It's a boy! And a girl!

The Pantone Color Lab asks its designers and manufacturers every year to set the trends that will lead us all to create amazing decor with the perfect tints and shades. For 2016, the results of the blessed event were twins: pale pink and baby blue. Pantone wants to help guide you towards evoking a certain mood when choosing indoor/outdoor decor fabric, and Patio Lane is here to help.

A closer look at Pantone 13-1520 (known as rose quartz) and 15-3919 (now called serenity) shows the pale colors' versatility and calm, soothing palette; "an antidote to the stress of modern day lives," Pantone said in a press release. That's always something to think about when coming up with the perfect design for any space — an intimate alcove to curl up and read a good Kindle or a conversation spot for friends to catch up. Indoors or out, fabric choices for cushions, pillows and upholstery always circle back to the same question: how does this color scheme make me feel? In the stressful world we often find ourselves, we all should pay more attention to the places important to us and how we can make them more appealing while choosing durable, easy-to-clean fabric.
