Spotlight: Pantone’s 2019 Color of The Year

For this month’s Spotlight post, Modern Tropical is shining our spotlight on Living Coral, Pantone’s color of the year for 2019.


If you were wondering whether the tropical trend would continue in the coming year, you have your answer. This vivid pink-orange hybrid pairs well with aqua, teal, yellow, blush pink, and all the metallic shades. It’s adventurous and cozy at the same time, and how many colors can say that?
