Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year Makes a Great Paint Color for the Florida Coast
When you’re looking for paint color inspiration, you definitely want to check out all the colorific awesomeness that Pantone has to offer. (If you think Pantone is a fancy Italian sweet bread, think again. That’s panettone…also awesome, but in a carb-y, delicious kind of way.) So what’s Pantone? Pantone, in their words, “provides a universal language of color that enables color-critical decisions.” They offer a proprietary color matching system that designers, printers, and architects love. For the homeowner and design enthusiast, their website is a treasure trove of color information and inspiration.
Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year has us feeling the coastal vibes and wishing for summer. Living Coral seems tailor-made for the Florida Coast. It’s warm coral hue says, “Welcome to the beach. It’s warm and sunny here–why don’t you stay a while?” Living Coral would be a great interior wall color for a coastal home or a peppy exterior accent color for a beach cottage. And now that Pantone has crowned it the color of the year, you’re sure to see warm coral hues popping all over the design scene.
