Pantone's 2016 Colors of the Year in Kids Rooms

Pantone does it again! Who would have EVER guessed that baby blue and light pink would be the colors of the year for 2016?? Based on all the rich jewel tones and saturated colors they've picked in the past few years, I guess it was only a matter of time before they quieted things down and showed some love to some serene, muted colors.

I'm obviously a huge fan of color and can definitely think of ways to sneak these trendy little tones into my work... I think they definitely pair well with brights and fresh colors while nodding to the sweet traditional "boy" and "girl" colors. 

Here are a few color palettes that feature the colors of the year that I think would be AMAZING  in kids rooms!

What do you think? Will you embrace the muted, pastel tones of Pantone's Colors of the Year or will you just say "no thanks!" and stick with the brights?
