If you follow decor trends, home interiors blogs, fashion or interior magazines you may have noticed all the fuss about the Pantone colour of the year. It has been revealed in so many blogs and magazines that the Pantone colour for 2019 is LIVING CORAL! Yeahhh!!!
The Pantone living coral is a vibrant yet warm colour present in nature. As described by Pantone:
There has been many controversy with the chosen colour, some people like it and others don’t! When I found out on Twitter I immediately loved it. I am not sure if it has ever been popular but, I tell you something, in my twenties I had a swimming costume in coral which I loved. So, I must have been into something back then ;-)… years later it becomes a colour trend… coincidence?… Ummmm… (thinking face).
So to celebrate that I already loved the colour and that it has become the next Pantone trend for 2019, I have come up with a selection of decor ideas to incorporate the colour into the home. And… just in case you don’t know which room you are going to decorate, I am giving you choices for every room in the house! So the only thing you have to do is to get inspired room by room. Ready? I leave you with an amazing collection of products in living coral for the living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and home office.
Living Coral in the LIVING ROOM
I honestly think that the colour is fantastic! The living coral colour can make the living room vibrant but I would just go for a statement piece or accessories. I wouldn’t go mad and make it all living coral… it would look hideous and that’s not the look you might want to achieve. Having said that, you might want to go for a bigger furniture piece such a sofa in coral or even the wall paper! In my opinion you don’t need to add a lot of coral for the room to look nice and trendy. But that’s my opinion anyway!

Pantone Living Coral in the KITCHEN
Kitchens can be very versatile and by changing accessories the kitchen can just look a lot different. So, you can easily add some living coral touches to the kitchen by introducing a kettle or even tea towels. The choice is yours but I wouldn’t go mad with the coral theme in the kitchen. Just a few pantone living coral accessories and you are done!
Here is some product inspiration I have found that would be brilliant to add some coral colour touches to the kitchen. Pretty please… do not got for all of them at the same time! Just pick a few details for the kitchen and you are done! I suppose the minimalistic in me is talking but I wouldn’t go overboard with the Pantone trend or it won’t look classy.

Living Coral colour in the BEDROOM
A few living coral colour accessories in the bedroom and it can just look so different! Maybe an accent chair, a painting or some cushions on the bed? With some details in coral, the bedroom can look fresh and vibrant. Why not combine it with grey or blue? I personally think that the grey and coral combination is stunning and elegant for a bedroom. However, if you like bold colours then combining coral and dark blue is a great option and looks stunning.
