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:
