A little bit of Coral in your Life - Pantone’s color of 2019!!!

 


Have you noticed that the color coral is super popular this year? You're likely to find it in any store you visit, popping up on home goods like pillows and candles, clothing and shoes, and it's definitely present in the makeup and beauty aisles.
is a vibrant yet mellow coral with a golden undertone. You aren't imagining things - "Living Coral"l is the Pantone Color of the Year for 2019.

Pantone chose “Living Coral” in reaction to the impersonal, false sense of community that has been a side effect of social media and digital technology being embedded in out lives. Pantone sought a color that would provide feelings of warmth, comfort, connection and intimacy and "Living Coral" definitely fits the bill. 

You can see from what I am wearing in the picture below that it’s easy to pair coral with colors that remind us of skin tones – warm, healthy, glowing tones of caramel, buff, tan, dewy pinks and chocolate like the ones found in my headband.

This palette reminds me of a tropical paradise and all the beautiful colors you find under the sea. 
Think of a coral reef.


Combine "Living Coral" with these fun, psychedelic colors, for a 
style reminiscent of a Warhol painting.


Evoke the colors of the sun rising and setting, when you pair 
"Living Coral" with any of these tones.


Below is an example of the warm, healthy skin tones I alluded to above -
 caramel, buff, tan, dewy pinks and chocolate.
