Pantone Color of the Year

Pantone has once again announced their color of the year. I won’t leave you hanging on – it’s called “Living Coral”.

According to Pantone it is “An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge”.

I understand that to mean that it is a daring color choice, yet not too bold as to be overbearing. Pantone suggests that the color encourages us to put down our phones and turn away from social media for a while to contemplate our authentic and reliable natural world.

It seems that we could all use a little time to take break from our busy, connected lives, and enjoy nature. This time of year, we can dream of the warmth and peacefulness attributed to the colors of coral, but outside it looks quite cold and unforgiving. Yet, we can still enjoy the nature that we are given here in New England. Get out and play in the white, gray and blue colors of the snow. Then, return to your warm, coral colored living room and see what you missed on Facebook.

A while back I enlisted the help of local interior designer, Liz Hause, to say a few words about the Pantone Color Institute and it’s influence on color. Feel free to contact Liz to get her thoughts on color and Pantone.
