Every year we look forward to seeing what Pantone has chosen as the color of the year. Once the Pantone color is announced, it helps guide trends for the next year, so be prepared to see it everywhere! This year that color is “Living Coral”. According to Pantone's site, the color is described as: "An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge." If your curious as to why this color was chosen, they explained that color helps to express, "optimism and joyful pursuits," playfulness, and looks good on social media.
