Decorating with Pantone’s Living Coral

January 23, 2019


Just as cinephiles wait with bated breath for the year’s Academy Award nominees, so too do designers await Pantone’s announcement for its color of the year.


For 2019, the authority in color matching chose “Living Coral” as the trend, evoking a “vibrant, yet mellow” spirit to take us through the winter doldrums and straight into the energy of spring and summer.


With hues of pink and orange and a golden undertone, Living Coral is the pop of color you’ll need to freshen up your home. We’ve chosen five products that will help transition your spaces into a more playful color palette.

If you need a statement piece, look no further than this Anthropologie sofa. The textiles can be customized from an entire rainbow selection of velvet and slub velvet, but we’ve chosen the plush “Blossom” color, which complements the brass legs to create a modern yet playful centerpiece.
