Pantone's Color Of The Year: Living Coral

Generated by the Pantone Institute, the Color of the Year for 2019 that will appear everywhere (apparently) is Living Coral.

Not quite orange, not quite pink, I actually like the shade.   I'm mostly aware of the Color of the Year via the crochet and yarn sites I follow.   Since I'm currently looking for some peach shades to add to my yarn stock, this might be a nice choice, as long as it's a soft version.

About Pantone Color of the Year

For 20 years, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion, home furnishings, and industrial design, as well as product, packaging, and graphic design.
The Color of the Year selection process requires thoughtful consideration and trend analysis. To arrive at the selection each year, Pantone’s color experts at the Pantone Color Institute comb the world looking for new color influences. This can include the entertainment industry and films in production, traveling art collections and new artists, fashion, all areas of design, popular travel destinations, as well as new lifestyles, playstyles, and socio-economic conditions. Influences may also stem from new technologies, materials, textures, and effects that impact color, relevant social media platforms and even upcoming sporting events that capture worldwide attention.
