For the first time, the colour authority named two hues that would dominate design trends for 2016. Rose Quartz, a warmer embracing rose tone, and Serenity, a cooler tranquil blue, make for a perfect colour pairing that will bring a soothing and calming sense to any space.

Why not add these pretty pastels to your home's colour palette? Here's how:

Paint the walls
What better way to inject Rose Quartz and Serenity into your home than by splashing the walls with these colours? The soft, subtle hues are very easy on the eyes and perfect if you are wary of something too bold of a change in your abode.
