Bed Linens and Pillows

Changing the bed linens are easier than painting walls. Pick out pillow cases in both colors but with different prints to make your bed (or sofa) more interesting. Finish off with bed linens in neutral colors that will complement both.

A very easy update is a rug in both hues. Choose one with big prints to highlight the soft colors.

Accent Chairs

Accent chairs can add pops of color in a minimalist space. What’s great about these two colors is they’re muted and will not overpower your room’s existing color scheme.

Another way to incorporate Pantone’s colors of the year is to use them on your drapes. The light hues will make your room brighter especially during the daytime.

Items for the Dining Table
