How to Use Pantone's Color of the Year at Home

These interiors will leave you dreaming of all things coral.

It's official: Pantone has named Living Coral the color of 2019. According to Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone's color institute executive, "It expresses warmth, that kind of harmony, human interaction and social connection that we're looking for. I think that's something so inherent in the human mind. It pulls you in, gathers you in, in such a warm and inviting way that it opens up an avenue to positive thoughts, not negative. That, we felt, was a really vital part of expressing the color of the year with living coral." Keep your eyes peeled for this cheerful shade of orangey-pink because you're going to start seeing it everywhere.

Read on for our favorite ways to use coral at home in 2019.

Coral is one of those colors that looks absolutely gorgeous when used as an ultra high-gloss wall finish. The aptly-named Coral Room at The Bloomsbury Hotel in London, designed by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, features beautiful coral walls paired with ocean-colored velvet, one of our favorite combinations.

It's a common misconception that a soothing space should be devoid of color. You can create a peaceful bathroom with a monochromatic color story like this one. The coral-colored hexagonal tiles and matching paint color work together to create a calm and clean effect.

Since the 16th century, collectors have been showcasing corals as objets d'art. Incorporate a coral collection on top of a console or behind glass cabinet doors for a marvelous collected look.

Coral Punctuation 

Use coral to add a pop of color to any space! Whether you choose to make a statement with upholstered furniture or accent accessories, a surprise hit of this color will be most impactful if it's dotted throughout the room. A throw pillow is always a great place to start.

The White Teddy Fabric You're Seeing Everywhere

You've seen this white, furry fabric all over the place. But what is it, and where did it come from?

Why do we crave tactile, textured, and gorgeous materials like bouclé? At The Inside, we credit Philip Arctander and his Clam Chair produced in the 1940s by Nordisk Staal & Møbel Central in Denmark. Upholstered in curly sheepskin, the chair lit a design fire and left enthusiasts chasing after the fuzzy fabric.
