Furniture & Lighting For The Pantone Colour Of The Year 2019 – Coral
Pantone just unveiled shade of the Year 2019. The choice is subtle surprising and yet we find ourselves strangely invited by it. The colour is Pantone 16-1546 Living Coral and it’s an extremely puzzling and fascinating shading. Last year we all saw Ultra Violet come and go. It’s out of the box thinking saw this years choice aim to create a more optimistic and brighter kind of inspiration. We find ourselves considering Living Colour is a soft colour delicate and fragile but also energising vivid and vibrant the shape of Interiors to come. We’re excited to see what the special combination is going to offer and inspire over the course of 2019.
The sensitive and warm nature of Living Coral is a dazzling fit for certain spaces, for example, nursery rooms. Coral-painted dens and side chairs look beautiful in Scandinavian Style interiors, especially when contrasted against the brilliant whites and other pale woods. White and light pastel tones work just as well, we adore the Noguchi Paper lamps by Vitra and the Made to Stay bubble lamps with the bright vivid Coral. Opaque lighting provides both a contrast of white when turned off and a warmer more inclusive look when warmed by the glow of artificial light.
Colour is unique as cold as provide an exciting opportunity to style your existing lounge in a new and exciting way. Afterall, Living Coral as color of the year 2019 was meant to bring us comfort and to inspire us to be more joyful, what better place to do this then in the living room. This lovely and distinctive coral can subtlety be utilised in a room’s accents and styling with different tones to acquire a wide range of varying outcomes. With other bold contrasting colours like deep navys and racing greens a deep and striking scheme can be achieved.
Drawing again on the inspiration intended for this years colour. Coral is typically used as a colour that’s meant to feel playful and clean. Whilst it can be tricky using it as the main source of colour in the kitchen, it certainly puts you on the fast track to a creating a stylish and cheerful space. Again, if you want a more delicate look try pairing your corals with creamy shades of white and taupe. It tones down the drama of contrasting browns and coral and gives a lighter look and feel to the room. It’s also much brighter, open up your windows for some natural light and you’ll have a definite happy, playful space to bake in.
Be sure to read How to Decorate With the 2019 Pantone Colour of the Year – Vogue Living This is a wonderfully informative post… and we’re huge fans! Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2019, Living Coral, has been described as energetic, optimistic and spirited. A quick look at the colour and how it pairs with oceanic blue and aqua and you can see the potential of such an affirmative tone. The deep pinky peach colour has been chosen as the hue most likely to trend in 2019, and we have to say we’re loving the warmth and vivacity of Living Coral.
Coral is cheerful, tropical, stimulating and warm. It’s an energy color, more exciting than daring, but still fun. In nature, coral ranges from rich pinks to a deep reddish-orange, and the color can be found in the exoskeletons of tiny animals that form coral reefs, the petals of flowering plants, butterfly and exotic bird wings and bands of light at sunset. Coral is a positive chi color, both enlivening and soothing in your decor. Interestingly, Coral is a mix of red and orange, which ultimately means red and yellow, lightened with white. You can get coral by blending 3 parts rose-pink paint and 2 parts yellow paint, or, get back to basics, and mix 1 part clear orange, 1 part rich red and 2 parts white to lighten things up.
