Influential Style

Pantone Color(s) of the Year by Shanna Shryne

Move over Marsala....for the first time in the history of color, Pantone has selected two colors.

ROSE QUARTZ & SERENITY

A softer take on color, these two inspire peace, balance, and tranquility.  According to the brand, they also transcend cultural and gender blurs.

I love the combination of these two colors. The warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue demonstrate an inherent balance. These shades evoke a type of sunset that makes you stop in your tracks.

Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. It is a great color to mix with neutrals and a black and white color palette.

Serenity is weightless and airy, like a blue sky, bringing feelings of relaxation even in turbulent times. It is still a color that is growing on me and I have found the conceptual images below as ways to bring these two color palettes into your home and decor.

Color Of The Month: Cadmium Orange by RAC

A COLOR THAT GIVES US ALL THE VITAMIN C WE NEED. 

CADMIUM ORANGE IS A SUBTLE SHADE OF ORANGE THAT IS BOTH FUN AND SOPHISTICATED. THE COLOR EVOKES A SENSE OF FANTASY AND OPTIMISM. ORANGE, IN ANY HUE, IS DRAMATIC AND IS A GOOD COLOR TO BALANCE OUT NEUTRALS, DARK OR LIGHT. 

WE LOVE INCORPORATING THIS RETRO COLOR INTO INTERIORS. HERE'S A FEW OF OUR FAVORITE INSPIRATION SHOTS TO HELP BRING THIS POP OF COLOR INTO YOUR HOME.

A House in Black by Shanna Shryne

As interior designers, we love to seek inspiration in all styles, trends, and classic historical aesthetics. Halloween is a great time of year to bring focus on a darker side of design...especially Gothic Style. 

This style dates back to the middle ages and throughout history has proven to be a strong influence in design. Originating in France, this style was built with a purpose and built to last. It spread in the United States and has outlasted the test of time still appearing in many modern day interiors. 

Gothic style is all about the grandeur and drama. It brings ornate lines and dark color schemes which are very popular this time of year. 

By incorporating gothic design touches into modern day spaces, you can bring a unique look without fully committing to this bold style. Dark, textured materials, arches and symmetrical architecture all are ways to execute the medieval aesthetic. 

In the spirit of Halloween, take a look at Shanna Shryne Designs’ favorite Halloween inspired furniture. 

Happy Halloween from Shanna Shryne Design!
