Bright, positive, and vibrant – these are all the perfect way to describe this year’s Pantone Colour Of The Year, Living Coral. A stark contrast in comparison to last year’s Ultra Violet, Living Coral provides the pop of colour that you may be looking to add to your home. Through small accessories or complete makeovers, Living Colour can help bring new life into your home.
An easy way to bring the coral pop of colour to your space is through well placed tabletop accessories. The 2019 colour of the year may seem daunting to add to your home, so start small with a vase of flowers like coral peonies or dahlias atop your dining table or kitchen counter. Not only will the addition of flowers add colour to your space, but plants are always a great addition to your home because fresh flowers can boost your mood and reduce stress levels. If you have any dark wood in your home like your dining table or coffee tables, living coral provides a gorgeous contrast to the dark tones in the furniture.
Fresh Coat Of Paint
Is there a room in your home that is feeling a tad dreary and could use an upgrade, add a fresh coat of paint! Living Coral would be a great accent wall colour or for the entire room, depending on the space. This vibrant colour would be a great addition to a children’s space looking for a more playful look or to add a pattern to a wall such as colour blocking. A fresh coat of paint on a piece of furniture could also be a fun addition to a space, whether it is a side table or a dresser. Try refinishing an old dresser by painting the entire piece white, then adding a coat of Living Coral to the fronts of the drawers.
Play With Pillows
The simplest way to make a quick change in your home is switching out your pillowcases on any decorative pillows you may have. Whether it is in your living room or bedroom, this vivid colour allows for a dynamic look in any space. Living Coral is great in combination with navy blue, charcoal grey, or white, so try to design a palette with those colours in mind.
Make an impact by adding texture into your decorating. Whether it is a throw blanket or a stylish rug, adding Living Coral coloured textiles are a great way to brighten up any space. Depending on the size of your space, you can use a Living Coral area rug as the statement piece for a living room or office space. If you’re looking to incorporate the colour of the year in a smaller way, check out options for wall tapestries that use Living Coral as an accent colour – tapestries are an easier way to switch art in your space without the hassle of hanging a massive piece of art.
