The 2019 Pantone Color of the Year is one we haven’t seen so much of in home designs, but it will definitely add an interesting pop of color in your new home.
What is that color?
It’s none other than … living coral!
Resembling something between pink and fuschia, living coral has been named the color of the year by Pantone, and we’re already seeing the color in home designs.
How to Use the Pantone Color of the Year
Because the Pantone Color of the Year is so rich and vibrant, you’ll want to use it sparingly, but it will definitely give your home a clean, soothing, charming vibe.
Here are a few items that may add an exotic appeal to your home in the color.
1. Throw Pillows for Couches
If your couches are a solid or neutral color, such as beige or brown, living coral throw pillows will add an eye-catching touch to your living room.
2. Towels and Rugs in the Bathroom
A simple way to incorporate the Pantone Color of the Year into your home is by swapping out your old towels and rugs for this vivid color.
3. Backsplashes or Furniture in the Kitchen
With living coral, a little will go a long way. If your kitchen backsplash needs an update anyway, consider including some tiles of this color along with a variety of other colored tiles. Additionally, adding some chairs in living coral is a smart way to bring attention to the color while not overwhelming the kitchen.
4. Picture Frames
If you’ve had the same picture frames in your bedrooms for decades, buying new ones or repainting them in living coral may be a fun and smart way to update the look and feel of the smaller rooms of your home.
Other Home Design Color Trends of 2019
If you’re planning to paint your walls, you may prefer some of the other colors of the year. If you choose colors that are more neutral for your walls, the living coral features will really accent your home. In the end, you’ll create a home design that is soothing yet exciting, charming yet modern, fun yet elegant.
