Orangey pink, pinky orange…however you see it, Living Coral is the Colour of the Year 2019. We’re going to tell you how to take advantage of the energy and optimism it transmits.
Living Coral is going to leave its mark on fashion and decorating trends this year. If 2018 was the year of the provocative and mysterious Ultraviolet, 2019 will be dominated by this “animated and dynamic coral tone that takes a chance on life, with gold undertones that provide energy and dynamism with a touch of softness”.
Always a step ahead, Apple included Coral as one of the colour options for its new iPhone XR which was launched in September 2018. Brands have embraced the choice with enthusiasm and here we’ve compiled a list of the different ways you can integrate it into your daily life.
Elisa from Noveno Ce lists four colour ranges to combine Living Coral with, from neutral whites and creams to intense turquoise blues and mint greens.
The 2019 Spring/Summer collections are already showing the different applications of this colour. We saw it on the catwalks at Marc Jacobs, Prada, and Zac Posen, and in ideas from Elle, Woman, and The Telegraph.
At Hola, they suggest incorporating it into wedding fashion through shoes, bouquets, accessories, or headpieces. Will brides be game enough to try it?
Living Coral is the perfect colour to add to your makeup bag. Follow Vogue’s recommendation and try one of the lipsticks, blushes, or nail polishes that they suggest to add a touch of warmth and colour to your personal style. The new special collection Living Coal Butter London makes it easy for you.
Walls, furniture, fabrics – a colour as optimistic and natural as Living Colour has a place in almost any trend. Kravett is teaming up with Pantone to suggest fabrics inspired by this coral hue that are both lively and effervescent. Finsa is also offering a melamine finish named Coral Fresh which livens up interiors.
The big names of design and decoration have already put forward their suggestions for incorporating it into any room, from the bathroom to the kitchen, including Architectural Digest, Dezeen, and Elle Decor. Vogue has presented a selection of homewares which can provide the touch of coral that your home is missing.
