How to Decorate Using Pantone's 2019 Color of the Year
Pantone revealed their 2019 Color of the Year and designers everywhere are rejoicing!
A far step from the exotic Ultra Violet that was deemed the color of 2018, Living Coral is an exciting shade with gold undertones that make it perfect for decorating with neutrals, yellows and oranges for a warm and exciting interior. Here are a few ways you can incorporate Pantone’s color of the year into your interior.
Color Blocking Textiles
One of the most exciting ways to decorate with coral is through color blocking. Mix different shades of the color as well as pinks, yellows and oranges via the use of textiles to bring that warm pop of color into any room without having to make permanent changes to the home.
If you’re lukewarm on Living Coral but want to try incorporating it into your home renovations this year, opt for a patterned tile backsplash in your kitchen or bathroom. A funky print will add an instantly retro feel to your home, giving your interior the visual interest it needs without flooding the space with color.
Rounded sofas are making a comeback in 2019—Why not incorporate Living Coral into that design trend while you’re making updates to your home? A statement sofa in a coral shade is a great way to add a little drama to your living room.
Refurbished furniture is expected to play a big part in design this year. Adding some hits of Living Coral to an old and tired armoire or dresser will make the piece a conversation starter when guests come over.
In the Bathroom
For a quick weekend project, update your bathroom with a fresh coat of coral paint. It doesn’t take much to elevate the design of your bathroom, especially if you already have unique fixtures in the space.
On the Ceiling
Instantly warm up any room with a few coats of coral paint on the ceiling. If your home has brass fixtures, antique accents or neutral shades, this is a great way to make your interior design stand out.
