The Pantone Colour of the Year 2019 has just been announced, and the Good Homes team cannot wait to introduce the vibrant but mellow hues of Living Coral into their homes.
This warm and energising shade is inspired by the influence of digital and socal media in our everyday lives, and aims to express our need for playfulness and wellness.
Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Institute says, "Colour is an equalising lens through which we experience our natural and digital realities and this is particularly true for Living Coral. With consumers craving human interaction and social connection, the humanising and heartening qualities displayed by the convivial Pantone Living Coral hit a responsive chord."
Pantone 16-1546 Living Coral emulates the familiar and invigorating characteristics of colour found in our natural surroundings. Most commonly found beneath the waves, this bright and beautiful colour enthrals the eye and mind while replicating one of the many calming, kaleidoscopic colours formed by coral reefs.
