There are so many colors to choose from when you decide to repaint your home and it can be daunting when trying to decide what color works best for your style. Color can set a tone, enhance mood, and make a house a home. Luckily, the Pantone Color Institute is here to help you with a little inspiration. Each year, the Pantone Color Institute names a Color of the Year, which is predicted by influences such as the entertainment industry and areas of design and will be on trend in the months to come. For ideas on ways to add this year’s color to your home, speak with a trained specialist at Window Treats, Inc serving Red Bank, NJ and surrounding areas. We’ll be happy to help you make a color change.
The Color of the Year Process
To arrive at the selection each year, Pantone’s color experts at the Pantone Color Institute comb the world looking for new color inspirations. This may include new artists, fashion, all areas of design, and popular travel destinations, as well as new lifestyles and socio-economic conditions. Influences may also stem from new materials, textures, technologies, and effects that impact color. “Color is an equalizing lens through which we experience our natural and digital realities,” noted Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
Energize your Home with the 2019 Color of the Year
For the past 20 years, the Pantone Color of the Year has inspired manufacturers in industries such as:
- home furnishings
- window coverings
- industrial design
Through things like trend forecasts and color psychology, the Pantone Color Institute helps global brands design products that call on the power and emotion of color. Last year’s Color of the Year was bold Ultra Violet. For 2019, it is PANTONE Living Coral, which has a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.
Encourage Lightheartedness in your Home
Effervescent, yet mellow, Living Coral grips us with warmth and peacefulness to provide relief in a continually shifting environment. This soothing color encourages lighthearted activity, our need for optimism, and our desire for playful expression. As Pantone notes, Living Coral “is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of color.”
The Many Ways to Use Living Coral in Home Décor
In your home, consider using Living Coral on your walls, window coverings, custom bedding, accent pieces, or even kitchen gadgets and appliances to create a tranquil retreat and more. Consider complementary colors to offset the specific coral hue and to create a complete ambiance.
- For example, you could get decorative throw pillows in aqua and throws in seafoam.
- Or add artwork, vases, or table lamps in one of the colors to bring out a pop.
