It’s that time of year again – after investigating popular trends in the entertainment, arts, hospitality, technology and sports industries, the Pantone Colour Institute has chosen the colour of the year. Introducing: Living Coral!
Pantone describes living coral as an “animating and life-affirming shade of orange with a golden undertone.” The colour inspired by the beauty of coral reefs is considered lively and inviting. According to Pantone, “just as coral reefs are a source of sustenance and shelter to sea life, vibrant yet mellow PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.”
Designing and decorating with Living Coral will add life to your home. Keep reading for a few tips on how to incorporate decorate and furnish with this beautiful colour!
Use it as an Accent Colour
Living Coral is the perfect accent colour when paired with neutral colours. If your family room furniture and walls are a monochromatic theme consisting of brown, tan and white colours, an effective way to include coral is by painting an accent wall. Additionally, you can accessorize with vibrant coral vases, curtains, furniture pieces, area rugs, throw pillows and blankets. Using living coral as an accent colour will really make your room pop!
Use it as a Base in a Monochromatic Color Scheme
Layer your furniture and décor in varying shades of Living Coral. These shades can include a rich brown, rust, apricot, peach and rose colour. You can use these colours in almost every room in your house!
Incorporate Coral in a Contemporary Colour Scheme
The undertones of Living Coral make a great contrast with blue! For instance, if you own vibrant blue, or blue-green furniture, then pair it with vibrant coral accessories.
Stylish Coffee Tables
A sleek coral coffee table would pair flawlessly beside a tan, white or grey coloured sofa! Design a stylish conversation area around the coffee table for you and your guests to enjoy.
Chic Sofas and Chairs
Incorporate chic, modern looking sofas and chairs in your kitchen, living room, or even on your outdoor patio. A Living Coral sofa or chair will look nice no matter what season it is. Accessorize these furnishings with black, white, grey or tan pillows and blankets.
Modern homes often consist of neutral colour pallets. Living Coral is the colour of the year because of its ability to enhance a room by adding an element of excitement and energy to neutral shades.
