Living coral: How to style the Pantone colour of the year 2019 in your home

Colour-matching brand Pantone has revealed the shade of 2019. We take a look at how you can style Living Coral throughout your home.

Earlier this year, Pantone announced that its go-to colour palette for 2019 will consist of shades to appeal to our playful side and meet our need for optimism and joyful pursuits. It probably shouldn’t come as a surprise then that earlier this month, it was revealed Living Coral is its Colour of the Year and will replace 2018’s moody and thoughtful Ultra Violet.

Described to be an ‘animating and life-affirming shade of orange with a golden undertone’, the possibilities for styling it in the home are endless. Whether it’s all-out bold colour-blocking or simply adding accessorising touches, we take a look at how you can style this energetic hue throughout your home.

Play with pattern

I Love Wallpaper

Give coral the spotlight by getting artistic with strategically placed pattern in any room in the house. Dot elegantly patterned cushions around, lay an abstract-design rug to draw the eye or go all out with a feature wall of playful pattern and channel your interior around it. Contrast with brilliant white, warm terracotta and even a bold teal to beautifully complement coral and make it pop.

A bold entrance

Whether external or internal, your doors can set the tone and feel of the whole house and help build the right atmosphere. Bright, airy colours are fantastic for this and coral is up there with the best of them. This cheery colour simply oozes positivity and happiness and provides the warmest of welcomes for visitors. Take a look at our Gio Pantone Living Coral internal door for inspiration or find out how we can match any colour for your doors, including this beautiful trending shade, which will be everywhere in 2019. 

Part of the furniture 

Note Design Studio

Create an impression with statement coral furniture against a backdrop of neutrals for added impact. Whether it’s a three-seater sofa to lose yourself in or a minimalist Scandi armchair, make this the hero piece of the room that inspires its surroundings. Living Coral lends itself to natural textures so don’t miss an opportunity to accessorise with linens, weaves and ceramics.

All in the accessories

Crane and Canopy 

Add stunning character to bedrooms and living rooms with accessories that add a vibrant edge without overwhelming. Keep interiors crisp and fresh with pops of colour against peaceful, serene creams. Think dramatic throws, flowing drapes and characterful bedding to accent. Refreshing a bathroom with this energising colour is easily done too – simply add coral-hued towels, vases and other small extras that won’t break the bank but will provide the wow factor.
