USING PANTONE COLOR OF THE YEAR

Pantone’s Color of the Year is “Living Coral” – so how do we use this color in contemporary interior design?

One of the reasons this color was chosen is because of the age we are living in.  Technology has changed the way we interact with people and it’s important to make our environment a friendly, happier place more than ever.  Living Coral can be described as social and optimistic as well as joyful.  Pantone states “vibrant, yet mellow PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.” It is both energizing and soothing.  So how do we bring this unique color into a sharp and contemporary interior look?

It’s all about the accents, friends.  Accent walls, accent furniture, and accent pieces.pantone-2On the Wall

When you use Living Coral on the wall, use it as an accent wall – on one wall along with other neutral walls.  When incorporating an accent wall, be sure to balance the color around the room by using that same color in accessories, custom window treatments, or custom pillows.   If you prefer a bolder color palette, use it with opposites along the color wheel, like aqua.

Accent Furniture and Accessories

Consider accent furniture to bring the color of the year into your interior.  Whether it be a chair, table, desk, or dresser, accent furniture in a contrasting color adds visual interest to any room.

Purchasing accessories in Living Coral is a great way to bring this trend into your home for an updated look without the investment of new furniture pieces.  A throw, custom pillows, or artwork can be introduced as a pop of contemporary color creating new life in your space.pantone-5

Monochromatic

 If you really, really, just can’t get enough of this color you could go completely monochromatic and create the entire room in Living Coral- just to truly hold up to its name!   However, be sure to incorporate a neutral floor and accents for contrast.    pantone-8
