Twenty years ago PANTONE created their first ever ‘Color of the Year’ with a colour named Cerulean, which became so popular it was featured in a scene with Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep in the film The Devil Wears Prada, in a power smackdown. The point is, PANTONE create colour and we live the colour, literally. Designers and Artists all over the world will use these colours in their creations whether it’s fashion, interiors or media and so beings ‘The Trend’.

Upon choosing the colour Pantone, analyse everything around them; what people are doing, what people are wearing, what’s happening in make-up trends, and what people are posting on social media and then the new colour is born.

This year PANTONE’S colour of the year is ‘Living Coral’. A vibrant almost orange, almost pink kind of colour. PANTONE describe it as “An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.”

It’s a striking yet mellow colour and teamed with the right contrasting palette can bring warmth and relaxing fun to life.

Pantone is expecting their new colour not just in small accents like vases and cushions but on a larger scale too like sofas, rugs and feature walls. It’s a welcoming colour full of buoyancy and vitality, already it’s having a huge impact on the 2019 market.
