‘Living Coral’ has been announced as Pantone’s 2019 colour of the year. Described as “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge,” it speaks of warmth and nourishment. ‘Living Coral’ gives a nod to nature, play and travel, and is expected to dominate the design industry this 2019 – including many home interiors!

So, how can you incorporate Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2019 into your home? Here are some inspiring ideas to bring in a burst of energy and positivity into your home.

Make a Statement

Adding a pop of Living Coral to your existing interiors is a great start. From statement furniture to display pieces like jars and pendant lamps, you can definitely give your living spaces a colourful uplift.

If you’re looking to add the warm colour in understated ways, introduce pieces that give the room a subtle accent, like a side table in coral tones. You can also opt for soft art pieces or even throw pillows that embody the warm hues of orange and pink.

Play with Colour Palette

As a warm colour, Living Coral is beautifully accentuated when paired will cooler tones that lie at the opposite end of the spectrum, like blues and greens.

Another way to tone down the warmth of the coral is to partner it with neutral tones of timber and white.

Dare to Dream

For the more adventurous souls, try introducing living coral as a feature wall; a bold and beautiful choice. Compliment it with paler shades to seamlessly incorporate the colour throughout your home.
