A lively, warm and gentle tea rose hue has been designated the »color of the year 2019«. It »appears in our natural surroundings and at the same time, displays a lively presence within social media«, explained color specialist Pantone LLC as they presented their choice, which they decided to call »Living Coral«.

Presumably Strong Trend
The color of the year 2018, a bold, bright, and somewhat pompous violet referred to as »Ultraviolet« didn’t really catch on. For the much more harmonious tea rose hue »Living Coral«, chances are expected to be much better. It is expected to become a dominant trend in fashion, consumer goods, and even interior design next year. The trend was already looming on the catwalks lately. Tea rose and coral hues are playing an important role in spring fashion from Prada, Hermès, Brandon Maxwell, and Giambatista Valli for instance, while Calvin Klein, Moschino, and other fashion labels already used them in their 2018 fall collection.

Sound-transparent Fabrics in the Colour of the Year
Speaker cloth from Akustikstoff.com in Tea Rose keep you well prepared for the upcoming trend. The colour is available as a Standard Acoustic Cloth (colour code 35), as water-repellent and stain-resistant Acoustic Cloth 2.0 (colour code 135), and as nonflammable Acoustic Cloth FR, which is particularly suitable for public buildings (colour code 235).

Design Hints
Tea Rose can be harmoniously combined with many colours – another big difference to last year’s somewhat conceited violet. It comes especially nice when combined with speaker fabric in Pastel Blue (color code 34) – a combination that creates the positive, maritime yet warm color play of a coral reef, to which Pantone themselves refer in their video for their color of the year 2019. Artichoke (47), Navy Blue (38), Light Ochre (20), Off Yellow (21), and Green Tea (40) also make for attractive, warm, summery combinations.
