According to experts at the Pantone Colour Institute, the hot hue when it comes to designer colour for the New Year is coral. Recently announced, this shade named 'Living Coral' is going to be 2019’s most coveted colour. “It's a colour we see in nature,” says Pantone Institute vice president Laurie Pressman. “Lying at the center of our naturally vivid and chromatic eco-system, it is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of nature’s colour and serves as a source of sustenance and shelter to sea life.”
With a golden undertone, this reddish, pinkish from the orange family, once cooled by the colour green has a certain 90’s charm. Here’s how to embrace every colour of coral for your home, wardrobe and beauty routine.
