Inspiration Board – Living Coral

He kissed her and promised. Such Beautiful lips! Man’s usual fate – he was lost upon the coral reefs.

– Douglas Jerrold


Each year colour experts Pantone announce what they feel will be big in the world of colour. This is split into Spring/Summer, Autumn/Winter and one ‘colour of the year’. As you may have already guessed, this year’s colour of the year is Living Coral. Over the next few weeks I will be giving you my take on each of the Pantone colours for Spring/Summer 2019, starting with the colour of the year…


For this board I was inspired by the artwork (top left). I love the vibrancy and tropical vibe that coral brings and feel that tones of blue, green and grey really help to balance that out and give it a classy look. Imagine using this colour palette for an outdoor wedding, warm sunshine with a cooling breeze as your guests sip on ice cold cocktails… lush!
