Houses & Homes: How to incorporate Pantone's new colour of the year

Living Coral was announced as the “it” color for 2019 – a pink tinted hue with an orange and golden undertone. Pantone releases a color ever year, making it a trend to follow in design and décor concepts.

Want to stay on trend and incorporate the color into your home? Here are some wise solutions to keep with the theme & appealing to your own taste without having to re-paint all walls of your dining room.


Access coral with accessories throughout your space. Should it be a vase, candle holder or a décor piece. You can easily incorporate it subtly within your own neutral palette.


Rugs and art can be a nice focal point to a room and a great addition. Try finding something that bares lines or highlights hints of the color.


Make a playroom or kids room playful with decals. And what better way to incorporate something memorable of the year into your home – to look back on and remember “This was 2019”. Decals over wallpaper – in my opinion! Easier to put on and easier to remove. Select a decal that can be age friendly, so it can be used for a couple of years and can be changed.

What is fun about these new colours is that it can definitely serve as a platform to explore our creativity and be playful. These minor changes won’t be overbearing when trying to sell your property either!
