We delved deeper into how nominated colour of the year for 2019, Living Coral, is set to decorate our interiors.
Digital technology and social media are increasingly becoming a vital part of our everyday lives. According to a landmark report, the average person in the UK spends over 24 hours per week online. We are moving towards a world where everything lives in the digital sphere.
This is why Living Coral is a breath of fresh air. It is a reminder of the beauty living outside of our screens – nature. With it’s bright hues, it represents the need for authentic and immersive experiences that many of us now neglect. It is a nurturing colour, full of warmth and buoyancy – a fusion of modern life.
Executive Director of the PANTONE Colour Institute, Leatrice Eiseman, reinforces the sentiment behind choosing Living Coral:
“With consumers craving human interaction and social connection, the humanising and heartening qualities displayed by the convivial PANTONE Living Coral hit a responsive chord.”
There is no denying that Living Coral possesses the ability to breathe life into your interiors. Despite the beauty of it’s pinkish-orange shade, the golden undertones are what allow the colour to be radiant.
If you want to have fun with your furniture, Living Coral is perfect for you. For example, a scallop armchair in Living Coral will immediately give your interior a mid-century feel. If your living room is starting to feel slightly grey, this is the colour to resuscitate it. Whether it’s a bright lampshade, or our very own Eden sofa in Cherry fabric, there is one thing we are certain about: Living Coral expresses the energy and vitality we aspire to in 2019.
Breathing life into your interiors
If you’re not feeling brave enough to invest in a sofa just yet, there is another way to bring this colour into your home – statement walls. You don’t alter Living Coral to fit your home – you alter your home to fit Living Coral!
It might feel like a big step to splash this colour across an entire wall. However, this is a nurturing hue that appears natural in it’s surroundings. Regardless of the furniture it is paired with, it is bound to bring an element of joy that no other colour can.
