It’s official: Pantone has crowned Living Coral as the color du jour of 2019 and we could not be more excited about it. A far cry from its predecessors Ultra Violet (2018) and Greenery (2017), this bright, playful hue brings forward a liveliness we haven’t seen in Pantone’s picks in years. Plus, wouldn’t it make just the perfect shade of blush?

To quote the color authorities, Living Coral is “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.” It’s a color we’ve seen everywhere this year already: in social media, on the runways, among the watercolor skies of our everyday sunsets, and, of course, in beauty. Living Coral speaks to us on so many levels. For one, it exudes a vitality and optimism we could all use more of in the coming new year—so for a brighter 2019, why not incorporate this energizing hue into your everyday life?
