Coral Crush

Introducing Pantone’s 2019 Colour of the Year… coral! ‘Living Coral’ to be precise. Or, to be even more precise: “16-1546”. 

Dessy are clearly one of our design teams ahead of the curve, with a range of their 2019 sample styles (due in store in early January) coming in a coral shade we adore called ‘firecracker – perfect coral’. We’re sure some of our other designers will launch coral-esque offerings soon. 

Feeling inspired to crush on coral? Coral works well for Spring weddings, or to inject a real splash of colour into any wedding!

While it can be tricky to match flowers identically to the shade of coral you need, a deeper red, or white blooms will draw out the brightness of the coral. Think peonies, anemones and David Austin roses, each teamed with grey/green foliage. Gorgeous!

Complimentary colours include sage (or any grey/green), turquoise, navy and sand. While we wouldn’t recommend incorporating all of these colours (colour overload!), mixing one of these with coral and crisp white can help bring all the elements together. 

Be bold! Live a little with incorporating a little ‘Living Coral’ into your big day!
