Pantone Color(s) of the Year!

First, let me say, I’m not a huge follower of style or fashion. I step to the beat of my own drum. However, the last few years I have been inspired by the *new* colors Pantone has announced.

I didn’t really know what, or who, Pantone is — the language of color (how awesome is that self-proclaimed title?!?) — until 2010, when turquoise-peacock was all the rage. THAT caught my attention. I loved  blue as a girl, I love the beautiful colors of the peacock — and this turquoise-peacock-new-me hinted excitement in many of my favorite things.

I digress….

The Pantone color, Fall 2015 is actually 2 colors! Rose quartz and Serenity.


2016 Color of the Year



“Unprecedented” from the Huffington Post – and all I could think was, there is my blue for Live Lightly! I’m no Pantone expert, but the idea for a soft, yet calming, blue was really my feeling when I think of my version of minimizing the clutter, creating margin. The Year of Less!

I love the idea of order, peace. Happiness flows, life evolves from order and peace. Far from the struggle of the mundane, order and peace in your mind, in your heart allows me to give my time, my attention, my love to those around me. It allows me to thrive.

Living in a way that is easier on the earth, easier on my family, creating the margin we need to evolve into our better selves, to pursue our passions and become more of the person we want to be. Fulfilled, at peace, with order. I’m no fashionista, but I love the imagery of peace and harmony.

In our hectic lives, we need margin, we need peace, we need order. How will you find your peace, order, serenity today? Everyday?
