Introducing \"Living Coral\"

Introducing "Living Coral"Pantone

It's making us long for summer already.

The experts at Pantone Color Institute have had their say - it's 2019, and we are declaring our love for Living Coral. 

The "playful" shade apparently represents our "innate need for optimism" - and after the year that was, we think they hit the nail on the head with that assumption. 

The tropical orange - or as Pantone puts it, "an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge" - could indeed challenge the world's longstanding obsession with millennial pink.
