Pantone's 2016 Color of the Year

I intended to write this post at the very beginning of the new year, but since we're still in January it's not too late. Pantone selected two colors for 2016 instead of one - Rose Quartz [Pink] and Serenity [Blue].  I searched the Internet for photos in those colors before looking around my house for tea ware.

Below is my teacup featuring the Queen Mum on her 100th birthday.  It comes the closest to Pantone's colors of the year.

~ Also, one of my tea angels. ~

I photographed two other teacups, but they weren't the right shade of blue.  Do you have any teacups, teapots, or tea accessories in Pantone's Color of the Year?  If so, please share.

The 2016 colors remind me of baby shower colors - soft and delicate for a baby girl and boy.


  1. This is neat to sdee - where did you get that awesome pic of those two beautiful tea sipping ladies? I'd love to pin it but I try to find the source before doing so.

    Lovely colors, aren't they? I adore your Queen Mum teacup - isn't she fantastic? Imagine 100 years - twice my age - how does she do it? I swear I FEEL 100 years old most days! Genes - make ya or break ya, lol. LONG LIVE THE QUEEN! ♪♫ ♥

  2. Perfect. I will be converting my guest room into a nursery style dorm room for all my grandbabies. My colors will be right in style!I do plan to mix in a vintage minty green, too.

  3. Your collection of Color of the Year photos here today is just lovely. I LOVE the shot of the macarons!
