The color of the year for 2019 was recently announced by Pantone, who has influenced design and other industries for 20 years. This year’s color is “Living Coral”, a vibrant but mellow orange tone. It is spirited and playful and will add a pop wherever it is. Here are a few ideas on decorating in your home with this joyful color.
Typically, a bright and bold color such as Living Coral would be limited to accent pieces in the home. However, this one is welcoming and easy to work with, so don’t be afraid to paint a whole room with it. If you’re too nervous to take a big jump, think about starting with a small room such as a guest bathroom. It’s also a great color for a couch if you’re in the market for a new one. This color is versatile enough to go with different palettes, so it adds a perfect pop to neutral greys and greens or blends in nicely with brighter hues.
Accent the Outside of the Home
Since Living Coral is a bold shade, it’s the perfect alternative to the ever-popular red front door. If you want to stand out from other homes in your neighborhood, switching up the door color may be right for you. You can always re-paint it if you’re not happy, but take the chance and bring some brightness to your home!
Brighten Up Your Kitchen
This color is perfect for adding accent pieces to the kitchen for a happy feeling. Try searching for some faux floral decor to add to a glass vase, create some DIY artwork with the shade or display Living Coral cups and mugs in your glass cabinet! It is also great for hosting parties and gatherings, so any dishware in this color will make your food preparations pop.
There are so many ideas on using this color. Take a look at different paint swatches or decor in your local home stores and brighten up this dreary winter!
