You’ve likely seen plenty on the topic of this year’s Pantone-proclaimed design duo for 2016. And with a day dedicated to romance coming soon, we’ve narrowed our focus to Rose Quartz, a color that suggests in some circles, the look of love.
As a color, Rose Quartz is light, airy and uplifting. Pantone attributes the hue to the relief of stress and anxiety. Perhaps an ideal palette for your next office update?
According to the Gemological Institute of America, people in the earliest recorded times believed Rose Quartz to possess magical powers related to healing and the prevention of aging, later becoming known as the “love stone” for its ability to provoke feelings of love energy.
Those practiced in Feng Shui consider Rose Quartz a prized crystal for love and marriage, believing that it not only promotes love of others and oneself, it cleanses one of pain and negative energy.
As Pantone colors go, we’re smitten, and ready for a little (or a lot) of it at home. Paired with chic gold accents, we’ve found linens and leathers, wallcoverings and trimmings that are irresistibly pretty in pink.
Bonus points if you caught our references to awesome 80’s movies.
