Color of the Year: Living Coral


2019 is all about PANTONE 16-1546

Color experts PANTONE have names Living Coral, "an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge," the Color of the Year for 2019. 

According to the experts, "PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral emits the desired, familiar, and energizing aspects of color found in nature. In its glorious, yet unfortunately more elusive, display beneath the sea, this vivifying and effervescent color mesmerizes the eye and mind. Lying at the center of our naturally vivid and chromatic ecosystem, PANTONE Living Coral is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of color."
