Have you started decorating with Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year? While Living Coral may seem too bright and “out there” to try and incorporate into your home decor, when done right it can energize and enliven your space. Based on your comfort with such a bright color, we’ve recommended different ways to integrate living coral into your home!


If you like the new Pantone Color of the Year but are worried that living coral is too bright for your style, consider adding small accents and accessories around the room to give the space a pop of color without being too overwhelming. Whether it’s comfy coral towels or a cute and simple coral window treatment like the shutters below, these accessories will brighten up your room in a subtle yet noticeable way.


For the daring decorator who loves to constantly redecorate or grows tired of one color, adding an adventurous and fun statement piece in living coral can instantly bring your room to life without having to worry about spending too much money. By choosing one piece of furniture to go all out with, it’s helps you avoid burnout with that color. Great statement pieces include a beautifully patterned coral rug or chic velvet chair!
