The Pantone 2019 Colour of the Year is the gorgeous 16-1546 Living Coral.
This beautiful tone encompasses the mellow and vibrant pinks and oranges found in nature and infuses it with a golden undertone which energizes and uplifts. By choosing this colour, Pantone also aims to draw our attention to the natural world and the struggles we are currently facing when it comes to climate change.
Since it was announced in December 2018, designers and creatives from the interior design, fashion, technology and media industries have used this modern and inspirational colour to create brand new and exciting products for 2019.
Here’s how you can have fun with the Pantone 2019 Colour of the Year and bring your office space right up to date…
1. Create a feature wall
Add a splash of colour and introduce a stylish and dramatic focal point to your office space by adding a feature wall. You can be as brave as you like with the colour without needing to completely redecorate, whilst also keeping your space modern and appealing.
2. Add colourful curtains
Curtains add a light splash of colour and soften those sharp, formal impersonal edges of your room. They’re also a very inexpensive and almost effortless way to personalise the space and introduce a sense of warmth and comfort.
3. Update your office artwork and photographs
Bring in some inspiring monochromatic artwork and photographs to bring your colour choices into a room in an understated and stylish way. If you’d prefer not to replace the art itself or you’re not able to, consider investing in attractive new frames instead.
4. Shed some light on the topic
Gently diffuse a coloured light into your workspace and you can shift the mood, increase creativity and productivity and improve the overall ambience of the room.
5. Breathe new life into your furniture
Whether you’re looking to transform your entire office or want to add small colour features, your office furniture is also a great place to focus. Whether it’s those bookshelves, cupboards, filing cabinets or desks that deserve attention, get creative with colours and textures to freshen up and modernise your space.
6. Treat yourself to some new desk and office accessories
Why not treat yourself to some brand-new office accessories which will personalise your space and add a dash of colour and style? There are so many different items that you can choose from including photo frames, notebooks, stationery and tech accessories that you’re sure to find something that you and your colleagues will love.
7. Get new rugs or carpets
There’s no need to tolerate those dull grey, monochrome office floorings. By placing colourful rugs and carpets in your office, you’ll help add flow to the room and infuse a certain warmth and homeliness, as well as add a stylish focal point.
8. Paint your doors
We often forget about doors, but they’re a great place to start your office makeover.
Apply your chosen colour to the entire door to add personality and character or to break up space. To make a real style statement try using contrasting colours or textured paint.
There are many fun ways you can use the Pantone 2019 Colour of the Year to update your office space, inject some personality and bring in warmth and comfort.
