This is an illustration of our work and not the exact Pantone reference for Coral.

And it’s all coral…

Pantone has just announced their colour of the year and it’s none other than PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral! We’re always super excited for their colours to be announced as we appreciate the importance of colour and colour-matching, especially when it comes to planning the theme of your wedding.

Pantone, the colour experts, describe this hue as ‘An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge’ – what more could you want for your special day?! Perfect for spring/summer it will add light, warmth and a feminine touch to your décor and the good thing is it looks great against most skin tones too! But aside from all that, let’s talk about flowers. You have the option to go all coral and just look to having one hue, or alternatively you can add some coral to an existing palette you already have in mind, just let us know – remember, if you can imagine it we can create it.

Here’s a few examples of how to incorporate the colour of the year into your flowers…

Garlands

A garland is a great way to add a special touch to your wedding décor. For instance, you can mix coral roses with foliage to create a dash of femininity to an antique fireplace, mantelpiece, staircase – the list goes on!

Bouquets

Again, we can create a bouquet to match your colour theme, so if you’re honouring the colour of the year, then we can add it into your bouquet – no problem.

Table settings

If you just want to add a little bit of coral to your day then why not opt to just add a few stems to your table settings? This just gives a nod to this beautiful hue without committing to it fully.

Flower crowns

Flower crowns are a great way to complete your look and if it has a touch of coral in it than all the better!

“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 centre of our naturally vivid and chromatic ecosystem, PANTONE Living Coral is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of colour.” – PANTONE.
