Florals in Corals

Following Pantone's announcement of their 2019 color of the year, Living Coral, we expect to see more corals in every aspect of design

Pantone announced that their 2019 color of the year is Living Coral, so we expect to see more corals in every aspect of design, from fashion and furnishings to (of course) florals. We love all the coral tones found in flowers of nearly every type, and seeing pops of coral in flower arrangements.

Coral’s appearance in these arrangements certainly captures the buoyancy, vibrance, and effervescence Pantone describes.
