Blinding Inspiration: Which Pantone Colour is This Year’s Winner?
As 2019 gets into full swing, the year’s trends are starting to take hold of the nation’s homes, and Pantone’s colour experts have decided on this year’s Colour of The Year: Living Coral.
The sheer depth of research that goes into choosing the colour of the year is something to behold in itself; it’s not a case of arbitrarily picking a shade from a list and giving it a title; for 20 years, the company has analysed trends and patterns to see what colours are influencing the world. This year, Living Coral (PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral, to give it its full name) has been chosen and the team and Kingston Blinds are here to help you find a way to implement it into your home.
Brighten your room
Perhaps the most obvious reason to implement Living Coral into your home is that it brightens any room. Particularly in summer, when the sun is streaming through the windows, the pink/orange hues of the colour will pop out and add to the warmth of the room. It’s not just reserved for summer, though; in the colder, darker days, the colour will provide a welcome contrast to the dreary outdoors, helping to preserve some light and brightness during the typical UK winter.
Perfect Fit Pleated Blind Infusion ASC Coral – made to measure, energy saving fabrics with an easy-fitting mechanism.
Harewood Plain Sun Roller Blind – slightly brighter than Pantone’s colour, it can add a real summer feel to a room.
Splash Tango Vertical Blind – this colour has a more autumnal hue than the pastel feel of Living Coral, but it could work brilliantly on blinds or accessories.
If you’ve already settled on the colour of your walls and window dressings, then perhaps furniture is the best way to instill some Living Coral into your home. Whether it’s a chair or a sofa, adding some bright furniture to replace your existing fixtures can make a statement in your home and give it something of a unique feel.
If you’d rather not purchase a new sofa or armchair, then fear not; a little accessorising can go a long way. From cushions to accents, there’s a plethora of subtle ways to introduce Living Coral into a room. A cushion with some Living Coral detailing, for example, can revitalise a plain chair or sofa. Away from cushions and other furniture accessories, if you’re feeling artsy you could add some hand painted accents to areas that could benefit from it.
2019’s Colour of the Year may be the shade you needed to brighten up your living room, kitchen or bedroom. Whether you opt for one of Kingston Blind’s expertly-made creations in a similar colour, or you decide to accessorise, paint or upholster areas of your home with Living Coral, you’ll be sure to see the benefits of a bright and summery space.
