Living Coral – Colour of the Year 2019

Living Coral – Colour of the Year 2019

I love Coral. It’s my happy colour. So, I’m excited to see the range of coral accessories currently in the shops. Thank you, Pantone, for making Living Coral the colour of 2019!

According to Pantone, Living Coral is “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energises and enlivens with a softer edge”. Well, I’m sold!

But how easy is it to update your home with coral?
Here’s 5 effortless ways…

1. Throw Cushions

This is the quickest way to swap in a new colour trend. Use scatter cushions in bold corals or printed coral fabrics to include this pop of colour to your home style.

Velvet Coral? Well that is just a luxury overload!

2. Area Rug

A new rug can refresh a living space and give a new vibe to a room. Introducing a coral rug will also give your home a colour trend makeover.

Wayfair has a great selection of on-trend rugs, so you could opt for a block of colour to add a big statement, or a coral pattern for a subtler effect.

3. Furniture

Adding a new piece of furniture can also update a room. How about adding a dollop of coral with a Dollop Footstall? Comfy, luxurious, and a vibrant pop of colour – this is a lovely addition from John Lewis.

Or how about a side table? This versatile metal frame from IKEA is perfectly practical for indoors or outside use.

4. Paint the Walls

Why not go bold and embrace this ‘life-affirming hue’ with a feature wall?

Try Dulux’s Coral Flair for a visual treat. This will bring energy and life to any room.

5. Vases

Not quite ready to be so bold with your coral? Just adding a simple vase in this happy colour will update your home and jazz up a small space.

Habitat have some lovely coral vases which will do the trick!

Or if you’re just after a sprinkle of coral – you could just get the Pantone mug from Amazon!

If you’re swapping in soft furnishing for a new season,
self-storage is a great option to keep items safe and dry until you’ll need them again. Shurgard have some affordable storage units available which helps to keep your home interiors on-trend and clutter-free.
