color of the year by PANTONE®

Coral: An energetic color found in the depths of the 7 seas, charged with precious and naturally vivid organisms. Catch a glimpse of our variety of pigments and formulation examples that replicate the many wonderful shades of coral.

Inspired by PANTONE® color of the year, we created an aquatic experience of our own: A palette of shimmering shades reminding us of coral reefs, anemones and tropical peachy tones suffusing during sunset while melting on the ocean’s surface and complementing its fresh hue of teal. The color flatters every skin tone and enlivens not only aesthetically but also elevates the spirit, providing an ambiance of joyful warmth.
