Pantone’s annual colour of the year has been revealed, and the colour for 2019 was…drumroll please… a cheerful coral! Flirty, bright and fun, this unexpected tone creates a hopeful note as we head into 2019. Pantone describes the shade, Living Coral, as an “’animating and life-affirming shade of orange with a golden undertone”. The colour was inspired by coral reefs and embodies a sense of optimism and human being’s need for joyful pursuits.
Bring a sense of fun and joy into your home with Pantone’s colour of the year: we’ll tell you how:
1. Accent accessories
As with any statement colour, you want to avoid purchasing large or expensive items in this shade. Take it for a test drive with small, inexpensive accessories before you invest in a large-purchase article. Statement pillows or soft blankets are a fun way to bring a pop of colour into your life. Or opt for a whimsical conversation piece, like this bright coral Tukan figurine!
