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!

Whether you’ve fallen in love with this color or are on the fence about using it, we hope this post has inspired you to take advantage of this trendy color. Let us know how you use it on by tagging us on your social media post!

Why You Shouldn’t Follow Trends

Following trends makes it hard to design a truly livable home. Your average growing family can’t maintain white couches, white cabinets, white everything! A slim, leather couch isn’t as comfy as a big, plush sectional sofa. You may like the look of modern furniture, but it’s hard to fall in love with the feel. Plus, the upkeep of making it look picture perfect all the time is stressful!

As beautiful as this kitchen is, it may not be right for you.

TV Spoiler: They’re Staged Photos!!

The many rooms that you swoon over on Pinterest and HGTV are staged. That means a designer will place coordinating decor, fluff pillows, and stratigecally place furniture in the picture. This look does not last! It’s removed and then you start living in them. So don’t stress if you home doesn’t look picture perfect all the time!

The placed linens and glassware in this photo aren’t there 24/7!

Dont shy away from Sentimental Touches

I grew up with school photos and Christmas cards hanging on the fridge. But nowadays, that would completely ruin someone’s aesthetic. Actually, we cringe a little inside when we see magnets.  Add some sentiment back into your house! The old table, centerpiece, and pillows add so much personality to this room! Shelving adds space for personal knick-knacks and picture frames, too.

These blue walls bring in more personality than gray; and the shelving allows for family picture frames!

Pick a Color Scheme that YOU Like

We get that white and grey matches everything, but who cares? You should base your home’s colors off of what you won’t get tired of seeing everyday, something that shows your personality. It keeps it more interesting than if you were to match your neighbor’s color scheme.

Here we see a bubbly personality shown through light blue and coral.

Mix Textures, Colors, and All the Above

We love an eclectic design. You’ll look well-travelled and it makes a room cozy very quickly. This technique defines your space, the way you chose to mix stripes and floral, or glass and leather.

Cowhide, brick ,and cottons; what a mixture!

Walking into a house should be like reading a story; so tell yours as you design! You may live in a cookie-cutter built house, but the interior doesn’t have to be!
