What this means for fashion, beauty, interior design, home furnishings, accessories….

Be prepared to see this shade incorporated into every day life, wether it be a splash of this colour gracing our sofa in the form of cushions or a blanket in this hue, in the kitchen with accessories matching the colour, in our outfits with patterns displaying the tone or in our make up with lip, cheek and eye colours matching the colour.  This colour will add impact to anyones room that is already painted a trendy shade of grey, add a pop of colour to a workspace, add interest to an outfit and so much more!  I’m really excited to see where people take this colour!

My thoughts on Living Coral – the Pantone Colour of the Year

As soon as I saw the colour, before even knowing what it was called I loved it.  It is a colour that evokes happy memories from childhood, is comforting and warm, bright without being too loud or overpowering.  I really love it and am already thinking of ways I can use the colour in my day-to-day life.
