Sea reefs and sunsets: Living Coral is colour of the year


NEW YORK — The Pantone Color Institute has chosen Living Coral as its 2019 colour of the year.

Company vice-president Laurie Pressman told The Associated Press ahead of Wednesday’s announcement that Living Coral has a saturated orange base with a golden undertone. She calls the colour “convivial,” warm, welcoming, versatile and life-affirming. Last year’s pick was the vivacious Ultra Violet.

Pantone’s colour experts scour the globe in search of colour trends leading to its top choice. Living Coral is Pantone’s 20th colour of the year.
