Party Inspiration from Pantone Colour of The Year – ‘Living Coral’
We are THRILLED here at Balloonista that Pantone have announced their colour of the year for 2019 to be ‘Living Coral’ – “An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge”.
They say, “vibrant, yet mellow PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.
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. Representing the fusion of modern life, PANTONE Living Coral is a nurturing color that appears in our natural surroundings and at the same time, displays a lively presence within social media.”
If that description doesn’t scream ‘party!’ to you, then we don’t know what does! Lively and engaging, we are envisioning samba-style warmth and vibrancy, complementary tones of metallics and mint, and bright cheerful pops of colour through everything from balloon decor to florals, balloon party settings and outfits.
Not only is this orangey-pink tone aesthetically pleasing, it comes with an ecological ethos we can get behind. Living Coral represents the natural world and a powerful regenerative force we need to nurture, not ruin – something we are passionate about here at Balloonista which is why we use high quality compostable latex balloons.
