After Pantone announced the 2019 color of the year was Living Coral, I went exploring to find some beautiful coral images to bring the color to life.

And instead of finding colors that went well with living coral, I found myself amazed at the majestic colors in the coral reefs and intriguing underwater life that is so hidden in our everyday lives.

I became mesmerized with the colors in a simple jellyfish – as you’ll notice from the excessive amount of jellyfish I’ve included in this collection.

These 25 color palettes were inspired by Pantone’s color of the year, Living Coral – but you won’t find much of the new color among them – instead, you’ll find a beautiful rainbow of colors – with many of my personal favorite color combinations among them!

But before I show you the new palettes, here’s a look at Pantone 16-1546 – Living Coral.

PANTONE 2019 Color of The Year – Living Coral 16-1546

PANTONE Color of the Year 2019, Living Coral

As it’s described on the Pantone website, vibrant, yet mellow PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment. PANTONE Living Coral is a nurturing color that appears in our natural surroundings and at the same time, displays a lively presence within social media.

I really love this color, so I made sure it was included in at least a few of the color palettes from this collection.

I am particularly excited about these color schemes, because they are perfect for color inspiration for my Sea Life Collection of 12 coloring pages. In fact, you’ll find a few jellyfish in there – I challenge you to use one of these color combinations to bring them to life!

Now please enjoy these 25 new color palettes inspired by life underwater!
