Living Coral this Spring!

Living Coral this Spring!

Who else fell in love with Pantone’s Color of the Year? Living Coral. With only days away from welcoming Spring, I couldn’t think of a better time to give this fabulous color a fresh shout out!

Few things bring more joy to a room than a bright pop of a cheerful color. Living Coral is the perfect tone to bring just that. It is energetic and full of positive vibes. As a shade of paint, a piece of fabric or object of decor, Living Coral enlivens anything it touches.

That being said, this color has a “softer edge” and a hint of a more mellow mood. With such an even balance of feelings harmonizing with one another, you get a color that speaks to everyone and every feeling.

What inspired the selection of this lively color?

A color that symbolizes “optimism and joyful pursuits”, there could be no better introduction to a new year than a color such as Living Coral. While pondering my own New Year’s intentions and seeking refreshing design ideas, I went on a pursuit of my own. Here is how I found this jazzy color infused into the things I love most, and here’s what I found…
