Quartz In The Sky | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

It would be nice if designers have new clients to propose new color trends every time Pantone comes out with new colors, but that’s not always the case and not always clients like the new trends. (Click on each photo to view it larger).

(Pantone 2016 – Rose Quartz – Serenity)

Rose Quartz and Serenity are the new colors for 2016. They look so retro and so much 1950s. The new colors are soothing, calming and bring peace in this time of so much turmoil. It’s a genderless palette that emphasizes the duality of today’s society.

However beautiful, soft and weightless they might be together, these two colors are not for everybody’s taste or skin. Some men will never live in a pink interior. It happened in one of my projects. The wife liked a lot of pink and peach on the wall, in the upholstery, in pictures and accessories, but her husband didn’t. They argued and discussed incessantly, I had to play a lot of my magic to quiet them down and bring the project to an end. I was able to add various shades of grey and earth tones to make most pink items disappear. In the kitchen he got his dark slate floor and beige cabinets with a lighter color contrast panels and she got her peach walls.

This year I have experimented with pastel color combinations in my clothes not in my interior and I am starting to like them. Knowing myself, it isn’t just enough to follow Pantone’s suggestions, my soft color combination will always have a splash of vibrant color. Let’s see how the rest of the world is treating Rose Quartz and Serenity colors.

I think this color scheme looks good with distressed wood and exposed beams.

I love the copper texture with quartz color. It feels very natural.

Transporting Colors Of 2016 | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

Girl-Pink-Green-1aWelcome to my Friday Fashion.
I looked and looked again, I studied and studied again, I thought a lot of the next Spring 2016 season. Some colors are exciting, some have potentials and some are really not my favorite colors. All colors are beautiful, I just prefer some colors over others.

The colors in 2016 will transport us in nature and calm places, quiet and soothing will prevail in the next season. One of the quiet colors to be with us in the Spring 2016 will be Rose Quartz. “It is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure” ~ says Pantone.

Knowing how to combine dull colors to make them come alive is a secret and a skill. Getting dress in vibrant colors makes our soul happy and the eyes of others as well. Every so often we might have the need to dress with muted colors to express a mood, an interior quietness and a subdued elegance.

The color scheme I chose for Spring 2016 is made of Lilac Grey, Rose Quartz and Snorkel Blue, all very muted colors for those of you who want to keep a calm color scheme for the work environment. At the end of your working day, you should come alive with vibrant colors, because the night is dark and you want to be seen. Get rid of the blue skirt and boots. Change into a Fiesta pants with red shoes, change your makeup lips and eyeshadow to bright red, you are ready to go from work directly to a pub.

Colors must change every year to keep things new and businesses going, don’t stress over too much.
If these colors don’t look good on you don’t wear them. As I always say, Fashion dictates, we choose what to wear. Ciao,
Valentina
