3 Vibrant Ways to Incorporate the 2019 Color of the Year in Your Home

PANTONE® recently made a highly-anticipated announcement that the 2019 Color of the Year is “Living Coral”; also known as 16-1546. This particular hue carries a cheerful buzz in its warm, peachy personality and energetic golden undertones. We at Luxe Home are excited to see “Living Coral” make a splash in a multitude of different ways this next year. Our designers have scoped some dazzling options to inspire you to embrace vibrant and feminine coral hues in your home – pinks, oranges and everything in between. Get brainstorming!

Tile Patterns

(This pale coral fish scale tile is called “Stilbite” from Fireclay Tile).

Tile has the power to capture and transform any space to reflect a creativity that’s entirely your own. With a spellbinding color like coral, you can go all-out and have it take over the room’s aesthetic, or feature it in subtle and unexpected places.

(This friendly hand-painted tile pattern is Tabarka Studio’s MEDITERRANEAN 25, 4 1/8″ x 4 1/8″ Oxford and Coral on Off White).

If committing to a bold color isn’t your thing, you can choose a tile pattern with graceful details that gently highlight it instead. Tabarka Studio’s custom handcrafted adobe tile patterns are truly one-of-a-kind and bring delightful, wordly wonder to any home they’re placed in.

Light it Up!

(Visual Comfort & Co.’s – KS 5144CRL/G – Cavanagh Small Lantern in Coral and Guild).

Lighting fixtures can do more than simply illuminate a space – they have the ability to bring a whole room to life! Coral and peachy-pink are fantastic options for bringing some whimsy to a kid’s room, kitchen or home office.

(Hudson Valley Lighting’s Kiki H251701L-AGB/PK).

The coral pink pendant above from Hudson Valley’s Mitzi line can bring a retro twist to your space. Bright colors colliding with industrial features create a 1950’s flare that we’re happy to see come back in fashion!

Sink or Swim

(Whyte and Company’s Lucy sink in “Coral”).

Coral reminds us of water – think awe-inspiring tropical reefs teeming with rainbow colored fish –  and so it’s natural that a coral tone for a sink or bathtub seems so fitting! A creative sink basin is a fantastic option to draw the eye in a space that draws a lot of traffic. How delightful would this sink look in a wet bar or even a kid’s bathroom?

(The Regency 72”x31” soaking tub from Cheviot with a white interior and custom color exterior).

Although somewhat darker than PANTONE®‘s color of the year, this tub is a showstopper and has a place on the coral spectrum! This freestanding bathtub boasts a dreamy vintage aesthetic with its elegant, clawed feet and exposed filler and faucet. The best part about this tub from Cheviot is that you can design it with a custom color that’s all your own!

The Possibilities are Endless!

(Quadro Red tile pattern from Artistic Tile).

With a color as bold and powerful as coral, you can incorporate it in your home in any which way you can imagine. Whether it’ll take center stage or simply be an understated note will be up to you – the sky’s the limit, so start daydreaming!
