As a designer and speaker at this year’s GTA Home & Reno Show, I’m pretty excited to present how to work with Pantone’s 2019 Colour Of The Year. I’ll be discussing how to use Living Coral along with my other favourite paint colours and combinations and navigate what’s next in home décor.
Colour Me Coral
Pantone’s Living Coral is a burst of joy and surprisingly versatile. It pairs well with many popular neutrals like beige, taupe and tan as well as the grey tones we have all come to embrace. Announced this past December, it is still only February and we have already seen nearly every “A” list Hollywood star wear the luminous orange pink shade in all it’s glory.
The re-emergence of coral really excites me in all it’s pretty incantations, from the boldest and brightest neon shades to its paler sorbets and desert coral tones. The colour hasn’t been seen in sometime and suddenly we are reminded of coral’s brilliance.
One look at Living Coral and you can’t help but think of “paradise”. Living Coral provides an oasis of beauty and calm for our interiors and literally reminds us of the importance of protecting the environment (think Coral Reef).
Key To Living With Coral
The key to successfully working with coral is to look at it with a sophisticated eye and knowing that a little coral goes a long way. If painting an entire wall or room in coral is not your cup of tea, how about painting a kitchen island, which could be fab. Try bringing the colour into your home with more interchangeable items like gorgeous coral velvet cushions, drapes or even painting a piece of furniture in the shade. The trick is to layer and build a continuity with the colour throughout.
I’ll be sharing more tips and decorating secrets to creating the look for less and of course, talk Living Coral at the GTA Home & Reno Show Monday,February 18th at 1 pm. I hope to see you there. To purchase tickets, click here.
