Here’s how to incorporate this year’s Pantone colour of the year, Living Coral into your home

This year’s Pantone colour of the year, Living Coral, has been described as an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energises and enlivens with a softer edge. Here’s how to incorporate it into your home this year.]

The colour:
Top Durban interior designer Frans Alexander shares his thoughts on this year’s colour of the year: “This is a wonderful colour which can be used to enrich rooms and add warmth. I would encourage people to use different shades and undertones of the colour. It’s is an animating shade of orange with a golden undertone and can be seen as a playful expression of nature, which can add comfort and buoyancy to your space when combined with some eclectic décor.” 

Frans’ tips for introducing the colour into your home:

Décor elements
Source decorative elements such as a scatter cushions, planters or ornaments in coral to add just a pop of colour.

Paint
Paint a wall or piece of furniture using Living Coral. If you’re feeling bold get a professional to spray paint a piece of antique furniture for a statement piece.

Wallpaper
Wallpaper is very on-trend at the moment. A wall mural that’s bold with an oversized print is exactly what every interior needs. Wallpapering all the walls in a room is becoming quite popular and, if you are a bit daring, select a room such as a guest loo to totally ‘go over the top’!

Plants and flowers
For those who prefer a neutral colour palette, adding colour with flowers and plants can make an incredible impact.

.

Rugs
You will find beautiful rugs with bold floral designs that are very fashionable and will make a statement in an otherwise toned-down space. Paint with neutral colours and mix with darker natural tones or lighter tones, depending on the mood of the room.
