For 20 years, Pantone’s Colour of the Year has been hugely influential in multiple arenas including fashion, home furnishings, and industrial design, as well as product, packaging, and graphic design. This year’s pick, Living Coral, is proving to be no exception.
Described as energetic, optimistic, warm and vivacious, this vibrant colour pairs wonderfully with many hues, particularly our favourite aquatic tones as pictured below.
As Yeong Sassall writes In Vogue Living (Dec 2018): So how does Living Coral stack up when you apply it to interiors? While at first glance, it might seem like a tricky one to master,[…] we found a myriad of ways to incorporate it into our lives. From soft, terracotta iterations to deep shades of peach and blush – we think Living Coral is a colour we can really get on board with.
As we always advise, if you are not into making massively bold statements, or do not have the wherewithal to make radical changes, it is easy to liven up your space with soft furnishings.
“Colour is an equalizing lens through which we experience our natural and digital realities and this is particularly true for Living Coral. With consumers craving human interaction and social connection, the humanizing and heartening qualities displayed by the convivial PANTONE Living Coral hit a responsive chord.” – Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of The Pantone Color Institute.
