Here at J’Adorn Designs, one of our favorite New Year traditions is the announcement of the Pantone Color Of The Year.
The new year is a time to embrace certain rituals and traditions of looking back and looking forward. Last week, we reminisced about our favorite editorial collaborations of 2018. But this week is about anticipating all that is to come in 2019!
2018 was royally vibrant with Ultra Violet. But this year, we are so excited about LIVING CORAL!
“An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge”
The warm, playful beachy vibes in Living Coral are GIVING US LIFE. And we are so ready to fast forward to summer. Or, at least to hop on a plane and jet set to the Caribbean!
However, it’s the meaning behind the color that really has us dreaming about all the potential 2019 holds.
This year, Pantone is seeking to capture the real-life warmth of human connection and intimacy with their 2019 choice. Here’s what they have to say about Living Coral:
“In reaction to the onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly embedding into 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. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression.”
Ummm… did they just say: PLAYFUL EXPRESSION?!
Pantone, we must be vibing on the same frequency because Playful Expression is our middle name! Well, at least it’s the middle name we’d give ourselves. Especially when we’re talking TASSELS and GEMSTONES.
And, “enabling connection and intimacy” is basically our mission statement with every special piece we make here at J’Adorn Designs!
Living Coral feels like a day on the beach with your besties. Fruity drinks, straw hats, oversized sunnies, loose braids and vibrant tassel earrings.
We love the way aquas, blues and greens compliment Living Coral and help it pop. So, if you’re wearing a coral swimsuit or sundress, pair it with our blue-hue tassels for a playful expression of your own!
But, if you’re wanting a Living Coral look that’s a bit more refined, we say:
GIVE US ALL THE GOLD!
Rose Gold has been in the spotlight for a few years now, and we’re certainly not ready to see her go. However, yellow gold is the perfect warm metallic to compliment Pantone’s 2019 choice.
And if yellow gold is what you want, yellow gold is what we’ve got!
And lots of it, too. Beyond our Gold Leaves and Pearl Necklace and our Pink Crystal Spike Necklace we’ve got warm golds in just about any way you’d want to wear them.
In addition to Living Coral, we are forecasting the 2019 trend of HAIR ADORNMENTS! Not just for bridal wear, we are seeing an increased demand for beautiful hairpins and combs to be worn day-to-day.
(And especially you babes with the mermaid hair! Twist up all those stunning colors and add some sparkle.)
