Pantone Color Of The Year 2019: Lively Coral
We’re smiling from ear to ear ’cause the Pantone Color of the Year 2019, is a ridiculously gorgeous shade of pinky-orange. Pantone describes it as an “animating and life-affirming shade of orange with a golden undertone”.
Friends, meet Lively Coral.
This hue makes us want to dive right into the ocean and travel through the reef. It brings to mind tropical sunsets, joyful flamingos and blood orange mimosas. Their choice to turn to nature is a friendly-reminder to encourage optimism and joyful pursuits *your cue to put down the phone*. The peachy-and-happy colour also aims to welcome and encourage lighthearted activity by seeking energy from nature, “just as coral reefs are a source of sustenance and shelter to sea life”.
