In 2018, Ultra Violet was the chosen color by the colour authority institute, Pantone, for 2019, the internationally acclaimed institution has named Living Coral as the Pantone color of the year. This warm tone, referenced as #16-1546 Living Coral, is bound to trend in the home decor and hospitality sectors for the upcoming year, including, of course, the bathroom interior. Now, Luxury Bathrooms further explores the characteristics of this welcoming hue.
Vibrant yet mellow, Pantone 16-1546 Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort in our continually shifting environment. In reaction to the increase of digital technology and seeing that social media is more embedded in one’s daily life, this unique color tone emerges a way to introduce immersive experiences that give room for connections and intimacy. Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of Pantone 16-1546 Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity.
Symbolizing one’s innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, Pantone 16-1546 Living Coral embodies the desire for playful expression. Representing the fusion of modern life, Pantone Living Coral is a nurturing colour that appears in one’s natural surroundings and at the same time, displays a lively presence within social media.
“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,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute.
Pantone 16-1546 Living Coral emits the desired, familiar, and energizing aspects of colour found in nature. In its glorious, yet unfortunately more elusive, display beneath the sea, this vivifying and effervescent colour mesmerizes the eye and mind. Furthermore, Pantone Living Coral is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of colour.
For 20 years, Pantone’s Colour of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion, home furnishings, and industrial design, as well as product, packaging, and graphic design.
