Should Pantone’s Colour Of The Year be something that captures the zeitgeist, or something that we need next? Pantone 16-1546 (or Living Coral as it’s known in human language), is possibly both.
Pantone says it was chosen for its prevalence in social media, now core to our daily lives, but also the natural vibrancy of this hue in nature. It’s a positive tone that represents connection, and also has a sense of hope. We don’t really mind where the inspiration came from, but after the subtle tones of the last Dulux Colour Of The Year we’re happy to see some positive and energetic vibes coming from this choice. We’ve rounded up some great ways to use it at your windows, if you find it’s inspired you to open your home to Living Coral.
Dark walls are still very fashionable, and this coral Pirouette window covering lifts this scheme with a much need pop of energy.
This robust colour is great for practical spaces, as it can hold its own amongst the clutter of daily life. These roller blinds are as easy to operate as they are to enjoy.
Coral changes light into something warming and inspiring as it filters. These Roman Blinds are ideal for lifting the mood of a north-facing room.
Coral can feel subtle as well as vivid. Here it adds some extra interest with the play of the tree’s boughs against a plain Duette structure.
Who says nurseries need to be pastel? This gender-neutral room adds some fun and vibrant energy with acid yellow partnered with a coral window covering. The woodland paper brings in the wonders of nature for a softer, but still cool, touch.
