Pantone's 2019 color of the year is here, and it's Living Coral! 馃悹 馃А

According to the color experts over at Pantone, Living Coral is "an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression". This "vibrant but mellow" hue is the perfect way to punch up your color palette, and add a playful touch to your decor!

There are so many different directions you can go with Living Coral in your color palette! You can combine coral with seafoam or aqua hues or pair with blush pinks and champagnes, you can accent the coral with a dark navy or go for a sunset-inspired palette with coral, shades of gray, and a dusky purple!

What do you think of this year's color choice? Will you have a touch of "Living Coral" in your wedding color palette?

    I love it! Reminds me of the roses my husband bought me last week since I was stressed at work.

    I love wearing coral during the spring! That is my go-to color! However, it is not one of our wedding colors.

    This is such a beautiful color. Since I am sewing my own gown, I want to try and find fabric that incorporates this color! I think it would be as flattering, if not more so, than the blush color I originally looked at. Thanks for posting!!!

    Oh my gosh, Melissa! It is beyond amazing that you are sewing your own gown! I think that color would look amazing to incorporate, especially for an April wedding!

    I was actually going to have my BM dresses this color and then my flowers were going to be some hue of purple.

    My colors are a steel/dusty blue and peach, which is kinda close to the coral, so I'm not too far off!

    Thank you! I'm not a girly girl and pink isn't near my favorite color so I wanted to do something simple, feminine without the pink tones.

    So I've been searching and I think we're going to try and use pops of coral with copper, peach, ivory and pinks!
