Pantone Color of the Year 2019, Living Coral

Design

There are many ways to integrate this color into your home. Pick from whatever tickles your fancy! Starting small is always is safe route to go; pick small home items that lift the mood. This pillow and blanket throw pair would go great together in any room of the house, small or large. Pantone hopes to bring “evocative [thoughts] of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of color,” which is perfectly encompassed in this pillow print.

 

What a cute coral pillow.

 

Draw in the attractiveness of this hue by taking it a step bigger. Furniture dressed in Living Coral makes a statement. Here it’s shown with a toned-down blue; this complimentary color scheme will reflect a bubbly personality. Or be daring and match it with equally stand-out colors. These could be more pastels or bold colors to add vibrancy and excitement to the space. Make a statement with it on one wall, then follow through with a neutral color palette. Subtly tying it in with decor is very effective and would give any room a fresh breath. Choosing to work with this color can be daunting, yet do-able.

Fashion & Beauty

If you’re not ready to commit to the color inside your home, incorporating it into your daily life can be very effective. The featured tassel earrings are the perfect little hint of Living Coral, and who doesn’t love matching their earrings with their shoes? Peachy shades have made a comeback this year in the makeup industry, so embracing this warm color will get you on trend too. Aside from the eyes, lips are a great start when exploring this coral hue, you can even go monochromatic and wear a lip shade that matches your eyes and blush; then pair it with a white outfit to stand out.

Adorable handmade earrings!

A Timeless Holiday Season

The holidays brings joy to many. Pinterest-fanatics can finally implement their “Christmas Decor” board and deck the halls with holly for the cold season. We run into a common issue though; modern interiors were very popular this year, and you may be concerned on how to maintain the clean aesthetic while still being jolly. By picking a color scheme, keeping decorations impactful, and other techniques, you can have a happy holiday season while still impressing the family.

Color Coordination

Everyone knows the classic colors red and green; they’re a go-to when choosing items at the store. Using lots of these together can create a jumbled feeling in your house and often don’t suite the existing color scheme. Silver and gold are great substitutes to fix this problem. Silver can be beautifully paired with red or green. It will create a modern look and glimmer like newly fallen snow. When silver is the main color, it may be accented with both red and green, making an extra festive look. Gold works the great with red, adding hints of luxury with the warmer tones. This pair creates a very welcoming atmosphere for guests.

Here we focus on the red theme.

Try doing the unexpected for Christmas too! Blue decor can effectively create a winter wonderland with silvery whites. Or a wreath adorned with cinnamon and oranges will be eventful and have a welcoming smell.

Soft blue with silver reflects a wonderland.

Impactful Decorations

Placement is a big factor when decorating. Overcrowding with trivial items will waste away in the space and look cluttered. A few complimentary items next to each other, or a large item, will have the best effect when centrally placed. Working off this emphasis is beneficial, growing around the space. This will then make the design effective.

Your eye goes directly to the merry sign!

Use Existing Items

You may have a few table-scapes already set up or decorative water cans hanging around your home. Good news for you! Save money by incorporating these. Just update them to fit the current season. Evergreens, red berries, and candles are cheap items that can be placed around a centerpiece. Add wintery foliage and lights inside pots or vases to maintain that holiday glam.

Time to use those pots you have laying around.
