The Pantone Color Institute has announced Living Coral as its 2019 Color of the Year and this hue is made for weddings.
The tone is bright, warm and energizing and the experts at the Pantone Color Institute chose the shade not only for its comfort and vibrancy but also for its impact in our ever-important social media world. In Pantone’s official statement revealing the 2019 Color of the Year, they said the following about the spirited coral hue: “Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment. In reaction to the onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly embedding into daily life, we are seeking authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy. Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression. It’s a nurturing colour that appears in our natural surroundings and at the same time, displays a lively presence within social media.”
