Decorating with Living Coral

Local finds to energize spaces with Pantone’s Color of the Year


For two decades, Pantone, the company primarily known for its color matching system, identifies a Color of the Year. This annually anticipated announcement influences decision-making in industries from packaging to fashion, but is also just plain fun for design geeks. In 2019, that color is Living Coral (PANTONE 16-1546), described by the company as “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.” While coral found in the Ocean State is often overlooked for its stony color, its existence alone is reason enough to embrace its brighter tropical cousin.
