How to embrace this joyful saturated hue at home.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year: Pantone’s Colour of the Year announcement. And for 2019, we’re leaping from Ultra Violet (which to be honest, we saw pretty much nowhere) into something with a bit more of a tropical vibe: “Living Coral.”The amount of adjectives Pantone is throwing around to describe this pretty pink-ish shade is almost a little much (“Vibrant yet mellow,” “sociable and spirited,” “nurturing,” “a lively presence within social media”) but we’re on board. It’s a step away from dusty Millennial pink, but still with that youthful playfulness, and the saturated colour can make a serious impact in a neutral space.Pantone claims this winning hue is symbolic of “our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits,” and we’ll admit: it’s at least putting a smile on our faces to think about all the great opportunities for accessorizing that accompany this choice.Want to get in on the Living Coral trend?
