The first quarter of the year is over but the newness of Pantone’s color of the year, Living Coral, hasn’t died down. In fact, we have come up with more ways to include this hue in your home, especially since it is the season for warmth and flowers, perfect for this color!
According to Pantone’s website, Living Coral “embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.” The color authority notes that people are seeking connection and intimacy due to the “onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly embedding into daily life.” Pantone says this color can evoke warm feelings with its lightheartedness.
Design experts say that the color can be overwhelming at first but it is easy to incorporate it into one’s home without being too feminine or bright - some concerns about the color invading home design inspiration pieces.
Here are 5 ways to use the 2019 Pantone color of the year in your home:
1. Paint your accent wall.
A very easy to incorporate this color into your home and energize your space is by painting the walls!
You don’t have to paint all walls - just choose a side and make it your accent wall. You can use this color as an accent wall in literally every room in your house!
2. Mix it up.
If painting a wall is too scary for you right now, have small pieces in your home reflect the lovely color. For example in your bedroom, you can have your beddings in this coral hue, or update your painting with a splash of this color.
3. Have one bold statement.
For the bold and daring, create a focal point with this color. Have your sofa reflect this color of the year and just update your little pieces with pops of color throughout the year. It goes well with navy, yellow, green - the possibilities are actually endless!
4. Start small with just pops of color.
Because of its warm hue that is a mix of lovely pink and bright orange, even small pieces have a mighty impact in a room!
5. Use accent pieces.
