TREND ALERT: Pantone's Colour of the Year 2019, Living Coral

12 Dec 2018

Wedding inspiration incorporating Pantone's Colour of the Year 2019, Living Coral

The Pantone 2019 Colour of the Year has been revealed as Living Coral. Bold and bright, the warm and energising colour evokes connotations of tropical climates, undiscovered reefs and breath-taking sunsets.

Pantone describes Living Coral as: "An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energises and enlivens with a softer edge. PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral emits the desired, familiar, and energising aspects of colour found in nature. In its glorious, yet unfortunately more elusive, display beneath the sea, this vivifying and effervescent colour mesmerises the eye and mind. Lying at the centre of our naturally vivid and chromatic ecosystem, PANTONE Living Coral is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of colour."

With a nod towards the environment, Living Coral is also a symbol of the vulnerability of our natural world at the hands of humankind. It reminds us to take greater care of our ecosystems and in turn, preserve nature in its most beautiful form. 

While typically considered a summer colour, Living Coral can be used during any wedding season. Think of complementing tones such as vibrant pinks, deep navy and more demure whites and creams which will really make the colour 'pop'. Intersperse in various elements - from the bouquet and buttonholes to the bride's shoes and wedding make-up (a coral lip can be beautifully adapted to any skin tone). 

A Living Coral colour scheme will breathe life, love and vibrancy into a wedding look and will also make for stunning photo opportunities. Take a look at these variations on a coral colour scheme and be inspired by Pantone's Colour of the Year 2019...
