Global color experts Pantone chose its color of the year for 2019, and it makes us want to go on a tropical vacation. The vibrant color Living Coral “embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment,” the company said.
The color was chosen in reaction to the abundance of tech in our lives. “We are seeking authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy. Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity,” the company said.
We love the color and think it’s the perfect way to transition from the icy colors of winter to the freshness of spring. If you’re looking to add some Living Coral into your home, here are three easy pieces that instantly put you on trend:
Coral Accent Chair
This slipper chair would look amazing in a corner of your living room, punching up the space with a pop of color. The watercolor stroke-inspired print is just enough of a pattern to make things interesting. And the streamlined scale feels sophisticated and chic.
Coral Toss Pillow
Take the shade down a notch with this lovely velvet sham that features coral in an ombre technique. It offers a subtle touch of color, while feeling quite glamorous.
Coral Table Lamp
Finally, add a coral table lamp to your living room end tables and instantly perk up the room. The beautiful glass base and matching shade will be as elegant as they are unexpected. When lit, the lamp will put the spotlight on itself.
Not everyone would list brown as their favorite color, but it’s a hue that everyone loves deep down inside. It’s the foundation of nature. It’s leather. Coffee. Chocolate. Caramel. We love brown for the sense of warmth and richness it brings to your home. Here are four brown home furnishings that would look perfect in any home décor.
A brown leather chair is timeless, and the shape you choose will reveal something about your personality. This leather accent chair borrows design elements from the past to create a unique Mid-Century Modern feel. The exposed black frame provides a touch of contrast that makes the beautiful brown upholstery look rich and sophisticated.
It’s casual, it’s urban and it has farmhouse flair. A faux cowhide rug makes a statement in you room, and its rich brown color feels down to earth and rugged. Highlight its unique shape by layering it over a rectangular rug. It would look beautiful in a casual space or it would provide visual contrast in a modern room that’s sleek.
Whatever shade of brown is your favorite, you’re sure to find a wooden piece that celebrates it. This wood and metal shelf features a dark brown finish. The open shelves provide a sense of lightness that gives the piece balance and draws attention to the beauty of the wood.
One of the quickest ways to add a new color to a room is with toss pillows, and this lovely caramel pillow is enhanced with beautiful crochet details. It would add richness to your sofa, accent chair or bed. Brown home furnishings are perfect for fall and winter.
When it comes to favorite colors, white might not come to mind. But white décor is classic, never going out of style. Crisp and clean, adding a pop of white to your room adds lightness. You can even go all in and create all-white spaces that show you’re confident and sophisticated. Here are four white furnishings that will add a special touch to your space.
A white leatherette armchair is sophisticated and chic, especially with the sleek chrome frame. Add one to the corner of your room, or a pair to a seating group. The white furnishings will make a statement in your room.
A white nightstand will bring a cottage feel to your bedroom. Pair it with an upholstered headboard or mix wood finishes for interest. The look is casual and laidback—perfect for a master suite.
A pair of white lamps will brighten your room—literally. Use them in your bedroom on nightstands, on a buffet table, or in a living room on end tables. The white shades and bases will work well in any décor.
Every season a shade of blue steps out as an “it” color for home décor, and indigo is having its day. Often confused with navy, indigo is a dark, almost black blue that has an eclectic sense of style. The color actually comes from a natural dye, extracted from plants, and it’s the basis for navy blue. If you love indigo home décor as much as we do, here are five easy pieces to incorporate in your rooms:
A quick way to be on trend with indigo décor is to add toss pillows to your sofa, bed or accent chair. This quilted sham provides a sense of luxury and indulgence. Imagine how it would pop against white bedding.
Add some indigo underfoot with a bold rug. This piece would provide a nice contrast to a room filled with ivory or cream, adding a casual touch.
Add some drama to the foot of the bed with a skirted bench in indigo. Since indigo is a bold color, balance your room with indigo draperies and accents on the bed.
An armless loveseat is a versatile piece that can be used in a foyer, at a dining table or in a family room or master suite. Covered in a striking pattern, the indigo color feels boho chic.
Finally, add some indigo home décor with a table lamp. The contrasting white shade looks crisp and clean, perfectly complementing the classic pattern on the base.
The hot color combination of the summer is blue and orange. These two shades are natural partners, as they’re complementary colors, opposite each other on the color wheel. Since opposites attract, the pairing is true love. Take a look at these three patios that make a statement in blue and orange. Which is your favorite?
Deep Orange and Light Blue
The rich deep orange cushions seem to pop against the cool blue outdoor rug. The modern shapes of the furniture further elevate the freshness of this setting. This patio easily transitions from summer to fall.
Orange and Turquoise
The color story in this patio is orange, orange, orange, and that makes the turquoise blanket pop. A little contrasting color goes a long way.
Blue and Orange
The blue sectional and blue rug get a pop of orange with a beautiful tangerine square tray and terra cotta planters. This combination is a little more subdued with just the right kick of color.
