VIBRANT OCEANIC COLOR: Pantone's selection for 2019

~ oOo ~

What do the colors below all have in common?

Yes, they are color guru Pantone's declaration of the dominant hues for textiles,
accessories, dishware, bedspreads -- you name it -- for the past decade!

And this winter, they have brought us ...

ta da ... 

Living Coral ...

                  • VIVIFYING!

... a cheerful salmon-peachy-creamsicle-y color.

It's an "animating and life-affirming coral hue" with a golden undertone 
"that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge", and sometimes lures goldfish.

Check out some Living Coral fashion items below

This Marc Jacobs model (spring 2019 collection)
is about to be devoured by a cocooning coral reef.

A digression: thoughts on Pantone and the royals ...

Diana could pull these colors off ...

While the current crop of young royals likes to dress in harmony
with each other ...

For a pictorial study of how Pantone came to choose
Living Coral as 2019's favorite color, see this link.
