Pantone Colour of the Year 2019
28th December 2018
Pantone have announced their colour of the year as PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral. An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.
"Vibrant, yet mellow PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment."
Pantone says the shade was selected in reaction to the onslaught of digital technology and social media which is increasingly embedded into daily life. Sociable and spirited, they believe the engaging nature of this colour welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity. Optimistic and joyful the tone embodies our desire for playful expression.
We've already seen a resurgence in pink tones for interiors so it feels like peachy shades will become the new 'millennial pink' as we move into 2019. While unlikely to be a popular choice for floors we can see it complementing grey and cream shades of carpet perfectly.
