Get Inspired by Pantone’s Color of the Year

If you haven’t yet heard, Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year is Living Coral and we love the idea of brightening up our spaces with it.

Parasol Shades in Coral
Parasol Shades in a coral hue bring warmth to a bright white space.

Woven Wood Shades with Coral Accents
Manh Truc Woven Wood Roman Shades with Coral Festoon Overlays add classic elegance.

But let’s face it, adding bright colors into your design scheme can be scary. 

While Living Coral may seem like an overly-bold color, its intention is to be reminiscent of a natural environment like the coral reef, engaging and warm, yet energizing.

It’s easy to create the same effect in your living areas by bringing in the right interior fashions. Get creative and try coral in small accents paired with soft green or blue complementary hues or try large focal pieces such as coral window shades or a fresh coat of paint. Pair these large swatches of color with subdued natural wood tones, or even accent metallics and feel your home buzz with a calming energy. Pantone’s color of the year has lasting effects on everything from fashion, to make-up, accessories, furniture and with some guidance, your home’s interior design.

Incorporate a fresh look with a lasting effect in your home
