The Pantone Color of the Year 2019 has been named! It’s the very bright and happy Living Coral that’s meant to signify a revival in the hopes to energize and enliven people’s lives in the coming new year. The color is also described as “sociable and spirited” and is expected to foster optimism and “joyful pursuits.” Cool. While I can’t say I’d be grabbing coral beauty products inspired by this color, I am quite interested to incorporate it into my home. Fun fact: I made a secret board for a cafe dream two years ago and the color scheme was coral and teal.
I can’t say how a coral-everything room fits into my personal aesthetic, so a few injections here and there are the only things I can commit to. Pinterest is ripe with ideas, as usual, and I was more than ready to be inspired. P.S. Follow me if you haven’t yet!
A pop of life in the living room
Our couch is very neutral in color. I’ve read and watched interior designers say that it’s better to pick one that can be used for different types of themes, but this color is truly refreshing. I love how the rug matches the colour of the sofa. I’ve been thinking about getting a designer rug from Bazaar Velvet when the current one gets a bit tatty. I think a nice rug can really bring a room together!
An inviting entrance
Imagine being greeted by something this bright after a tiring day at work. It could be just what you need to feel invigorated.
Juxtaposition in the bathroom
The Pantone Color of the Year 2019 in contrast with the white tiles and dark grout of this bathroom is just the perfect example of opposites meshing well. I bet you’ll feel even more energized after a shower because of this combo.
An accent in the dining room
Will this bright-colored window make your meals taste better? I can’t guarantee that, but you’ll definitely have an interesting conversation piece when you have guests over.
A bright but earthy bedroom
A coral wall is already statement-making, so if you’re not the type to go full-on bright, tone it down a bit with more earthy and natural colors and decor. The earthy tone would make everything feel more calm yet bright, making your bedroom a great place to relax and enjoy while wrapped up on something like a Leesa king mattress. Blue is always good to pair with coral, but also try injecting some browns and blacks. For materials, jute and wool are great.
