Each December, the international color forecasting authority has declared “Living Coral” the color of the year for 2019.

On Thursday, they announced the pink-orange nature-inspired hue will be the next big thing next year, calling it “an animating and life-affirming shade of orange with a golden undertone.”

According to the Color Institute, Living Coral “emits the desired, familiar, and energizing aspects of color found in nature.”

Introducing the Pantone Color of the Year 2019, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral – an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge. Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression. #COY2019

Ironically, the announcement was made on the same day of news that global emissions of carbon dioxide have reached the highest levels on record.

Every year since 2000, the Pantone Color Institute has unveiled a hue that tries to capture the collective mood of the country, influencing what consumers will soon see in home decor, fashion and beauty and product design.

“Just as coral reefs are a source of sustenance and shelter to sea life, vibrant yet mellow, Pantone 16-1546, Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment,” Pantone announced.

In 2018, Pantone selected Ultra Violet as the color of the year, with Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, calling the bold purple hue “a reflection of what’s needed in our world today” noting it “communicates originality, ingenuity and visionary thinking.”

How to use this color?

Pantone’s year of thoughtful color analysis also translates to a welcome dose of fun for 2019. Expect to see rugs, couches, lamps and accessories in “life-affirming” coral tones.

“This color works well with other jewel tones like teal and navy — and it’s perfect with taupes, grays and beiges as well because it has a golden undertone. Although it’s a feminine color, the Color of the Year is stunning when combined with navy, making it more masculine if used as an accent.”
