I can hardly believe we are in the first week of 2016 and another year is already behind us – as is another Pantone color. Goodbye Marsala; hello Pantone’s color of the year 2016: Rose Quartz and Serenity! For the first time ever, Pantone’s color of the year is two colors – two soft tones that reflect connection, wellness and a sense of order and peace. I love the soft hues of pink and blue together for both boys and girls because they reflect gender equality and blur the softer more sensitive side of boys, with the stronger, more assertive side of girls. Rose Quartz and Serenity are both colors I am excited to introduce into my beautiful boys’ wardrobe and decor in 2016. Will you dress your babiekins in Rose Quartz and Serenity?
About Debbie Jovel, Contributor
I am a mom who has spent the last 20+ years working in the fashion Industry; my passion for fashion truly is 24/7. I have directed and managed Creative Design teams for global brands designing and developing: children's wear; women's wear; hard goods; beauty products; accessories & footwear. I love writing for Babiekins as my outlet for all things petit because I get to share my favorite fashions, decor and playthings with my fellow moms -- a result of my constant obsession with pinning and trend research which really never shuts off! I consider myself very "pinteresting" because I am always on the search everywhere for inspiration. Together, my family and I (my husband, son, dog and cats) love to explore and travel to experience and discover everything and anything new. I am a Minnesota girl who moved to New York City, then San Francisco, then Germany and can't wait to see where in the world our next adventure will be. Yes, I am busy; but I enjoy every second of motherhood, designing, traveling, exploring, writing, living, loving and laughing. You can find me on Instagram @petit_swag.
