How to incorporate the 2019 Pantone colour of the year ‘Living Coral’ into your office

How to incorporate the 2019 Pantone colour of the year ‘Living Coral’ into your office

It’s a big step away from the dark and moody Ultra Violet of 2018, but Pantone have added a pop of happiness to many 2019 designs with the refreshing Living Coral as its Colour of the Year.

Here’s what Pantone had to say about its vibrant 2019 choice:

“Colour is an equalizing lens through which we experience our natural and digital realities and this is particularly true for Living Coral. With consumers craving human interaction and social connection, the humanizing and heartening qualities displayed by the convivial Pantone Living Coral hit a responsive chord.”

– Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute

Now, bright orange/peach may not seem a natural addition to your workspace, where calming, non-divisive neutrals often reign.

But applied in the right way, Living Coral can be just the colour your office needs for a renewed lease of life in 2019.

Feature seating

Consider Living Coral for a featured seat in your office reception area. A Living Coral chair will immediately draw the eye of guests, offering an inviting approach to your office and setting a vibrant, positive tone.

Take it to the kitchen

Already, a range of Living Coral-coloured kettles and mixers are being made available by some of the larger retailers. But if a pop of peach doesn’t work with your kitchen palette, consider smaller design nods – such as Pantone mugs. A small and simple way to show that your office is on-trend.

Freshen up your art

If those canvasses are looking a little worn on your office walls, consider a Living Coral upgrade – perfect for any neutral wall.

You’ll find more abstracts and art of all kinds come into market in this trend colour in 2019.
