We’ll admit it: we’re a little bit in love with Pantone’s 2019 Colour of the Year, Living Coral.
We’re also a little bit in love with the colour palettes that Pantone announced in their PANTONEVIEW Home and Interiors 2019 report – Cravings and Classico.
Described by Pantone as “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energises and enlivens with a softer edge”, Living Coral somehow manages to be both vibrant and mellow at the same time.
It’s an immersive colour you’re going to see everywhere, from fashion runways to home interiors.
Hot tip? Pair with brass, gold or black. With Living Coral’s golden undertone, these pairings will make the colour glow.
Here are some ideas on how you can incorporate the most on-trend shades of the year into your design.
If you’re going bold, commit to going bold and paint a whole wall. Painting is an affordable way to completely change the look and feel of a space. If you’re going bold, commit to going bold and paint a whole wall.
Alternatively, consider painting a feature wall in the living area or even the kitchen so you can pair the coral with brass or black accents.
Alternatively, get crafty and be a bit different by painting the risers on your stairs or a door separating two main spaces.
Using soft furnishing is one of the easiest ways to introduce colour and an excellent way to tie each room of the house together.
Grab a coral throw or statement cushions for your couch. Pop a coral bedspread on the bed to bring a bit of colour into your bedroom. Drop some rugs onto the floors, whether it’s a in a central room like the living space or a runner going down the hallway.
Accessorise, and then accessorise some more
Whether it’s vases, table linen, some trinkets around the house or even fresh flowers, accessories are the perfect way to bring a pop of Living Coral into your home.
The softness of Living Coral means it’s the perfect colour to use against deep colours and neutrals.
It matches almost every tone you can think of so it really is the perfect shade to complement every item in your home.
