Engaging and welcoming, Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2019, Living Coral, is an uplifting shade inspired by underwater reefs. Softer and creamier than a true orange, sprinkle this welcoming shade throughout your interior with art, paint, soft furnishings and homewares. Too bold for you? Dial it down with its terracotta clay, deep blush and peach cousins.
Here are three easy ways to use blush pink and coral to create a sense of calm in your home as an antidote to your busy life.
Start with a soothing tone of blush on your walls and team this with an off-white sofa and beige carpet.
Glam it up
Add hints of brass or gold, like a side table or open shelving, for grown-up glamour with restraint.
Cool it down
Add neutral grey or black, which will ground the scheme. Or include touches of greens and watery blues – minty or mossy greens or deep sea blue and tropical isle turquoise – to freshen the scheme.
