Remembering that orange isn’t all about the warmth, coral is one of its blends that mixes in undertones of pink, which results in a colour that’s more exotic, playful and even a bit glamorous.
Coral takes your mind to sunsets, tropical reefs, and all things summery. It shares orange’s intrinsic optimism but is more sensual, making it suit the tactile elements of a living room, like sofas, footstools, cushions and even curtain trims.
World-leading colour institute, PANTONE, in fact selected Living Coral as its Colour of the Year for 2019, describing it as: “Living Coral emits the desired, familiar and energising aspects of colour found in nature. In its glorious, yet unfortunately more elusive, display beneath the sea, this vivifying and effervescent colour mesmerises the eye and mind. Lying at the center of our naturally vivid and chromatic ecosystem, PANTONE Living Coral is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of colour.”
