5 Ways to use Pantone’s Color of the Year

For the past 20 years, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced interior design, fashion and other creative industries. This year’s color is called Living Coral, an orange-pink hue that symbolizes optimism and lightheartedness.

Try one of these ideas for using Living Coral in your home:

Paint your front door. Experts say a colorful door boosts curb appeal, plus it’s a chic, inviting way to welcome your friends and family.

Style a nursery. Bright but calming, Living Coral makes a cheery addition to a nursery. Try pairing it with light pink, deep blue or eucalyptus green.

Use it as an accent. Energize your living room with a throw blanket or a few decorative pillows, or make your entryway pop with a new piece of art.

Warm up the kitchen. The director of design at Master Brand Cabinets says this hue “breathes life” into kitchens. Try painting the kitchen island, an accent wall or the inside of glass-front cabinetry in Living Coral.

Go bold. Living Coral can be the “star of the room,” says House Beautiful. Try painting built-in shelves, or make a coral couch or chair the focal point. Tone it down by adding neutral colors and pieces made of wood, brass or marble.
