In Living Coral: Decorating with 2019's Hottest Color

Living Coral Color Of The Year

Every year, a team of trend forecasters, designers and colorists at the Pantone Color Institute sets out across the globe with the mission to find the next distinctive color to reign supreme. They spread to different corners of the planet, cataloging the colors and patterns they see repeatedly in everyday places. Yoga studios, shuks, salons, stadiums, galas and all sorts of events are visited and attended to help the team determine the color that will set the global mood for the next year.

This year, Living Coral stood out from the crowd as a radiant contender. The color is synonymous with positive emotions, like optimism and carefree living – feelings that seem to be in shorter supply nowadays.

Incorporating Living Coral

Such a bold color can seem daunting to introduce into otherwise mild palettes. Nonetheless, coral can be a surprisingly well-suited substitute for tired pastels and uninspired neutrals. The depth of this shade seems to soften sharp lines, while complementing its surroundings. In 2019, Living Coral is a particularly popular choice in interior decorating, fashion, social media and graphic design.

Because it is so well-suited to accent other colors, incorporating the year's hottest shade is a breeze. Floral arrangements come alive with the balanced blaze of pinks and oranges. Throw pillows and bedding are modernized with the unexpected pop of color set into loose paisley and geometric patterns. Events acquire a soft, dreamlike feel with floating arrangements made of matte Living Coral and metallic balloons. The mix of finishes and spring colors paired with Living Coral creates a light and airy feel with subtle dimensionality.

We also love the versatility and endless design options that decorative ribbon brings to a tablescape. Use vivid Living Coral and cerulean ribbon as lovely binding for fresh flowers or, to add finishing touches to candle holders and vases. For a welcoming treat, incorporate the color of the year into a seasonal wreath for the front door.

Living Coral

Balmy spring nights signal the beginning of wedding season. Whether a small, intimate affair, or the social blowout of the year, Living Coral can bring a soft punch of color to the big event. Pair the color with burlap, gentle lavenders and pinks alongside wood finishes for a gentle country chic vibe.

For a more dramatic statement, wrap your event chairs in decadent shades of deep blue and add Living Coral ribbon as a bright accent. The stunning pairing will surely set the right tone for an unforgettable evening.
