Fashionable Friday: 2019 Color of the Year

A couple weeks ago Pantone announced their prediction for the Color of the Year for 2019. They chose “Living Coral” a coral color with a golden undertone that they say “energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.” I tend to think of coral as a pinky-orange. I think it’s definitely a pleasing color. So, in honor of the Color of the Year, which is in direct opposition to the dark, colorless winter of the North American winter I currently reside in, I thought it would be uplifting to build a Fashionable Friday around the color.

  1. I already have the Clairefontaine 1951red coral notebook. I have an interest in the Kaweco red fox pen.
