Living Coral – Trend Colour of 2019

A bright and cheerful shade - named Colour of the year 2019 by Pantone: "Living Coral" is a bold orange pink with gold undertones. This colour brings an energising atmosphere to any living area and can be combined in a variety of ways.

A prestigious trend colour - Living Coral as a balancing lens

For over the past 20 years, the Pantone Colour of the Year has had a significant impact on product development and purchasing decisions in numerous industries such as interior, fashion or product design. The selection process for "Colour of the year" requires careful consideration and trend analysis: It considers colour trends in the entertainment and film industry, art collections, fashion and other design areas as well as new technologies or social media platforms.

"Colour is the balancing lens through which we perceive natural and digital reality. This holds true for Living Coral in particular" and according to Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute, the reason for choosing this stimulating hue. Pantone Living Coral is a cosy colour, which occurs naturally in our environment, while also providing invigorating effects on social media.

Coral red in the living room

Inspired by reefs, natural beauty is now making its way into our four walls. Used in a targeted way, this warm coral red creates pleasant colour accents, conducive to a welcoming and cosy atmosphere. Numerous exhibitors also showed how the colour trend Living Coral works in the living space at the international furniture fairs IMM Cologne 2019 and Salone del Mobile 2019.

Accessories in trending tones are a cost effective way to freshen up and adding a little holiday feeling to the interior spaces. Vases, cushions, carpets or pictures can be used. This must-have nuance can also be achieved by bringing sofas or wooden chairs into the living room. Living Coral elements also work well in cream and white kitchens or in modern, minimalistically furnished living rooms.

Versatile - from natural materials to bright colours

Coral reefs are considered the most bio diverse habitat on Earth. In the depths of the sea, they offer a wide spectrum of colours The abundance of colours in the coral reef is presumably also the reason why this bright warm hue combines so well with other tones.

Vivacious coral red makes a great combination with natural materials such as wood or pale stone. Naturally inspired shades such as taupe or sand also form a round overall picture with the colour.

Crisp white or warmer whites are a nice addition to the confident Living Coral. However the bright hue also works particularly well in harmony with grey and anthracite; bringing out its lovely character? Even more intense and luminous, Living Coral comes into its own with black. Black has a grounding effect on this living pantonic colour and creates a dramatic impression. It is lively yet elegant when combined with gold or dark red, but the hues become summery and vivacious when combined with turquoise, yellow or green and petrol tones.
