Coral Captivation & Other Trends to Follow for 2019
Expansive ever-changing sunset hues. The rosy pink orange colors that pop against the darkening blues above the earth. The beautiful shimmering pinkish- and orange-reds evolving in the shifting light in warm Caribbean currents. Nature presents captivating coral colors in the most spectacular ways. Here are some tips on how to stay current and on trend with your decor.
Introducing the colors of the year for 2019!
Pantone's Color of the Year
It seems apropos that this decade ends with a spectacularly bold color of the year (at least as far as Pantone is concerned). Introducing the Pantone color of the year:
Living Coral is a duplicitous color that is both intense and soothing depending upon how it is used within the space. Other accent colors and accessories can play-up or tone-down this vibrant hue to create the perfect environment for you. Replacing last year's "Ultra Violet," this coral color adds a sense of energy and fun to the space and can also add a classic elegance when paired with the right accessories.
With the items above, we let corals play the "pop of color" role and let more subdued and neutral tones create a restful environment or truly go bold and dramatic room by painting an accent wall in this daring coral color (paired with soft white walls or, perhaps, Benjamin Moore's color of the year, "Metropolitan") and the space will take on a decidedly different feel..
Benjamin Moore's Color of the Year
We sort of segued into the this section my mentioning this versatile neutral. Introducing, BM's color of the year:
Imbuing a sense of sophisticated calm, Benjamin Moore's "Metropolitan" (AF-690) in the perfect neutral to playfully exhibit your color pops. (Including, perhaps some fun corals for 2019 and purples from last year's Pantone pick?)
Because Metropolitan is a great gray neutral, we can accessorize with just about anything. But, because our over-arching theme is corals, we'll stay within that vein.
This is a soft, warm gray neutral that balances a multitude of colors and sheens (including matte and metallics). Perfect for staying on-trend and current with your design environment.
