If Pantone has a say in it, the way we dress, our make-up choices and our home décor will be bright and lively in 2019. The colour experts at the renowned company have chosen “vibrant, but mellow” Living Coral as the Colour of the Year. One reason they have chosen the warm pink-orange shade with golden undertones is to counteract the barrage of digital technology and social media increasingly creeping into our everyday lives. The New Jersey-based company best known for its Pantone Matching System wants to bring back cheery, genuine and immersive experiences that foster connection and intimacy through the humanising and heartening qualities of the upbeat colour.

“Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity,” the people at Pantone explain. “Symbolising our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression.”

Whether you want a quick and easy way to inject splashes of optimism at home or simply add a pop of colour to your beauty look, the hue is the perfect choice. What’s more, worn with neutral colours like white, grey and beige or with different shades of itself, it’s the kind of colour that makes us even more excited about what we’re going to add to our wardrobes this year.
