Happy New Year (can we still say that?)! We hope you had a wonderful time over the festive season celebrating with friends and family. We literally ate our body weight in cheese, gorged on Christmas TV and now we are ready for an exciting 2019.
This Month We Are . . .
WATCHING: ‘Luther’ (hello Idris!) (…from behind a cushion) and Tidying Up with Marie Kondo (I read her first book, did (almost) everything she recommended and kept local charity shops in business for at least a year 😉
New Year, New Hue
The Pantone Institute have announced The Pantone of the Year 2019 as Living Coral chosen for its “animating and life-affirming” hue which “energizes and enlivens with a softer edge,” according to the official site.
To us, Living Coral feels like that fresh, vibrant shade that we’re all looking for to kick off the new year, especially when we’re trying to escape from the cold dreariness of winter. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that it works well in your home, wardrobe and make-up bag!
Live with Living Coral
Take inspiration from Sweden’s Artilleriet Store and make coral cozy and luxe. Super snuggly.
Or make it happy and bright like this coral dining room with it’s vintage finds.
For the brave fashionistas how stunning are these colours and textures together?
Love the textures and colours in this bakery. Who would have thought pink grout could be to die for?!
If a large expanse of coral packs too much of a punch for you, take a more subtle approach by adding accents with accessories, or introduce colour via a picture wall like this gallery in the stunning home Tanja Gottharsden.
Or take a tonal approach and use a stack of cushions in complementary shades.
This shade also works well mixed with other unexpected colour ways like this rich jewel emerald with just a pop of coral.
If you want something a little less committal and maybe at a more palatable price point, go crazy with florals, we love these colourful beautiful creations by @tulipinadesign
Or perhaps paint the inside of one of your internal doors for a happy little surprise.
Have a wonderful January lovelies, here’s to keeping resolutions and embracing colour!
