The Colour of 2019 is Revealed

… you’re going to love it!


For 20 years, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion, home furnishings, and industrial design, as well as product, packaging, and graphic design. Now Weddings, thanks to Front Row Bride!

2019’s selection is a social, spirited colour, which aims to instill a sense of warmth and optimism.

What is the all-new colour making headlines, you ask?

Drum roll please…. the 2019 colour of choice, is, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral!


The Design Gods have selected an animating and life-affirming coral hue for 2019. It shines with a golden undertone that energises and enlivens. PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral is soft yet vibrant, a real juxtaposition in some ways, to provide nourishment in what PANTONE describe as a “continually shifting environment.”

There’s no doubting it, 21st Century life is a jam-packed way of life, filled with digital technology and social media bubbles, causing us to often blur the lines between reality.

That’s why, the 2019 colour of the year has been chosen to combat this feeling, helping us to seek authenticity and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy.

Living Coral is whimsical and playful. There is also a nod to Mother Nature; Living Coral is found under the sea and in our natural surroundings. Bliss!

We adore PANTONE’s choice for 2019. It’s pretty, it’s romantic, but also represents a serious time in our lives, giving this stylish colour some serious substance too!
