Drum roll, please…

 

The 2019 Pantone Color of the year is…

 

                          .Living Coral

 

 

Why on God’s green earth should you care? Well, my friend, it is going to be everywhere from retail to home decor, to your toothbrush. So let’s get acquainted…

 

Pantone describes it as:

 

“An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.”

 

They also go on to describe how our lives are pretty messed up with technology a shifting environment and this color will enable connection, intimacy and authentic immersive experience ( I am paraphrasing).

 

I do believe that color can affect your mood...but calm down.

 

So, how can we incorporate this color into our home decor without going crazy? Trying a few home decor pieces like throw pillows, curtains, vases, bath towels, rugs or tableware. This color will look amazing with the current home trend of gray and white.

 

If your feeling DIY, you can always paint an accent wall, trim or molding in your home. Or a piece of wood furniture.

 

Now if you want to go nuts-and sometimes you do. What about painting the concrete in your back patio? Or if you have money to burn how about new countertops?

 

And finally, if you are low key like me or a commitment-phobe. How about a nice bouquet? Simple, easy and lets you test drive this color without commitment or upsetting your significant other.
