The results are in! Ultra Violet is out, and Living Coral, a pink and peach hue, is in. Pantone recently introduced Living Coral as the 2019 Color of the Year.
Remodeling With Pantone’s Color Of The Year: Living Coral
Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year represents “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge,” according to Pantone. Pantone has been influencing home design choices with their Color of the Year distinction for the past 20 years.
This year’s color choice evokes the vibrant, sunny atmosphere associated with the beach and travel, but it also has a retro look to it as well. When you’re remodeling your home this year, Living Coral is a great color to look to for inspiration. You’ll see Living Coral-colored rugs, upholstery, throw blankets, appliances, and pillows explode on the scene in the New Year.
Kitchen Design Using Living Coral
Appliances and kitchen gadgets, like cutting boards, tea kettles, and Kitchenaid mixers can already be found in Pantone’s Living Coral. Living Coral is an ideal paint color choice for a kitchen remodel since its muted hue isn’t too overpowering. Look for Living Coral kitchen accent walls or backsplashes infused with pinks and peach colors this winter and spring.
Living Room Design Using Living Coral
To add Pantone’s Living Coral color to your living room interior, seek out rugs, throw pillows, lamps, drapes, and bright upholstery choices for your couches or accent chairs. The color particularly blends well in modern and contemporary living rooms.
Bathrooms Using Living Coral
When remodeling a bathroom, incorporate Living Coral for a sense of serenity and calmness. The color is similar to Pantone’s 2015 color choices detailed in our blog here. Choose Living Coral for your bathroom walls, shower tiles, or shower niches to accentuate the pop of color.
