What’s to know about … Pantone’s Color of the Year 2019: Living Coral

Late last year, Pantone made its much anticipated annual announcement of its Color of the Year. Living Coral is what the organization calls “an animating and life-affirming shade of orange with a golden undertone.” Pantone called out our society’s need for authentic experiences in an age where we’re constantly digesting digital technology. Living Coral has a playfulness about it, yet is common in nature, especially under the sea where few get to experience its vivid display.  

 “Color enhances and influences the way we experience life,” says Laurie Pressman, vice president of the Pantone Color Institute, in a press release. “As a shade that affirms life through a dual role of energizing and nourishing, Pantone 16-1546 Living  Coral reinforces how colors can embody our collective experience and reflect what is taking place in our global culture at a moment in time.”

House & Home couldn’t help but find out how to incorporate this hue into interior décor and furnishings. Here are a few elements, some subtle, some not, that may provide that certain pop of color you’ve been searching for.
