2019 Colour of the year

"Living it coral"

Bonjour to you!

Pantone has announced the colour of the year and it’s goodbye Ultra Violet, hello Living Coral, otherwise known as 16-1546

“An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge”

“Living Coral emits the desired, familiar and energising aspects of colour found in nature. In its glorious, yet unfortunately more elusive, display beneath the sea, this vivifying and effervescent colour mesmerises the eye and mind. Lying at the center of our naturally vivid and chromatic ecosystem, PANTONE Living Coral is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of colour.”

Pantone and its colour of the year have been, for the past 2 decades, influencing trends and mood in multiple industries, including fashion.

The colour of the year emerges from an analysis of trends, mood, socio-economic conditions, lifestyle shifts, influences colours have on the world

Living Coral got me all creative and inspired…


Let’s go fabric shopping!

I went fabric shopping for you and here is what I have found online.


Sew over it – Chiffon Saigon Meadow which is on sale at the moment £6.00 £3.50. So romantic. As per their recommendation a kimono would look fab.

Thread Head Fabrics – 100% organic cotton “It’s got a lovely hand and a bit of drape that would make it work so well for not only quilts, tote bags, table runners, etc., but also for shirts, skirts, dresses and more! “. £12 a meter or £3 the fat quarter

Fabric Galore – Liberty  brushed back sweatshirt  £11 half a meter. i am feeling all kind of Stella hoodie by Tilly and the buttons

I have loved the past 2 colours of the year: Green Greenery in 2017 and Ultra Violet 2018. My blog  colour scheme is based around this pairing after all.

I wear very little coral but I am aware that it is a flattering colour for pretty much any skin tone, stretching right up to orange.

I look forward to injecting some Living Coral vibes to my life and experimenting with  fabric choices, nails varnish, accessories.

And it is such a happy colour. It will definitely help me forgot the gloomy and cold days. May be I’ll change my home decor to coral right now!

Do you think you will be living it coral?
