Pantone's Colour of the Year Living Coral burst onto the interiors scene from the Pantone Color Institute just in time to give our Summer decorating a life-affirming boost and we embraced it with open arms. Now as the weather turns cooler, we show you how to take full advantage of the engaging nature of this coral hue to extend its life into your winter home decorating.
According to colour experts, decorating with colour to stimulate happiness at home can help to create positive immersive experiences in our home. The coral reefs and tropical holidays that spring to mind in the light of the golden undertones of Pantone's Colour of the Year for 2019 form a strong colour base to work from. Living Coral is more than just a colour trend - vibrant and playful, this year’s Pantone colour of the year packs loads of personality and answers our innate need for sunshine and happiness in the home.
