Today is the last day of The Diamond Jubilee, which celebrates Queen Elizabeth II’s 60-year reign on the British throne. People across the UK are celebrating Her Majesty, and Pantone and advertising agency, Leo Burnett, commemorated her fashion-forward style by launching a limited edition color guide. The guide captures her most memorable color choices since her coronation, which include primrose yellow, crystal blue, pink carnation and ice green.

 Pantone Queen Elizabeth II Color Guide

This elegant dining nook reminds me of the Queen, with its monochromatic crystal blue color scheme mimicking her style, and the luxurious furniture that is truly fit for a queen. I wouldn’t mind having a cup of tea with the Queen in this space! What do you think of the limited edition colors? Tell us in the comments below.

    I want to have tea – and biscuits – with her in that nook, too! I'm more of a bright color fan, but the Queen pulls off the softer tones.
