Exploring Pantone Colour of the Year 2019: Living Coral

by | Jan 2019 | Design, Lifestyle, Products

“I hate orange.”, there, I said it! I’m not overly fond of red either. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love colours but there is something inside of me that evokes anger when I see these colours en masse – I must have had a bad experience in my previous life. 

However, there is something about the middle ground of all three colours that captures my attention. Needless to say that when the folk at Pantone  released their colour forecast for 2019, you could say I was peachy keen to see more! 

Who is Pantone you ask? Pantone is a unique colour system that is used in design industries. Each year they analyse global trends across lifestyle, technologies, socio-economic conditions, among other matters, then they to deliberate on the colours we are going to see more of in the year ahead and ways you can apply it with complimentary colour palettes.

With an epicurean headline like that, what is not to love?! You’ll see Living Coral coming through in 2019 with graphic design, fashion, home and interiors. Can’t wait? I’ve had fun scouting around to discover how you can get it right now…
