Pantone’s color of the year famously inspires interior designers and decorators alike to mix up their palette each year and try something new. For 2019, Living Coral is the new hue du jour. Equally bright and bold, coral automatically refreshes any room and provides a lively touch. Because it’s such a powerful shade, we’re providing you with three ways to make the 2019 color of the year work for you, no matter your comfort level.
1. Big Statement – Paint
Give a mudroom door or a forgotten wall a chance to pop by painting it coral. This is perfect for those who want to embrace this color in a big way. Here, an entryway is given new life by a coral door that immediately attracts attention.
2. Playful Pops – Art, Rugs & Decor
Use coral-hued artwork, rugs, or a lamp to brighten up a room. Coral seamlessly blends with neutrals and other colors for an easy interior update. In this room, bold, minimalist artwork and a fun rug both incorporate coral and work together to liven up a living room.
3. Everchanging Accessories – Textiles & Florals
For those inspired by coral but hesitant to make the first move, accessories easily bring this color to a room without the commitment. Pillow covers, throws, and stunning floral centerpieces effortlessly instill the energy of coral into a space while being easy to change up when the mood strikes. Here, vivid color is added via beachy coral sculptures and coordinating throws and pillow covers.
