vibrant. energetic. alive. Pantone's Color of the Year for 2019 is a reminder that despite the refreshing chill of winter hues, spring and summer colors reign vibrantly supreme.
traditionally a color with popularity in beauty and fashion, Living Coral is versatile. use it to add eye-catching elements to your home. here are a few products our CEO/Creative Director, Juliet loves for incorporating the color into a neutral palette in your kitchen or on your dining table:

While we are enamored with Living Coral, we would be remiss if we didn't acknowledge that the name of the color reminds us that coral reefs around the world are suffering. Why care about reefs? Here's what we found on coral.org:
Coral reefs are an important food source for the people who live near reefs, and, as nurseries, are vital to the world’s fisheries. Many of the compounds now being used in human medicines, including some that treat cancer, are found on coral reefs, with probably many more yet to be discovered. Coral reefs help humans in many other ways too: generating tourist dollars for communities, and—especially important in our changing climate—acting as natural barriers against storm events like hurricanes, typhoons, and even tsunamis.
These are compelling reasons and why we are donating 50% of the proceeds from the sale of the coral colored enamel bangle bracelets on eBay to the Coral Reef Alliance.
on the style board: your warm-weather looks get a vivid boost with accessories in shades of this brilliant coral. go for a complete tone on tone outfit, if you dare or spice up an ensemble in navy, beige or cream with your favorite coral handbag. use lips and nails as canvasses to paint on the glow!
