13 Pantone-Inspired DIY Projects
In case you missed it, Pantone unveiled two 2016 Colors of the Year — Serenity and Rose Quartz. As soon as you see the colors, it becomes obvious why Pantone raves about “the beauty of this harmonious color pairing.” Make it a New Year’s resolution to soften the dark jewel tones of last year with the pastel peacefulness of 2016. Instead of going all out with pastel shades, let the pink and blue balance each other out perfectly with one of these DIY projects. From gift wrap to planters, these DIYs prove these colors aren’t just for nursery decor anymore.
