Colour of the year: Living Coral

The universal colour system Pantone has announced Living Coral (Pantone 16-1546) as its colour of the year for 2019.

A warm, vibrant orange tone that’s been selected to “appeal to our need for a return to nature, but embracing the colours of coral reefs and under the sea, while celebrating the beauty of the parts of the natural world we don’t often get to see,” explained Pantone. “Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity.”
