Living Coral Decorative Accents and Furniture: Pantone’s Color of the Year 2019

How to decorate your living room in coral, the 2019 Pantone color of the year

If there’s one color you should consider for updating your living room, Pantone’s Color of the Year may be your new “it” color! Cheerful and sophisticated, Living Coral casts a sweet peach pink vibe that contrasts well with a variety of hues ranging from teal to gold! Our curated inspiration board of decorative accents to furniture pieces shows you how to add a pop of color with ease (*this post contains affiliate links).


Whether you crave a farmhouse look or a cool eclectic style, have fun mixing and matching these pieces. You can coordinate coral nicely with neutral shades of taupe, grey, or charcoal. Or for a bright palette, you can use coral with cobalt blue, turquoise, or violet. Get ready to give your living room space a fresh look with coral! Do note that we are providing you with a monochromatic look, so you can certainly mix and match these elements in contrasting colors.

Start with an anchor element such as a credenza (1) where you can place accent pieces in gold complemented with succulents in Depression glass style pots (2).  Add coral lamps (3) contrasted on a wooden or glass coffee table. Concrete color blocked candles (4) in coral provide an aroma of fragrant grapefruit, while chic ombré pillows (5) in coral would look fabulous against a taupe or grey sofa. Furnish your reading nook with a cool coral agate side table (6) topped with pretty faux coral peonies (7). Vary your seating arrangements by adding a coral side chair (8) and a crochet pouf (9). For your floor, include a coral geometric rug (10). Then, add a stylish coral picture in watercolor framed on your wall (11).
