Swimming in a Sea of Color

Living Coral 16-1546

In December, The Pantone Institute announced its 2019 Color of the Year, the hue the color experts believe will be front and center in home decor and fashion during the coming year. This year’s color of choice is Living Coral, which – according to Pantone – is a “vibrant, yet mellow hue that offers warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in a continually shifting environment. The nurturing color appears in natural surroundings while also representing the fusion of modern life and embodying the desire for playful expression.”

The Perfect Splash

While Living Coral is not for the faint of heart, there are many subtle ways to incorporate this inviting hue into your home.

Small pops of Living Coral can brighten and energize a space without overwhelming it. For example, consider adding a couple of throw pillows, candles, a throw blanket, or a piece of art in the sunny hue to infuse any room with an uplifting vibe. More adventurous spirits might opt to showcase the color in dining room chairs, a colorful side table or a painted accent wall.


Get Cooking

Another great place to bring in a pop of color is the kitchen. Lately, color has been making its way back into kitchens – from cabinetry to appliances and everything in between. Introducing small appliances, mugs and dinnerware in Living Coral is an easy upgrade that will deliver an extra dose of personality and charm.
