The cats finally out of the bag!
Living Coral 16-1546 has been named as Pantone Colour of the Year 2019. This bright and cheerful colour evokes positive energy and warmth with a playful presence. This month we look into the inspiration behind this colour, from nature to fashion and how you can incorporate it into your interior in the New Year.
This electric tone can be tailored to your needs and comes in a variety of tones – blush, blossom, melon, saffron and peach to name a few. Harmonizing with neutral hues and pairing perfectly with colours like orange and ochre, Living Coral is extremely versatile and full of life.

Bold and unapologetic, Living Coral can be found all around us from natures design to our digital realities. Feathers, scales, leaves, flowers, sea-life and sunsets – this cornucopia of colour offers the inspiration for fabrics and interiors everywhere. Corals have been featured in runway fashion for some time, slowly filtering into our homes and interiors. Warwick is no exception with a bountiful selection or prints and weaves in which coral takes centre stage with its gorgeous golden undertone and subtle, soft edge.

Coral is perfect for injecting energy and contrast to a space. From light and soft to deep and vibrant, go big and bold by upholstering an entire couch or chair in a textured plain. From dry-looks, natural fibres and plush velvets, there is a quality for all occasions depending on your lifestyle and desired depth of colour. If subtle is more your thing, our recent trip to #LDF2018 displayed coral colours in everything from paint, rugs, drapery, hardwood furniture and soft furnishings like cushions, ottomans and lampshades. Stepping outside comfort zones, this colour evolution is exciting and important as is sees classic ‘millennial pink’ slowly phasing out and blush tones becoming universal. Coral can also work back with rust, soft blues and a variety of greens to create a myriad of different looks. Experimenting with these tones, patterns and coordinating colours you can easily compile the perfect palette to create or transform your own unique and stylish setting.
