Pretty in Pink: Living Coral is Pantone's 2019 Color of the Year

The votes are officially in. The one and only Pantone has finally come out with its pick for 2019's color of the year. The big winner? A salmon-y hue by the name Living Coral. Warm and full of life, Living Coral is slated to hit the market hard in the new year. We're so ready for the madness.

Living Coral: Its Meaning and Background

Living Coral is, objectively, an electrifying color. It brings life to all it adorns. It embodies both the retro vibes of mid-century conventions of aesthetic while also remaining true to the Tumblr-era generation of consumer-level taste-making we are all so familiar with. Living Coral truly does it all.

The choice has more than mere surface-level significance. Pantone recognizes the color as evocative of the living ecosystem made possible by coral wherever in the world it finds itself growing. It urges us to stay mindful of the ecological implications our choices make. The team at Albert's definitely plans to take this cue and re-approach some of the less-than-green parts of our lives this January. New Year, new us.

Aside from that, Living Coral is known for its connection to meditation and the calming of the mind. It is noted for its ability to provide energy to the beholder, making it a powerful symbol to include in your wardrobe in the coming months.

Designer Spotlight: Kabana and Living Coral

Riviera Pendant and Chandelier Earrings

Kabana's acclaimed Riviera collection makes liberal use of living coral as one note in the line's overall earthy color palette. The Riviera pendant makes a striking statement in stunning Living Coral, mother of pearl, and diamond. Same goes for the Riviera chandelier earrings, both set in luscious 14k yellow gold.

Kabana Drop Earrings

These Kabana drop earrings are equally tempting, their gentle lines and curves serving as the perfect canvas for its spiny oyster details in gorgeous Living Coral.
