Living Coral : 2019 Colour of the Year
Recently, Pantone has announced the 2019 Colour of the Year. This selection by Pantone sets in motion the colour trends for the entire year, influencing marketing campaigns, interior design, and clothing. In 2016, two colours were chosen; Serenity Blue and Rose Quartz, which are still impacting trends years later.
In 2017, the chosen colour was Greenery, and for 2018– Ultra Violet. Each colour is chosen with a purpose, to set a positive mindset going into the next year.
The colour for the upcoming year was chosen to encourage affirmation, comfort, and playfulness. That being said, the 2019 Pantone Colour of the Year is “Living Coral”. Consumers can expect to see the coral hue popping up in fashion across the world. The colour is subtle yet can be worn as a bold pop, and looks stunning on every skin tone.
Incorporating coral into everyday life is fairly simple; it can be paired with pastels, ocean hues, or dark shades to bring some interest into an outfit or home. Adding some throw pillows and a framed photo in shades of coral can liven up an interior, and finishing furniture in this vivid tone gives any space a unique feel.
Throwing on some lipstick, funky bracelets, or a fun bag in Living Coral adds light and happiness into a look. The Colour of the Year is sure to brighten anyone’s day, and bring positive vibes into the new year.
