Pantone’s color of the year? Living Coral! It’s a bright, hot for spring and summer, and there are a million ways to use the happy shade. Coral can go with so many other shades too, so you can use it as an accent or a main focus. I love the versatility of living coral for almost every person – it’s universally flattering on light, medium, and dark skin. Goes with nearly every decor too!

I gathered some ideas for you to try using this year’s perfect color!
