Coral Neutral

One of 5 Trends We're Watching

Pantone’s color of 2019 is Living Coral, with an organic color from the world’s precious oceans. It could be a soft blush or a big saturated orangey red, coral translates that pop of color you need in a range of shades to work with what you have. 

Welcome to an era of warmer, happier colors! We’re seeing touches of coral in linens and towels, and on walls in saturated paint colors. An occasional chair? Why not!? Coral pairs perfectly with greens, desert colors, and shades of the sea. Bring fresh flowers and the new trend in floral fabrics into your home and garden with dahlias, roses, zinnias and pansies. It all pairs perfectly with last year’s color of the year, purple!

If you’ve followed the trends into cool pearl greys, a pop of peachy coral might be the perfect note. If your home is a warmer tone of taupe or grey, the softer antiqued shades of coral-pink adds vintage warmth. How could you translate this color into your décor? Try this: travel further into nature with light fixtures like this orb from Hudson Valley that combines organic branches with faceted crystal spheres. Bring nature to light!
