Beloved Flower Lover,
We love you so we are asking you , how can we approach the use of Living Coral 16-1546 Pantone colour of the year? For your life? For your colour choice of flowers?
You are free to choose your approach. That’s the freedom we are reminded of as we think about the Pantone colour of 2019.
A Few Questions
- If you wear or use other colours are you outside of ‘grace’?
- Is it really about being told what the colour is and how we should be acting and looking like which is not necessarily in line with our own image of ourself?
- What happens if we are not clear about who we are?
- what happens if we feel we do not have that colour or external thing that we have been told will make the difference to us.?
- What happens if the colours we use are considered, ugly?
- What ? so what?
Don’t get us wrong, we love colour and love that fact that we have people, like the pantone crew, who guide us and allow us to think more about colour and so on.
Vibrant, yet mellow PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.

Pantone Colour of 2019
We all can benefit from external validation- lets be honest
External confirmation is a tricky thing. We love to do our own thing and although we say, it’s not about the colour that someone else is telling us that we need . Perhaps we do need to get some external confirmations. Feedback is a powerful thing. Imagine we realise that we are being listened to and we get that confirmation by wearing the ‘so called right colour, outfit, makeup’. Sometimes we need to have that conversation with others and then perhaps through that process we find our own answers.
Sometimes we need to just be soft with ourselves as we realise that we are looking for external validation. As we come to others for validation and direction. It’s a bit like working with a teacher until we grow in our own confidence.
Yes, as we grow, we are learning to let go of our youthful inexperience. So perhaps it’s as much about what we say to ourselves during this period of time when we look to others for guidance and external validation.Whilst on one hand – what if the healing for 2019 is not about getting externally validated from the living coral scheme. Supposed its a year when we decide what we mean for ourselves first.
Orange, Coral, really is what we need this year. The colour that we can unravel in during this year. The year that we can express our social collective selves.
- What if you yourself write down what your product is. Be clear.
What if you today is about being clear about yourself. You, we will be held accountable by the seeds we have to plant. How do we see ourselves, and the price we give for ourselves. Please do not forget who you are this year. Identity is more about what is coming through us, rather than what is being given to us.
We love the fact that there are people out there spending time on helping us to be better than before. And we acknowledge the Pantone team’s skill.
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.

Yes, we like the idea of being given the idea that the coral colour is the Pantone colour for 2019. However to start anew for us means that we decide what we really want to feel ourselves experiencing for ourselves this year.
Red and Yellow create orange- think about it-feel the joy of the colours!
Think about the Pantone colour of 2019. It’s an Orange, which is in fact a combination of red and yellow. How will you respond to that vibration? That energy of fun!
We are the keepers of our own temple.Yes we do not need to be defined by others and we can stop acting for camera’s and other peoples ideas of what our life should look like. We are keepers of our own temple, we can clean our live up using colours of fun, joy, optimism as we keep looking at ourselves from self love.
Happy New Year
The London Flower Lover
