Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2019 is Living Coral, a fresh and vibrant hue that can be used just about anywhere in your home. According to the experts, this colour reflects our desire for authenticity, connection, and intimacy in a society where digital technology and social media are becoming increasingly embedded in our daily lives.
One way of incorporating this ‘not-quite-pink’ and ‘not-quite-orange’ hue into your decor is to paint one feature wall whilst keeping the furniture and soft finishes in neutral tones. Another way is by including a statement piece of furniture upholstered in this vibrant shade. According to Pantone, Living Coral can be used as a striking focal point or as part of a palette inspired by the sunset.
Living Coral is all about seeking and welcoming joyful pursuits, light-heartedness and positivity. We couldn’t agree more, which is why we’ve found some examples of how you can incorporate this wonderful colour into your home!
In The Lounge
Try a throw or blanket in this fun and bold shade. In a neutral living room or bedroom, a colourful coral tone will add an instant spark of interest while warming up the cool tones that dominate the space.
In The Kitchen
In The Bedroom
Add a punch of coral to your bed or couch with a fun scatter cushion. A coral accent pillow looks especially lovely paired with a backdrop of cool grays and crisp whites.
