It’s that time of the year again when the world goes into a frenzy and views everything with a tinted lens. What tint, you ask? It’s governed by the international colour forecasting authority. And this year’s verdict is out – it’s Living Coral. Yes, every year Pantone selects a new hue that it feels will define the 12 months ahead. This time, they announced the pink-orange nature-inspired hue, calling it the next big thing and describing it as “an animating and life-affirming shade of orange with a golden undertone.”
What do you think? We think it’s vibrant, comforting and got a happy feel to it. It’s a great colour to infuse into your home, in measured portions. It makes for a great accent colour, blends well with pastels and neutrals alike, and has a feminine yet modern, gender-neutral vibe.
Here’s some inspiration to get you started on coral-ing it up.
