Living Coral: Pantone Colour of the Year 2019

So Valentines has been and gone and we look forward to the next reason to celebrate, and one of my favourites….. pancake day!!

Weddings are much the same as this…. following trends and festivals and one in particular which will heavily influence the wedding trends of 2019 and beyond is Pantone’s Colour of the Year.

Once released it always causes a frenzy between wedding stylists and planners as they take in the new tone(s) and start to include these in their future plans.

So here’s the definitive guide to Pantone Colour of the Year 2019: Living Coral.

An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge – Pantone 2019

Living coral is a vibrant yet versatile shade that can be styled across the four seasons, working equally well with feminine  pastel florals for spring, as a stand alone colour to complement the sunshine of summer as well as deeper tones and berry shades for autumn whilst providing a pop of colour with the darkest of blacks for winter.

Have a look at our Pinterest collection for more ideas of how to incorporate this wonderful shade into your wedding planning:

 

So whenever your day is, this gorgeous shade can work with all colour’s across the seasons. Enjoy!!

Happy planning

Mauve is the New Pink (that makes the boys wink ;-)

As far as trends go Wedding colour’s are up there, the slightest shade variance determining whats in, whats out. Blush tones have been the colours of choice for the last few years but is that all set to change?

Greenery is set to be huge this year as its Pantone Colour of 2017. But what else is proving popular? Trending on Pinterest right now is Mauve and its official….. Mauve IS the new pink.

The boring bit…… Mauve is a pale purple colour that contains more grey and blue than straight purple, not dissimiliar to the tone of a dusky pink (and how popular was that trend) according to good ol’ google.

Just think of it as a dusky lilac and your somewhere handy!

The versatility of the shade means the lighter tones are perfect for spring and summer providing a wistful and romantic twist, think #wisteriahysteria; whilst the darker aspects of the colour add dimensions for depth to autumnal and winter weddings, working well when paired with green/silver/grey toned foliage alongside  other colours such as white, cream, pink, lilac & purple.

Here’s some mauve inspiration to get your juices flowing:
