The Pantone Institute has just announced the official color for 2019 is CORAL. You know, that luscious shade that falls somewhere between orange, salmon, and peach. What does your mind conjure up when you think of coral?
A release from Pantone reads: “Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment. It is an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.”
I always wonder how they read so much into a color. (And why it takes them a whole year to decide.)
However, not all corals are created equal. Here’s a coral chip chart from Sherwin Williams:
As you can see, there are bright corals and not-so-bright corals, corals with brown, pink, and yellow undertones. Some shades of oranges might even be trying to horn in on all ‘coral’ sensationalism. (Shame on you, ORANGE!)
I happen to love coral…if it’s actually the color I think it is. I looked on my Color 1 Color Chart to confirm exactly what shade of coral I look best in. And here it is:
I received a color consult and a Color 1 Color Chart from Janna Beatty several years ago, and I cannot begin to tell you how many ‘color’ mistakes it has helped me avoid. And how much money I have saved in the process. My chart has paid for itself one hundred times over.
My chart stays in my handbag and goes everywhere I do. I consult it before I buy clothing, accessories, makeup, lip color…well, everything.

If you have clothing, accessories, and makeup you never wear, chances are it is because the colors you chose do not mesh with your own natural coloring. Too bold, to pastel, too bright, too toned downed.
Never make another costly color choice again.

Sharon, in my opinion I believe paying $200 , for the average woman , is a bit too much to pay to find the right color to wear. The way I try a color, is to place the garment under my chin and if the color reflects back under my chin, it’s not for me. For example, YELLOW is definitely not my color. RED is my color.
Keep the suggestions coming. I look forward to reading your blog.
