Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year: Living Coral

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:

Color Crush: Brown

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.

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.

Color Crush: Indigo

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:
