It’s that time of year again when Pantone announces their colour of the year. I don’t know why, but I always love to see what they’ve chosen!
For 2019, it’s the very pretty ‘Living Coral’ – which I must admit I much prefer to this year’s shade of purple.
Pantone describes this warm, joyous colour as “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge”.
Aside from the fact that I happen to love the colour coral, I think this is an apt statement choice for 2019 given the increased awareness around the impact of pollution and plastics on ocean life. Another recognition of life and its precious ecosystem.
On a slightly less deep level (it is Friday after all!), coral is a stunning colour for weddings (especially paired with navy, teal or grey!). So, to celebrate this lovely choice, I’ve curated a whole Pinterest board for your enjoyment!
