When Pantone announced that the Color of the Year for 2016 was a dual color combination of Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue, we were simply elated to find such a beautiful pairing of soft and tranquil hues. This pastel pink and powder blue color scheme would look absolutely stunning for a vintage wedding situated in a serene setting with elements that are relaxing and meaningful. Our inspiration board for today’s shows you a visual take on this calm and collected color combo using watercolors!
THE INSPIRATION BOARD
Enjoy a cup of tea and cake with this board because we chose an afternoon tea in a charming cottage set in the countryside as a springboard for our visuals! Take a step back to a time of gentility and grace with this color palette, as you will see below:
- Pink hydrangeas in a rustic bowl from Dreamywhites
- Waiting room chair via Pinterest
- Lemon scones from Pink Piccadilly Pastries
- Wedding Invitation Suite as seen on Brides of Austin
- Vintage porcelain cups and teapot via The Vintage Table
- Lady Fingers’ Cake by Sweet Sugar Boyed
COLOR PAIRING IDEAS
Wondering how to match this? Here are four possibilities for rendering Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue for your wedding! When matching the two colors, consider calming elements with a feel of the countryside, a lazy lakeside chalet, or a breezy garden atop a beach resort. Think watercolors in pastels or ombre with a vintage appeal, but don’t be afraid to consider a modern look (e.g., in geometrics) using this color combination!
