pantones coral color with white tile floorThe Pantone Color Institute is highly regarded as the king of influence for color trends and all aspects of color design.  Since 1963, the Pantone Color System provides designers and consumers with fresh ideas of trending new colors and color matching.  Each December, we await with excitement to learn the Pantone Color of the Year, which influences marketing and interior design color choices. 

The Pantone 2019 color of the year is Pantone 16-1546, Living Coral.  The coral hue was chosen as a life-affirming, energizing hue with golden undertones to represent warmth, comfort and buoyancy.  In this modern, digital age, people are seeking immersive experiences with authenticity.  The desire for real connections has never been greater.  The 16-1546 Living Coral hue provides a vibrant yet mellow hue which symbolizes joyful and lighthearted connectivity.

Implementing Living Coral in Furnishings and Interior Design

To embrace this energizing coral color with new flooring, you might consider blonde hardwood flooring with a splash of coral tones throughout the room.  This effervescent coral hue would go well with blue carpeting, like real coral in the ocean, mesmerizing like the natural coral reefs.  You might consider a mosaic tile design which incorporates Pantone’s coral color of 2019, on either laid flooring tile or a custom backsplash. 

To add this lively, playful and comforting coral hue without new installations, you might consider lush upholsteries or cozy blankets strewn about the room.  Adding some shag carpets or throw rugs would also provide the playful and nurturing color to your existing décor.  Incorporating Pantone’s Living Coral provides a dramatic yet comforting pop of color to any room, whether in flooring, furnishings or accessories.
