“Living coral” is the official shade of 2019, according to the guardian of all things color, Pantone.
Moving on from 2018 Color of the Year “ultra violet” (Pantone 18-3838), living coral (Pantone 16-1546) injects a zest for life into our everyday. “Just as coral reefs are a source of sustenance and shelter to sea life, vibrant yet mellow,” Pantone explains, “living coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.”

Introducing the Pantone Color of the Year 2019, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral – an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge. Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression. #COY2019
According to Pantone, living coral was designed for playful expression and was selected for 2019 as it encourages a shift away from the “onslaught of digital technology.”
