How to Use PANTONE Color of the Year 2019

We have created five different color palettes that feature PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral to help you bring this year's special shade into your designs and illustrate the dynamic nature of this color within various combinations. Within each of these five color stories, we have also included suggested color harmonies. The color harmonies provide direction for how individual colors in the palette can be mixed together in varying proportions.
