Diving into the Pantone colour of the year 2019

PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral

“An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge”

The Pantone Colour of the Year 2019 – Living Coral - is already making waves, and it’s easy to see why. Bold, bright and vibrant, yet warm and mellow, this playful colour is the perfect accent colour for kitchens and bedrooms – adding a pop of natural light and energy to your room.

Inspiring a new season in style

For two decades, Pantone’s Colour of the Year has influenced everything from fashion and home furnishings to packaging and art. As keen followers of the latest design trends, we’re introducing Living Coral into our 2019 colour palette and bringing you fresh colour ideas for the new season ahead. Here are just two of the ways you can use this spectacular shade to create colour contrasts at home.

Living coral in kitchens

Living Coral’s stand-out qualities make it a must for distinctive kitchen designs. Paired with the paleness of white or cream kitchen schemes, it makes a strong impression and bathes everything with a warm glow. Used sparingly, coral accessories create islands of bright colour that transform your kitchen into an inviting and inspiring place.

Living coral in bedrooms

PANTONE 16-1546 is such a positive, life-affirming colour, it’s a natural choice for fabrics and furnishings. Energise your bedroom with coral cushions. Layer up with on-trend velvet or silk throws, and pillowcases. Or refresh your bedroom scheme from the floor-up with a striking coral rug and lively upholstered fabrics and furniture.

Living coral in a home office

Pantone Living Coral emits what’s beneath the sea, creating a calming environment for your workspace. Paint an accent colour wall or make a statement with a coral desk chair. The aim is to not overwhelm your room with this Pantone colour, but to add subtle hints in your office accessories. Stay neutral with office furniture incorporating sleek and sophisticated white door fronts.
