5 Ways to Decorate with the Color of the Year

There’s so much to be excited about in 2019, including Pantone’s recent announcement of Living Coral as Color of the Year. We can’t think of a better reason to refresh your décor with this stimulating and wholesome color. Check out our top five ways to decorate with Pantone’s Color of the Year:

Bright and Bold: Living Coral is not a muted color. Instead, it’s big, bright and bold – not a color to shy away from. If you are ready to give Living Coral a try in your home, Elle Décor recommends using the color to paint a whole room such as an entryway or bathroom. Don’t want to go too bold? Try using it to paint an accent wall along with coordinating wallpaper.

Revitalize Furniture: It can be tempting to buy all new furniture when redecorating your home. But why not revive the furniture you already have? Using a fresh coat of chalk paint on a great piece of accent furniture makes decorating with Living Coral a breeze. Noted by The Cottage Market, repainting a piece of furniture is a great way to add a pop of color to any room.

Pillows, Pillows, Pillows: Looking for a super easy and practical way to decorate with Living Coral? Betters Homes & Gardens says throw pillows are the answer! Throw pillows can easily be added to any room in your apartment or home. If you want to use the pillows you already have, simply add new pillow covers in Living Coral!

Lively Homewares: If you’re not a fan of painting and want to go beyond decorating with pillows, there are so many other homewares you can use! The Apartment Guide suggests easily brightening up a living room or bedroom with a coral lamp, adding elegance with a rug, or pepping up your kitchen with coral glassware. The possibilities are endless!

Complementary Colors: How do you introduce Living Coral to the existing color palette in your apartment or home? There are a variety of complementary colors to use with Living Coral! We personally love pairing it with gray. House Beautiful recommends pairing it with shades of blue to make the coral pop.

We believe it’s how you live that matters and love sharing the latest décor inspirations for your home or apartment. We hope these tips for decorating with Living Coral energize and enliven your living spaces all year long.
