* Pantone has declared living coral 2019’s signature shade
* The color is seen as bright and optimistic
* We’ve rounded up six small ways to weave it into your life
Pantone is the company behind the revolutionary Pantone Color Matching System which is used in industries across the board. The company recently declared living coral the color of 2019. This vibrant blend of pink and orange was described by the company as “life-affirming” and “sociable and spirited.” In contrast to their color of 2018, a dark and dramatic shade of violet, 2019’s color has been selected for its lighthearted optimism. Expect to see it pop up everywhere in 2019, from furniture show rooms to runways, and stock up on hot coral items before the year ends. From nail polish to record players, Spy has rounded up six different ways you can incorporate the hue into your life.
