Pantone’s Colour of the Year, Living Coral, is making waves in fashion and design so it’s no wonder that it’s the latest trend to take hold in the home.
Coral is an animated and optimistic shade, adding a sense of warmth and joy to any room in the house. The playful shade encourages us to find intimacy in our environments, while our lives become increasingly busy with social media and technology. With the name playing into life under the sea, the colour evokes wonder and enchantment.
To brighten up your home with this on-trend hue, opt for Valspar shade ‘Flamboyant Flamingo’. Whether you’re looking to create a statement feature wall, decorate an entire room or add a pop of colour through furniture, this shade has the power liven up and transform dull living spaces. Pair with complimentary cream colours such as ‘Ode to Joy’ or ‘Sahara Dust’ or goes bolder with orange tones like ‘Sunset in Provence’, to inject some much-needed warmth for the new year.
