We were wrong, but it's so right - Pantone's colour of the year

You may recall, back in September, the Distinctify team placed some early bets on what Pantone would reveal as their colour of the year for 2019. As expected, I can now confirm that every single one of us was wrong. No prizes for guessing who was closest (me). I went for an earthier tone of Terracotta, a colour not quite as bright or pink toned as Pantone’s eventual choice of Living Coral. The peachy shade of pink is lively yet mellow. Its vibrancy does not detract from its warmth. But more importantly, unlike last year's shade Ultraviolet, it is infinitely easier to integrate into your home. Purple suits Barney, but it’s not great in your kitchens. This year you’ll be spoilt for choice as to which items and shades of coral you integrate into your home.


Dip your toe into the trend with this Cult Furniture cushion - £32


...Or dive head first, like this example from The Spruce, and paint a feature wall.


Coral is a broad spectrum, stretching into tones like pink an orange. Don’t be afraid to explore Coral’s cousins, like this large blush pink bed bench, available on request through Distinctify. - £319


This Anthropologie chair, in the colour Blossom, is a 1920’s style dream. - £398
