Color Trends are very fast moving, so it's important to stay up-to-date with the current trends. With the new year here, this is the best time to start updating your home to feature fresh hues throughout.

Pantone, the self-proclaimed global authority on color, releases their “color of the year” to guide designers, decorators, and homeowners in what they believe to be on trend. This decision is made primarily based on popular culture as well what is represented in current events. For 2019, the chosen color is “Living Coral”, a vibrant, yet mellow pink that we think you’ll be very excited to incorporate into your life!

Living Coral

What Is Living Coral

Every year, Pantone selects a color they feel has a global message and will be trending over the course of the year. Their predictions can be seen in fashion, home décor, and even social media. Last year’s color of the year, Ultra Violet, “lights the way of what is yet to come.” The blue-based purple was a bold choice that was hit or miss for some.

According to Pantone, “Living Coral emits the desired, familiar, and energizing aspects of color found in nature. In its glorious, yet unfortunately more elusive, display beneath the sea, this vivifying and effervescent color mesmerizes the eye and mind.” We’re very excited to incorporate this color throughout our home.

Ashley Dudich, shop owner and home blogger at All The Design agrees. “Living Coral is a beautifully vibrant color that I would love to bring into my home,” she said. “I can imagine so many ways to incorporate this punch of color, whether as a light accent or as a bolder statement. This particular shade of coral is playful, inviting and sure to bring a soothing element to home spaces and beyond.”

The one concern you may have when thinking about bringing Living Coral into your home is that it’s a shade of pink, which can make a space feel too feminine. However, because Living Coral is more of a mellow pink, it lends itself to a neutral palate. “Living Coral doesn’t have to equal a pink home,” says Dudich. “Pair this hue with whites, creams, grays, blues, or greens to neutralize and compliment.”

You can easily add a full or partial accent wall and pair the color with natural wood and stark white for a contemporary look. If you’re not afraid of color and looking to go bolder, use Living Coral as the neutral base and incorporate rich jewel tones or metallics.
