Drumroll please………..Pantone has selected “Living Coral” as their Color of the Year for 2019. Living Coral is a warm palette, compared to last year’s “Ultra Violet.” I am definitely feeling the warm nautic vibes from this color. I also love it because it’s so fresh and airy.

Living Coral seems like the perfect color to possibly pull into your home for a spring refresh [insert potential decorating plotting here! LOL]. When I think of pairing coral with complimentary colors, I think of cool blues and greens.


This posh coral and grey bedroom proves that Living Coral doesn’t have to be stereotyped as too feminine in terms of design.

Pantone also says that pairing Living Coral with vibrant teals and yellows creates a joyful tropical space in your home.

But, if you’re not afraid of going all out with bold colors like Living Coral, designer Jamie Herzlinger does a fantastic job with this chinoiserie coral dining room, mixing it with neutral beige, black and white tones.

I’ve even incorporated a little coral into my guest room, with this beautiful print by Elizabeth Mayville. You can also use other home decor accessories, like these old books I have in my collection as well.
