When Pantone announced ‘Living Coral’ as 2019’s Color of the Year, it quickly became apparent that we were all in dire need of something – anything – that brings with it a sense of optimism. Described by the global authority on color as “animating and life-affirming”, this peachy shade of orange boasts golden undertones, which means it pairs effortlessly with the likes of charcoal gray, sea green, and navy blue.
We think this makes it the perfect hue for an accessory – be it for your home or your wardrobe. After scouring some of your favorite retailers and e-tailers, Savoir Flair has curated a shoppable edit of coral-colored accents ranging from oh-so-subtle to unapologetically bold. The common denominator? They all feel vibrant, yet mellow – just as Pantone predicted.

When a bowl is this beautiful, it deserves a spot on your dresser. The pieces in this collection were inspired by the “allure and bounty of the ocean floor” – we just love the idea of tossing our rings into it at the end of the day.

If you rely on fancy candles to add flair to your bathroom, why not pick one that feels especially compatible with 2019? ‘Amon’ is named after – and was inspired by – the ancient Egyptian god of the same name, and scented with incense, rose, and patchouli on a base of sandalwood and cedarwood.
