In our last blog post, we discussed the past Pantone Colors of the Year and how they have inspired looks throughout homes, in fashion, and in other industries. This week, we want to introduce you to this year’s Color of the Year, Living Coral. At Windows to the World here in Northeastern Pennsylvania, we’re committed to ensuring that our customers feel happy and comfortable with the look of their home, whether that’s in window treatments or simply in helping with color choices. That’s why we’re happy to discuss color and its many uses—we hope it’s helpful for you!
About PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral
Last year’s Color of the Year was bold Ultra Violet. For 2019, it is PANTONE Living Coral, which is soft and mellow yet effervescent at the same time. It offers peacefulness and warmth and lets us feel a sense of relief in a continually shifting environment. As Pantone notes, Living Coral “is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of color.” In your home, consider using Living Coral on your walls, window coverings, custom bedding, accent pieces, or even kitchen gadgets and appliances to create a tranquil retreat and more. Add complementary colors such as aqua or seafoam in accent pieces to offset the specific coral hue and to create a complete ambiance.
About the Pantone Color Institute
Twice a year, color/trend forecasters and home décor and fashion designers meet to decide what the colors will be for the next two years. Before they meet, they must study past trends and forecast future ones. Influences may stem from new materials, textures, technologies, and effects that impact color. Color is not a designer’s whim. Color trends come from where we are, where we want to go, and how people are feeling or not feeling. “Color is an equalizing lens through which we experience our natural and digital realities,” noted Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
