Another year is almost over, and it is time for Pantone to announce the colour of the year 2019: PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral. This animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone energizes and enlivens with a softer edge, and is in my mind a great way to add subtle colour in a Nordic style home. The colour has quite a few hues, so perfect for mixing and matching.
Every year since I started the blog I have been sharing my selection of Scandinavian design in the selected colour. Here is a selection of items to inspire anyone wanting to add touches of Living Coral to their home. What do you think? Will you be incorporating it into your interior?
