Following Ultra Violet, 2018’s rich jewel-tone, the latest on-trend color is a bright and vivacious hue perfect for livening up your home in the new year. Say hello to 2019’s Pantone of the Year: Living Coral. Below, we’ve got some easy tips on decorating with this stylish shade that won’t require a lot of time, money, or effort.

Set the Theme

This year’s Pantone shade evokes the image of warm, sandy beaches and tropical drinks by the pool. You can create soothing vacation vibes all year long by incorporating Living Coral into your décor. If you want to create a light an airy seaside vibe, look into decluttering and adding casual coral accents – like textiles, rugs, or candles – that enhance the atmosphere of relaxation.

Keep it Complementary

Of course, going all-in on Living Coral might be too bold a choice for a family home. You don’t have to overhaul your entire color scheme to add warm pops of this shade throughout your living spaces. You can offset all the bold coral using tasteful, comforting neutrals – like ivory or gray – or playing with other colors that provide contrast. For example, the pinkish orange of coral may look especially lovely alongside opposite shades on the color wheel, like deep greens or teal.  

Reuse and Repurpose

You don’t need spend a fortune buying all new home accessories to enjoy Living Coral in 2019. To save money without sacrificing style, look for ways you can transform what you currently own. A quick coat of spray paint can refresh old candlesticks, salt and pepper shakers, or the odd knick-knack. If you’re crafty, sewing up coral-colored throw pillow covers is a simple way to update your furniture.

Add Fresh Florals
