I always look forward to Pantone’s announcement for Color of the Year. For 2019, they chose Living Coral! What great timing, too, as springtime will be upon us in the next three or four months. In fact, there have been days in December and January that have felt unusually springy. Not only is this color lovely to look at, but it will be really fun to wear and carry on your person. So without further ado, here are some of my Living Coral picks for 2019!

Vibrant, yet mellow [Living Coral] embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment. In reaction to the onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly embedding into daily life, we are seeking authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy. Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of [Living Coral] welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, [Living Coral] embodies our desire for playful expression.
