    Last years colour was good but I preferred the 2017 green.

    It's very early 1990s

    Pretty but not really for me.

    I don't usually like the Pantone Colour of the Year and this one is no exception.
  • siriuskey

    I was going to say 1980s, it was the colour to paint your house, no thanks.

    I have coral in curtain headings, two side chairs & scatter cusions. When mixed well with other colours, it is very warming.

    It reminds me of my grandmother corsets from 40's & '50's - remember them with the bones and laces - they always seemed to be this colour.

    Love this! I think of ruby grapefruit, pink sapphires and rosè!
    And as the photo suggests, easy to team up with other citrus colours, teals and turquoise pinks etc.
    Zingy and fresh and fun. But like all trends, if you don’t like, simply avoid!

    Wow, what an even split across the votes to date!

    For those of you that love it and like to incorporate the latest on-trend colours into your décor, accessories such as scatter cushions and artworks are an ideal medium. We created a selection of abstract artworks that hero coral


    As mjbevilacquasays, it is complemented well by pinks and turquoises.

    Sadly, it reminds me of the 80's when bathroom fixtures were a sort of "peach/apricot" colour, along with "avocado"...You can always tell a bathroom that needs an update from the "colour" of its fittings!

    I like it. I would wear it but I have difficulty picturing it in home decor. It says beach house to me and could be lovely for something like that, vibrant and cheerful and relaxed.

    Sorry but I am not impressed it reminds me of my first house in early 80's. Then I used it again in early 90's throughout, why, I dont know. Now I am much happier with antique white.

    Makes me hot just looking at it. Not for me, I prefer a more calming colour.

    ‘Living Coral’ looks amazing with red brick tones which are becoming popular again. It’s a very rich combination giving the bricks new life!
