Pantone 2019 Color of the Year: How to Make it Work in Your Home
Each year, the color experts at Pantone choose a shade of the year, one that they predict will be seen on runways and in architectural design magazines over the next twelve months. Pantone’s color of the year for 2019, “Living Coral,” reflects optimism, happiness and a harmony with nature.
Living Coral takes inspiration from the stunning shades seen on coral reefs all around the world, in tropical climates. Though it may have originally come from Mother Nature, the shade is now perfect for inclusion in interior spaces, even in the coldest regions.
If you like the color of the year but wonder how to decorate with coral, the key is to be bold. Don’t be scared of including this bright hue in your living space. Bright and cheerful, the addition of coral to your living room, dining room or bathroom can highlight the natural light that comes into the space even on the gloomiest day. In the bedroom, coral can be an inviting and welcoming shade that sets a happy mood.
Check out our top tips on how to decorate with coral and you’ll feel confident bringing this shade into any room of the home.
Use Coral to Accent A Simple Color Scheme
Even minimalist, simple decor styles can benefit from the addition of a little colorful accent. If your living room is done in mostly neutral shades, like white, beige, gray or taupe, a coral accent can help modernize the space. Try adding a colorful rug, accent chair, throw pillows or new curtains that bring in a coral highlight.
Work Coral into Your Art Pieces
Artwork that takes inspiration from tropical sea life is likely to include coral, as well as shades of yellow, green and blue. If you’re hesitant to incorporate bold colors, an art piece is a simple way to bring them in and see how they look once they are actually in your space. Simple oil paintings, hanging tapestries and floral accents can be easy to add to any space.
Try an Accent Wall to Reset the Feeling of a Room
If you really love coral colors and want to change the feeling of a room in your home, don’t be afraid to be bold and paint an entire wall in Living Coral. Choose a wall that receives a lot of natural sunlight, as the coral color will reflect this and naturally lighten up the entire room. Selecting a smaller wall is a good way to bring the color in without committing to a large change.
