Pantone Colour of the Year - Living Coral

From deep space to the deep sea, Pantone has announced Living Coral as the latest Colour of the Year, snatching the crown from 2018’s choice of Ultra Violet. This happy hue of pinkish-orange elicits snapshots of beach-side holidays spent snorkelling in the surf so use it to sun-soak light-starved cubbyholes and freshen dull schemes with a peachy pop of positivity. After naming Cerulean Blue the colour of 2000, the Pantone Colour Institute has spent each year since scouring the globe for the most scene-stealing shades influencing every aspect of our lives, from product packaging to politics. More than just a colour swatch, these pigment pros describe Living Coral as a nurturing colour that energises and enlivens. It encapsulates today’s return-to-nature backlash against technology and reminds us to protect our rapidly disappearing underwater ecosystems, robbed of their rainbows from bleaching caused by climate change.

Sophie Robinson Collection

There’s no need to go overboard coating your interiors in coral, instead, bring the Great Barrier Reef into your bedroom with accessories that are easily updated on a whim. From our utterly stunning Sophie Robinson Collection, the Pom Pom Knitted Hot Coral Cushions and Throws create a serene snooze-time retreat without sacrificing on colour and make perfect bedfellows with our Sophie Stripe Dazzling Blue Bed Linen. Temper bright, hot hues with crisp, clean whites, for example, the cheeky trim edging our Pom Pom Coral Bed Linen certainly draws your eye and packs an even peppier punch when layered with an ocean of Hot Coral 100% Linen Pillowcases. Complement by adding organic elements like petrified beach wood, seasonal blooms or rattan furniture and awake each day revelling in the wonders of nature.

Are you as utterly besotted with coral as us? Or do you think it’s more prawn cocktail than paradise? Let us know, we would love to hear from you!
