Vibrant Mellow Living Coral
PANTONE 2019’s selected hue is Living Coral hue, which emits the desired, familiar, and energizing aspects of colour found in nature. In its glorious, yet unfortunately more elusive, display beneath the sea, this vivifying and effervescent colour mesmerizes the 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.

Deep forestry greens that are inspired by (but not directly reflective of) nature will bring the healing, living properties of the outdoors into your home, without feeling overly arboreal.
Mindful Grey Undertones.
People will begin to incorporate calm grey undertones, which are associated with mindful living and smart choices.

Make the tone pop with Bristol blues, black and charcoal greys.
Millennial pink is a colour of the (very recent) past. Now, softer more subtle shades like rosy neutrals and muted blushes, which reflect a spirituality, are being favoured. Unlike millennial pink, these hues are less trendy and more timeless. Love them.
