The colour experts at Pantone have announced their top colour choice for 2019 and it’s the beautifully fresh and romantic Living Coral. We’ve been head over heels for coral wedding decorations and details for a long time and now, this shade is our new favourite. We’ve gathered together our favourite Living Coral wedding ideas for you so that you can include this gorgeous colour in your own wedding.
So, what’s so special about Living Coral? Pantone themselves say that the shade is “an animated and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energises and enlivens with a softer edge” and that sounds perfect for weddings. It’s a bright-but-elegant colour and it’s perfect for any season. Team Living Coral with yellows and pinks or greens and whites in spring and summer or opt for blue/grey additions if you’d prefer a slightly moodier palette. This adaptable colour even works with bold reds and deep blacks in winter so you can be as adventurous with your colour scheme as you like!
