Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Colors

Annually, Pantone, the global authority in colors, selects a new “Color of the Year.” Their select team of color experts travels the world to see what colors are up and coming and influential in marketing and design. The chosen color makes a high impact on many industries over the year. In fact, Pantone’s color choice influences many significant companies, and it is incorporated in modern merchandising, marketing, interior design, fashion, and much more. Knowing the “Color of the Year” can allow you to stay ahead in your home’s design as well as incorporate in commercial work. Let’s take a look at 2019’s Color of the Year:

Living Coral

2019’s Color of the Year is Living Coral. Living Coral is an energetic, “buoyant” color that can liven up any area while still complimenting passive, cool tones. It is referred to as a tangy-peach hue with golden undertones that evoke a powerful statement to any application.

Complementary Colors

Living Coral is a stimulating color that can pair well with other accompanying accent colors. As a warm tone, Living Coral pairs well with all of the other warm tones. You can try accompanying Living Coral with a Raspberry Red for a robust and spicy design. You can also move toward the cool tone family and choose a teal, navy, or turquoise to balance the space. While usually warm and cool tones can be paired with Living Coral to neutralize a space, these pairings are full of adventure, fun, and inspire an optimistic atmosphere.

Application

Pantone declared, “Just as coral reefs are a source of sustenance and shelter to sea life, vibrant, yet mellow, Pantone 16-1546, Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.” Applying this to your own space can help you stay up-to-date with modern colors as well as trends. It can be a great application to include in your business’ marketing or commercial space if you own your own business. If not, try incorporating Living Coral in your own home to bring new levels of energy into your own space.

What Colors Should I Use in My Living Room?

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Colors, Design and Decorating

While designing and decorating, you may be wondering “what shade should I paint my living room walls?” When it comes to choosing a hue to paint your living room, it is all about the mood or atmosphere that you are hoping to set for the space. If you want to create a big, bright atmosphere, you will most likely go towards more bright, light colors. On the other hand, if you are interested in a tranquil setting, you may opt for subtle, cool tone colors. With so many different colors to choose from, you are probably having difficulty settling on a hue. To help you find the right shade, we gathered our favorite color schemes and why you should consider choosing them. Let’s take a look!

Neutralize

If you enjoy a more traditional and classic look for a living room, you might want to use a neutral color palette. In a neutral palette, you will embrace colors like black, white, taupe and even grey to create a chic, simple design. You can also warm up the space and add character to a neutral palette by adding wood accents. Using different wood tones in a neutral palette will make the space feel inviting.

Go Moody

Moody and deep hues like navy blue are perfect for creating a stylish oasis. Applying a blue to the walls make the space feel more intimate. This color also makes for a dramatic backdrop with your furniture and wall decorations such as artwork, prints or mirrors. In a living room that uses lots of this deep and dark color, you will want to complete the look with lighter furniture. You may even consider painting the ceiling the same color to create an even more snug atmosphere. It is all about your preference and what mood you are trying to set.

Keep Calm

You can create a super tranquil living room by incorporating colors like greens and light blues and using one of these colors on the walls to create the ultimate soothing feel. You can highlight the look with the upholstery and pillows in muted, neutral tones. Or, when using cool colors in a room, you can complement with darker accessories.

Always a Classic

Of course, you do not have to use a set color in the living room. Painting the walls white allows you to decorate with different patterns and textiles. With white walls, you can also contrast with intense colors like black to create the ultimate effect. The options are truly endless for a white color scheme.

Five Ways to Use Coral in Your Design

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Colors

With Pantone’s recent announcement of 2019’s Color of The Year, what better time than now to focus on how to incorporate coral into your home’s design. Coral is a warm and summery shade that instantly brightens a room, and though often viewed as a seasonal shade, when used correctly, it can complement your home’s design scheme. If you ready to do something unique with your decor, we are going to show you five simple ways you can use this hue in your interior. Let’s take a look!

Window Treatments 

What better way to add a warm touch to a bedroom than with coral colored drapes? You can even select coral window treatments with a decorative pattern for a chic look.

Walls 

You may have never imagined using such a bold color on your walls, but when you balance it out with complementary colors and the right shade of white, you can pull off coral walls without it feeling overwhelmed by the shade. But if you are not ready to paint the entire room Coral, you can try creating a coral-inspired accent wall. Incorporate a few accessories or pieces of furniture in the color to harmonize the look further.

Child’s Bedroom 

Of course, a little girl’s Bedroom is not complete without touches of pink. Try something different by incorporating Coral as the main color. You can even feature a large Coral colored dresser or headboard for a real “pop.” You can also include accents of coral in the bedding, lampshades and other accessories to complete the look.

The Bathroom  

If you are giving your bathroom a makeover, consider adding coral to the design scheme in a bold way. Drenching the exterior of your bathtub in dark pink will definitely make a bold statement and add some old world charm. Use other soft colors like orchid and a muted yellow to complement your coral colored bathtub.

Unexpected Accent 

In a room full of neutrals or a space that uses a specific color scheme, adding a pop of coral in as an accent will make this beautiful color stand out from the rest of the decor. For example, you could use coral draperies that feature bold geometric patterns to accent your room’s focal point: the window.

If you have yet to read about Pantone’s 2019 Color of The Year: Living Coral, we encourage you to do so. Living Coral has many design benefits, and it is said to be the most popular color in the industry this year.
