Y’all, I’m not going to lie. When the Pantone 2016 colors first were announced, I wasn’t sure how I felt about them. They just didn’t seem very new or inspired. But I actually do think, with the right styling, they can be stunning and romantic. Here are some ideas on how you could incorporate Rose Quartz and Serenity together, without it looking like a baby shower:
