THE color for 2019 has been selected. Coral, and all variations, has always been a favorite of mine. It is so warm and inviting. “Coral Sands” brings to mind beautiful beach resorts. It is sociable, optimistic and full of joy. Coral is a color found in nature. It is a sunset color.
I’m thrilled that this color will permeate all areas in 2019. My personal choices for color are in the Sunset Palette. According to Leatrice Eiseman in her book More Alive With Color, the elements of fire and earth underscore the Sunset palette. These are the colors that make me happy. There is so much to the psychology of color. I think everyone should take the time to analyze how they feel when they are wearing certain colors or look at colors. It is very telling!
Living Coral will warm up our visual field this year. I hope that we see it in home décor. It is a natural for apparel because it is such a cosmetic color. Who wouldn’t want to be warmed up with coral?
