Earlier this year, Pantone announced that the Color of the Year will be Living Coral (16-1546).

The Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, Leatrice Eiseman, said: “Color is an equalizing lens through which we experience our natural and digital realities and this is particularly true for Living Coral. With consumers, craving human interacting and social connection, the humanizing and heartening qualities displayed by the convivial PANTONE Living Coral hit a responsive cord.”

This vibrant colour presents peach and soft orange tones that we expect to see across not only in the fashion industry but also in interior designing. So to celebrate it, here’s how you can incorporate this fun and poppy colour into your home. We’ve rounded up some of the Living Coral-coloured furniture and decors you can buy.

If painting your wall or changing your wallpaper is too big of a step, you can start by choosing coral accents for your home. This shade works well with earth-tones commonly found on traditional stone or earthware. In and Out Pots are great accents to take your decorating scheme a notch higher. You can add some contemporary flower of the same tone too. Add this as a centre-piece on your dining table or living room to create an artisan vibe.
