In reaction to the onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly embedded in daily life, we are seeking authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy. Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity. Symbolising our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, Pantone 16-1546 Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression.
Representing the fusion of modern life, PANTONE Living Coral is a nurturing colour that appears in our natural surroundings and at the same time, displays a lively presence within social media.
PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral emits the desired, familiar and energising aspects of colour found in nature. In its glorious, yet unfortunately more elusive, display beneath the sea, this vivifying and effervescent colour mesmerises the eye and mind. Lying at the center of our naturally vivid and chromatic ecosystem, PANTONE Living Coral is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of colour.
Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute Leatrice Eiseman is quoted as saying “Colour is an equalising lense through which we experience our natural and digital realities and this is particularly true for Living Coral. With consumers craving human interaction and social connection, the humanising and heartening qualities displayed by the convivial Pantone Living Coral hit a responsive chord.”
Described as “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.” meaning Living Coral is the ideal hue if you’re still planning out the colour palette of your 2019 nuptials. It’s on trend, yes, but it’s also inherently timeless, bright and joyful. (Seriously—how could you not smile seeing this shade?) From favours to flowers, these are some of the ways you can seamlessly incorporate Living Coral into your celebration.
Set the seen from the very start with invitations, save the date and RSVP in pretty coral shades. Consider adding tiny artificial flowers in Living Coral shades to give a hint of the flowers that will feature on your big day. Use floral adhesive to fix petals or small flowers to invitations, RSVP, order of service and placecards for a welcoming touch.
The most important decision, of course, the dress! Coral coloured wedding gowns are simply enchanting –
romantic, elegant and ever-so-slightly bohemian a pale coral wedding dress will be sure to set you apart from others and will allow you to ‘play’ with all the other accessories to embody the feel of Living Coral.
If you don’t fancy green for yourself why not choose pretty dresses in mix and match shades of coral for your bridesmaids for some really striking photos?
……. and don’t forget the men! Bow ties and pocket squares in Pantone’s Living Coral will look fresh and trendy with crisp white shirts and sea blue jackets or waistcoats. Mix and match works well here too! As long as the groom and his groomsmen are wearing the same style of jacket or waistcoat the colours can be different hues of the same colour.
……… and last, but certainly not least, THE FLOWERS!
Now this is where Decoflora UK artificial flowers specialists can really help you. Think not only Coral as a colour but think shape and texture when selecting the artificial foliage, berries and flowers for a Living Coral bouquet.
Flowers, leaves, berries and succulents can all be combined to create a beautiful, on trend, bridal bouquet or bridesmaids posies. Small bundles of mixed flowers wrapped with twine look brilliant as buttonholes for the groom and his groomsmen.
But the fun needn’t stop there! What about boughs and garlands of artificial flowers for the tables or huge pedestal arrangements for the church or venue. Use artificial flowers to decorate welcome signs and entrances, marquees and barns. The only limits to this playful theme is your imagination ♥
