The new year means a new “Color of the Year” from the designers and color experts at Pantone. This year’s choice is Living Coral, which the brand refers to as a color that “embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.” Living Coral is vibrant and bold and works with a surprising number of color schemes. Our Vail Valley architects came up with a few ideas for incorporating this striking color into your own home; they are detailed below:
Paint an Accent Wall
While this bold color may be overwhelming for an entire room, painting a single accent wall in Living Coral is an easy way to reinvigorate your existing décor. One wall is fast and easy to paint, and the cost is minimal, particularly for the amount of impact involved.
Since Living Coral is inspired by the bold coral found along reefs, why not bring this naturally occurring color inside? This shade is naturally found in many flowers like peonies, dahlias, roses and more!
Living Coral is inspired by real coral reefs and the colorful animals that live there. Take your own version of Living Coral by adding durable outdoor accents to your patio or porch. Weatherproofed throw pillows, an all-season rug or even decorative painted metal pieces can all be used to add a punch of natural color to your patio or porch and incorporate this lively shade into your home.
When you incorporate a brilliant shade like Living Coral, a little goes a long way. Incorporate this lively and dynamic shade into your living spaces using throw pillows, tabletop accessories and artwork. You’ll love the energy it brings and won’t be overwhelmed by the brilliance of the color.
Incorporating a color like Living Coral into your home gives you a chance to freshen things up without making a huge financial investment or taking up a lot of time. When you add some simple but elegant accessories and touches, your whole room will feel current and up to date. If you’re ready for a change just in time for spring, consider adding some of Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2019 into your home!
