WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — The start of a new year is a time to set goals, clear your head and throw fresh shade — of the colorful variety.
Earlier this month, the Pantone Color Institute unveiled its 2019 Color of the Year, a hue it boasts "embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment."
Beginning Jan. 1, it's out with Ultra Violet, the 2018 Color of the Year, and in with 2019's Living Coral.
Pantone noted the undersea shade's "lively presence" not just in nature but also in social media.
"Color is an equalizing lens through which we experience our natural and digital realities and this is particularly true for Living Coral," Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone executive director, said in a statement. "With consumers craving human interaction and social connection, the humanizing and heartening qualities displayed by the convivial PANTONE Living Coral hit a responsive chord."
