Decorating With Pantone's 2019 Color of the Year: Living Coral!

Summer is here and regardless of the season, the time is now to celebrate Pantone’s vibrant color of the year. Living Coral was introduced and has been showing up on fashion runways to furnishings.  If you were to refer to the meaning of color, you’ll be clicking online or running quickly to a store near you.

“Pantone’s pretty hue for 2019, Living Coral, is all about embracing community and oneness — explaining that the color was chosen for its ‘animating and life-affirming’ quality, “with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge” — and we’re showing you a few cool ways to embrace it.” - The Chalkboard Magazine

With that in mind, here are a few inspiring ideas on how to infuse Living Coral into your home decor.

We love this bedding ensemble that’s warm, fresh and luxurious, created by Lagnappe Custom Interiors.
