2016 Pantone Color of the YearColor is a huge part of our everyday lives; it can change your mood, reveal certain personality traits and even make you hungry. Color plays such a large role in our world that each year the color experts at Pantone reveal the top color based on consumer trends and skillful predictions. And for the first time ever, Pantone has named not one, but two shades as their 2016 Color of the Year – Rose Quartz and Serenity.

Influenced by society and its ever-evolving ideologies, Pantone demonstrates through the choice of these two particular colors the increasing need for reducing the burden of modern day stresses and the consumer’s rising comfort with using color as a form of expression with less concern of being judged or stereotyped. The world is full of distractions and uncertainty, so it makes sense that consumers would look to these softer colors for an escape to a more tranquil and mindful state of being.

Rose Quartz is a pastel rose tone whose warmth conveys compassion and a sense of composure while Serenity’s cool blue tone exudes calm and relaxation. Put the two of them together and you’ve got a truly serene color combination that will definitely help you make sense of the busy outside world.

As colors normally associated with baby nurseries, Rose Quartz and Serenity are actually great for other rooms in your home. The pair is quite versatile due to the combination of warm and cool hues, and joins easily with other mid-level tones such as greens, purples, rich browns and all shades of yellow and pink. For even more visual interest, add pops of sparkle or reflective silver pieces.

And it’s easy to incorporate these colors in any rooms of your home. A Rose Quartz rug would look great on your hardwood floors while unexpected seating in the form of Serenity-colored poufs brings the space together. For your room, we love either of these colors on curtains and we recommend Serenity bed sheets and Rose Quartz towels to bring the peaceful vibes. If you’re still not ready for any major changes, throw pillows or candles will help you stay on trend without the commitment.

At Construction Resources, we’ve got a huge selection for you to choose from that will complement this year’s colors and beyond. From countertops and cabinets to flooring and faucets and everything in between, our design experts will help you choose the perfect products to complete any home improvement or design project.  Visit www.crhomeusa.com for more information and locations.

Need-To-Knows About Designing Your Dream HomeBuilding your dream home can be difficult enough, but add designing the interior to the mix and it is no surprise the entire project becomes extremely overwhelming. Construction Resources is here to make the process as seamless as possible. In any instance, be sure to know these secrets to designing your perfect abode.

First things first: you have to know exactly what you want your home to be like, down to the most seemingly insignificant details, to ensure that your vision becomes a reality. Determine your must-haves and wants and put them on paper. Gather pictures, paint swatches and examples to minimize confusion when you are conveying these desires to your contractor.

For example, what kind of:

  • Countertops
  • Backsplash
  • Fireplace
  • Bathroom vanity materials
  • Floors
  • Baseboard/crown molding
  • Light fixtures/fans
  • Appliances
  • Garage Doors
  • Lighting
  • Toilets, showers, sinks, faucets, etc.?

All of these items and more must be considered when designing a home. If you do your own research and planning, it will be easier to convey to a designer or contractor. A thought-out request, rather than a last-minute decision, holds more weight and less indecisiveness.

The next, most important task to designing your own home is to delegate and hire the pros you want to work with. Essentially, you need an architect to put true-life dimensions on your home, a general contractor and an experienced designer who will work with both to finalize the plans and implement them.

Cambria: Beyond the Kitchen With 126 designs that appease any creative need, Cambria is moving beyond the kitchen thanks to its durability, versatility and color varieties!

Of course, we have to credit Cambria’s ability to withstand even the toughest spills, scratches and stains as kitchen countertops and backsplashes, but here we explore other avenues in the home that this resistant, nonporous and nonabsorbent material can be utilized.

In designing and decorating a home, we are constantly seeking that “wow factor.” Cambria can most definitely fill that void. With Cambria’s assortment of colors and designs, there is bound to be the perfect fit to accent your living room, whether on the fireplace and mantle area or as a coffee tabletop.

Taking it further, thanks to Cambria’s impermeable design, this material is perfect for the bathroom. Cambria’s nonporous composition does not harbor bacteria or need to be cleaned with harsh, abrasive chemicals, making it an excellent choice for a bathroom vanity area, tub enclosure or even shower walls.

Cambria: Beyond the Kitchen

Moreover, if you want to make your own creation with Cambria, it is also the perfect material to top a dining room table or wet bar with. Cambria adds that taste of elegance while still maintaining a natural feel to any area. Some clients are adding Cambria to their home-theater rooms as a countertop on the snack and drink bar, or to their closets and laundry rooms as a utility-island space. Simple soap and water do the trick for a clean refreshed surface. Additionally, unlike granite and marble, quartz does not ever need periodic sealing, polishing or reconditioning once it is installed. That’s right, NEVER.

Cambria: Beyond the KitchenWant to give your grand staircase a more sophisticated touch? Use Cambria for the stairs! It is meant to withstand wear-and-tear because it is 93 percent pure quartz and will not absorb water or oils that could make it slick or slippery. Did you know that typical granite-tops only contain 40 to 60 percent quartz and the rest of its composition is made up of more porous, weaker minerals?

Cambria can essentially be used anywhere because of its low maintenance, durability and gorgeous color options that range from marble hues to metallic and backlit characteristics.

To view full-size slabs, 12-by-12 design samples and walk-through showroom displays featuring kitchen and bath vignettes, visit the Cambria Gallery – Buckhead located at 3096 Roswell Road in Atlanta. Daily hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and closed on Sunday. For more information on Cambria, visit www.CambriaUSA.com.
