In short, Living Coral is the perfect playful color to introduce into your home this year. Here are some great ways to display PANTONE’s color of the year in your home this year.
Use it for an accent wall
An accent wall is a great way to incorporate the color into your home without having to do too much work. Since, it’s a bright color, having it take over all four walls may be too much for you, so stick with just painting one.
If you don’t want to take the time to paint your walls (or you can’t because you’re renting), consider using different pieces to accessorize your living space instead. This can be anything from a throw rug, to blankets, to pillows. It’s a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to incorporate the color into your home.
Statement pieces are single, large pieces that encourage conversation. A statement piece, such as a sofa, a large floor rug, or a piece of artwork, is a great way to incorporate the color into your home.
Brighten up a room
Do you have any rooms in your house that don’t get much light? Use Living Coral to brighten up the room! The warm undertones of the coral will brighten up any room you decide to put it in.
