The colour experts at Pantone have spoken; 2019’s colour of the year is a buoyant hue known as “Living Coral”. Playful yet opulent, this shade offers a wealth of options for those looking to breathe life into a tired space. Whether you want to update your home accessories, replace a larger piece of furniture, or add soft furnishings to develop texture into the Autumn months, this tone will let your imagination run wild.

Utilising a palette of clay, cream and coral is a fantastic way to blend neutral and vibrant tones to create a room that will really pop. The brightness of the coral is grounded by the light of the cream, and the depth of the clay in order to bring cohesiveness to the scheme.

Bolder approaches will yield bolder results. Think furniture, wall coverings, wall paint, rugs , accessories and soft furnishings to feature coral and clay, leaving cream to be the base tone to balance the room.

To achieve this look at home, use Carpet Court’s  Charming Carpet range in colour Soft Clay – a good neutral tone that will work to complement and soften the brightness of a coral and terracotta scheme.
