PANTONE Color of the Year 2019: Living Coral
PANTONE just released their 2019 color of the year – Living Coral! Leatrice Eisman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, talks about the inspiration behind this bright color. “Vibrant, yet mellow PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment… Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression.”
We love this pop of pink for a wedding or event and have seen it used for all seasons. Depending on the color palette, it can be played up to be bright and colorful or it can be played down as the focal point with more muted shades and darker tones. PANTONE’s palette exploration provides inspiration for color harmonies. Check out these past weddings for inspiration on how to incorporate this vibrant pink into your attire, florals, and décor!
