Pantone Color of 2019 = Living Coral

“… the arresting beauty we see in nature and the importance of preserving the environment…Think of coral reefs…” Laurie Pressman, vice president of Pantone’s Color Consulting Unit

Get used to it. You’re going to see this hue in clothing, make-up, décor, packaging, appliances…think of living coral as 2019’s “it girl.” Much may  be warm weather apparel, but many are on sale now.
