Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2019, Living Coral, is a reflection of the current socio-cultural trends and environmental concerns. Picked from the life affirming and mesmerizing colours found in nature, Living Coral seeks to put the emphasis back on immersive, intimate experiences and connections at a time of global technological disruption. Its specks of shimmering gold atop peach-orange hues speak of bejewelled coral reefs in elusive ocean bottoms.
Here is how you can incorporate the vivid and vibrant colour to lighten up your home.
Paint ‘em walls
The coral wall paint adds warmth and light to this otherwise monotonous living space. It also highlights and accentuates the wall fixtures and paintings.
If you don’t want to go through the trouble of painting your walls pink and beige, go subtle and choose coral themed rugs, throw pillows and cushions, complemented by earthen tones, for a sophisticated look.
This irreverently coral coloured sofa grabs our eyes and energizes the living room, while showing us it is meant for fun and intimate hangouts. Interior decorators in Chennai will be able to help you use this dynamic colour in just the right manner.
Get the door
Get bold and expressive by painting your front door orange-pink. Make a political statement that you stand for environmental conservation. The personal is political after all.
Cozy up your bedroom
With artfully layered sensuous shades of pink, beige, purple and brown, this bedroom succeeds in showing us what coral is all about – intimacy.
Make your kids’ space fun
The light coral and pastel hues of the wall designs, dresser and throw pillows create a mood that is both lively and peaceful, and also make the room look spacious.
Go retro in the kitchen
Compliment your coral kitchen cabinets or islands with copper and brass kitchen wares to stand out and shine like this one here.
Clearly, the possibilities are endless with this colour. It can be striking or subtle, fun or sensual, all at the same time. Let it inspire your modular kitchen in Chennai, bedroom, or even living room. Your home sure won’t go unnoticed!
