Incorporating Pantone Color of the Year in Residential Design

Does the number 16-1548 mean anything to you? It’s the Pantone 2019 Color of the Year, Living Coral, a warm and subtle shade of orange with golden undertones. We embraced this color for our Great Exploration Kid’s Bedroom — using Calico Aurora wallpaper and emphasizing the calming tone with a Kyle Bunting hide rug patterned in darker hues. We dabbled with its color wheel neighbor for a client’s master bedroom. And in 2019, we’ll be on the hunt for new ways to use this vibrant hue in our residential interior design projects.

New York Fashion Week

Throwback Thursday.  Sherry Hope-Kennedy attended designer’s Zang Toi fashion show during New York Fashion Week. His Spring 2019 couture collection was a tribute to Yves Saint Laurent (Toi traveled to the YSL Museum in Marrakech for his inspiration). Vivid colors and clean silhouettes dominated his runway. We spied shades of purple and what looked like Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2018, Ultra Violet. Designers are influenced by all they see around them including fashion. Interior designers draw on the trends and colors as the season changes. Fashion and interiors are always evolving.

The San Francisco Fall Art & Antiques Show

The team at Studio SHK attended the annual San Francisco Fall Art & Antiques Show Opening Night Preview Gala last week. Definitely one of the best parties in town! The guests were as fashionable as the art. And some of the arts and antiques would fit perfectly into our interior design projects and residential remodels.
