Tickle me pink - or ‘Living Coral,’ to be exact: coral has been deemed Colour of the Year by Pantone. With every day seeming to bring a new headline about how the world is breaking down, Pantone knows what humanity needs as 2018 comes to a close — a Colour of the Year that reflects ‘warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy.’ Introducing the 2019 @Pantone Color of the Year: Living Coral.
