Last updated on: 2018


It’s that time of year again. Every year in early December, Pantone reveals the upcoming Color of the Year that leads as an inspiration and reflection of what’s happening in multiple industries, including fashion, beauty, interior design and more. The color must reflect what’s trending across these industries, but also be relevant to social and cultural themes.

What is the Pantone Color of the Year for 2019?

The 2019 Color of the Year is… Living Coral!

Pantone describes Living Coral as “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge”.

The vibrant, yet mellow hue was chosen in reaction to social media and other digital technologies increasingly becoming a part of our daily lives to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment. As we continue to seek authentic, immersive experience that enable connection and intimacy, Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity and embodies our desire for playful expression. Living Coral is a true representation of the fusion of modern life the color appears in our natural surroundings, while simultaneously displays a lively presence within social media.
