Pantone just announced their 2019 color of the year is Living Coral. They describe it as “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.”

Designers React

Designers are very excited about this choice including Aurore Martial of Domus Venus who told me, “After Ultra Violet last year, we’re definitely entering into an era of warmer and happier tones. Earthy tones are really in vogue, reminiscent of the 70s color palettes. I think we see a lot more of these pastel warm colors these days that are easily combined together to create beautiful mixes. I’d happily put it next to green shades or desert tones. It’s good to see more life coming in, this Living Coral is breathing a fresh air of happiness in interiors, hopefully, people won’t be as scared of using color in their homes too. If they are, and still want to stick to neutrals, the coral could be used as a nice contrasting color on accessories or woodwork.”

As Martial explained, this color might the mood-boosting shade we all need in our homes right now, “I like the addition of ‘living’ next to coral. It makes the traditional coral tone brighter and more invigorating. I almost feel in spring when I see it, yet it feels quite soothing too.”

How To Add Orange

Alexis Rodgers of At Home With Alexis saw this trend coming and used for the guest bedroom of homeowners Allison Weiss Brady and Chip Brady. She shared her key to using this modern color in a traditional space. “Every room has limiting factors; the challenge and the fun is how to use them to the room’s advantage. In this case, it was how to create a serene bedroom retreat in a small space without sacrificing color. This featured bedroom is the guest bedroom, and we wanted to infuse it with a vibrant, positive energy without overwhelming it. This careful balance of power is how I would describe the color coral: invigorating without overwhelming.”.
