An Essential Guide: How to Mix and Match Pantone's Colour of the Year

As lovers of bright and bold colours, we couldn’t be happier with Pantone’s choice of 'Living Coral' as 2019's Colour of the Year.

Inspired by this vibrant tropical hue, we've done the colour testing for you and have created an essential guide on how to mix and match and use this cheerful colour effectively in your home.

The warmth of 'Living Coral' will create an elegant contrast with colder shades of blue providing a feeling of balance to the room.
