2019’s Colour

This year’s colour is Living Coral Pantone 16-1546. Living Coral although may seem more pink in nature, Pantone describes Living Coral as “an animated, life-affirming shade of orange, with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.”Coral evokes bright and positive energy. It brings a smile to people’s faces for no particular reason except for just being what it is; a pleasant cheerful colour to be around. So why not add it into your interior design.

Adding into your home

There are several different variants of the colour coral just like the real corals out in the oceans. The most common shade is orange and pink tones and not as common is coral red. Loving Coral welcomes and encourages light-hearted activity, symbolising the innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits and embodies our desire for playful expression. Adding coral into your interiors welcomes positive energy and making your home feel more joyous, buoyant and vibrant area. The great thing about coral is it can easily stand alone but can also pair quite well with other colour combinations such as blues, greens, greys and even yellows.

As it naturally brightens and freshens up a space it is a great option to add it to your interiors. It can really impact on the way you feel in your home, whether it be an accent colour decorated with soft furnishings, flowers, lamps, furniture et cetera, or if you’re feeling bold you could even paint your walls with a coral feature wall or add it to your window dressings like with shutters. We are usually able to match most paints for some of our shutter materials, you just need to provide us with a swatch of your colour, and it can be matched using the electronic eye.

The Pantone Colour of the Year focuses on the consumers’ needs and trends. They reflect our colour palettes of choice, they mould our pathways for annual style ideas and trends and play with our desires. This colour will most likely dominate our social media screens and interiors for the next 10 months, so join the rest of us and up style your home with Living Coral. And of course, if you are wanting to add some colour to your windows, our shutters are a great solution. For some added inspiration have a browse through our shutter styles and lifestyle gallery.

I love my new blinds. They are high quality, look beautiful and were at the most competitive price. The fitters were also very polite and efficient.

Plantation shutters visited my flat 20 January 2022 to measure, discuss slat size and material, and give me a free estimate which I was happy with.
