The coral craze is here to stay

With Pantone announcing Living Coral as their Colour of the Year for 2019, there has never been a better time to embrace the bold and energetic hue.

There is no doubt that coral hues fit perfectly into the textbook summer palette, which can be used indoors and outdoors while keeping spaces feeling fresh, casual and relaxed.

Wendy Rennie, Haymes Paint Colour and Concept Manager says, “the energy created by the use of these hues creates a subtle colour saturation, fostering spaces that just feel like an 'exhale'.”

For those looking for a colour match from the Haymes range, the fittingly named shade ‘Coral Serenade’ will add the perfect pop of coral to any space.

Featured in the first volume of the Haymes Colour Library, ‘Curate’, Coral Serenade pairs harmoniously with rich tans and soft greys, or for an unexpected and contrasting look against electric blues and deep navy tones.

Most recently Haymes has seen coral incorporated through soft furnishings and accessories, paired against the light and airy pastels of the ‘Cohabitate’ palette from Volume 11 of The Colour Library.

For those looking for a subtle alternative to fiery coral, peachy pastels like Haymes Chateau provide an understated flush of colour that still injects energy into a space.

Wendy says that the pastel nature of the colours means they blend and recede subtly into the background to create the perfect breathing space, and one that doesn’t feel overcrowded.

If pastels aren’t your thing, then warm reds and oranges offer the perfect alternative for a space, while offering added depth and dimension.
