Pan­tone colour of the year

Costa Levante News - - HOME IMPROVEMENTS -

With Liv­ing Coral set to make waves across decor trends through­out 2019, Sam WylieHar­ris re­veals the sunny-hued finds to shop now.

If you're hanker­ing after some win­ter sun and des­per­ate to get your glow on with­out hav­ing to leave home, Pan­tone's new Colour of the Year - Liv­ing Coral - could be the next best thing to bask­ing in some nat­u­ral warmth.

A gor­geously rich coral hue with a golden un­der­tone, we can't think of a bet­ter way to wel­come in 2019 than by bright­en­ing up the home with this happy, sunny shade.

Every year, de­sign com­pany Pan­tone look at the lat­est trends in­flu­enc­ing our lives, be­fore re­veal­ing the shade tak­ing top spot.

The colour ex­perts cite Liv­ing Coral as a re­lease from dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy and so­cial me­dia, and a nod of recog­ni­tion to­wards our in­creas­ing con­cern over en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues, the en­er­gis­ing as­pects of colour found in na­ture, and our de­sire for play­ful ex­pres­sion. All sounds good to us.

To cel­e­brate ev­ery­thing coral with­out hav­ing to be 'sur la plage', we've rounded up the lat­est musthave de­cos and home­wares in­spired by 2019's hottest shade... 1. MW by Matthew Wil­liamson Mon­key Resin Ta­ble Light

At­ten­tion-seek­ing and showy, if you can't re­sist a lit­tle bit of mon­key busi­ness and thoughts of far-flung places, this de­signer lamp­shade will steal the spot­light very nicely. 2. Wis­te­ria in Coral Flo­ral Wall­pa­per Woody wis­te­ria trees may charm us with their vi­o­let flow­ers, but why set­tle for the usual pur­ple pe­tals when you can adorn the walls in climb­ing coral? 3. Cole & Son Seafern Wall­pa­per - Coral 107/2011 Or for some­thing closer to the real deal, this clas­sic de­sign in­spired by botan­i­cal prints from the late 1700s delves be­neath the sea to il­lus­trate liv­ing species of coral (although more al­lu­sive), such as Staghorn and Ivory Tree. 4. Em­broi­dered Vel­vet Palm Tree Cush­ion To evoke mem­o­ries of trop­i­cal hol­i­days and palm-fringed beaches, this luxe vel­vet cush­ion with its gold palm tree mo­tif has a time­less al­lure. 5. Unity Cane Wall Mir­ror To mir­ror our fas­ci­na­tion with tribal art, this brass frame has been wrapped in wo­ven red raf­fia in­spired by West African cel­e­bra­tory masks. To make a real state­ment, hang one ei­ther side of a dresser or wide chest of draw­ers. 6. Orange Coral Ta­ble Lamp with Linen Shade

An at­trac­tive ob­jet d'art you'd ex­pect to see in a swank re­treat by the sea, the ex­otic coral base and pris­tine white shade channels beauty while also be­ing func­tional. Style it with some col­lectible seashells for max­i­mum im­pact. 7. Crum­ble Medium 2 Seater Sofa

Noth­ing says up-to-the-minute treat like a brand new sofa. Es­pe­cially when it's in state­ment 'look at me, don't dare spill any­thing on me' re­splen­dent red coral. In­sta­gram-wor­thy for sure, es­pe­cially with Valen­tine's Day wink­ing at us from around the cor­ner.

8. Coral Tealight Hold­ers

With a flicker of can­dle­light to en­hance the tiny bril­liant beads in­spired by un­der­wa­ter plant life and colour­ful coral reefs, these quirky tealight hold­ers are worth a closer look. Beaded 9. Coral Mon­go­lian Round Cush­ion

Friv­o­lous and fun, no need to in­vest in some­thing spenny if you just fancy dip­ping your toe into the sun-kissed sand with a cou­ple of fun pom-pom scat­ter cush­ions. 10. Clarissa Hulse Filix Bed Linen - Coral Om­bre, Lamb­swool Throw

Rise and shine... Noth­ing spells sassy like a burst of burnt orange, daz­zling coral and a splash of le­mony yel­low in a bright sun­rise, om­bre ef­fect. En­riched with fab­u­lous feather fern mo­tifs and styled with a lux­u­ri­ous, fringed throw, these sateen sheets are a wakeup call to won­der­ful­ness. 11. Bi­tossi Hour­glass Sand Timer

And if you want to steel an ex­tra hour in bed, this curved hour­glass timer should bring you that much closer to feel­ing (and dream­ing) about the sand be­tween your toes. 12. Sun and Moon Printed Bed Set; No­mad Printed Bed Set; Multi Stripe Bed Set; Mate­lasse Throw; Block Stripe Ce­ramic Vase

And for a dreamy al­ter­na­tive that's a lit­tle less loud but just as ap­peal­ing, this pretty sun and moon print is beau­ti­fully il­lus­trated. 13. Cosmo Painterly Bud Vase

This bowl-shaped vase adds a fresh di­men­sion to the colour by pick­ing up the golden ac­cents and adding in­ter­est with some conch pearly pink and a wash of peb­ble stone grey. 14. Oiva Toikka Bird by Toikka Red Car­di­nal

A flight of fancy - but if you don't have to penny-pinch, this strik­ing song­bird makes a last­ing im­pres­sion. Ac­cord­ing to mythol­ogy, car­di­nals are spir­i­tual mes­sen­gers and a sight­ing brings good for­tune, mak­ing this a deco 'defo' worth the out­lay. 15. Neon Bas­ket

If one of your new year res­o­lu­tions is to have a tidy up and clear the decks, we love this boho-style beach bas­ket rem­i­nis­cent of lazy, hazy sum­mer days. Much more cre­ative than stack­ing your mag­a­zines and bits 'n' bobs in a bor­ing old stor­age box. Coral Tassel
