Described as an animating and life-affirming coral hue, with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge, this year’s Pantone Colour of the year is Living Coral 16-1546. Baines Masonry Block’s range of colours complement and provide contrast, especially when designing with Living Coral.
Moving away last year’s Ultra Violet 18-3838, this year’s colour is said to embrace us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment. Appearing in the natural environment, Living Coral represents a fusion of modern life, the influence of nature and the online digital world, and as such is a perfect colour for design; both indoor and outdoor.
Using Living Coral within a design can bring opportunities to create unique spaces with impact, whether painting a feature wall, adding accent pillow, paving a driveway or building an outdoor entertainment space. With the warm tones it blends well with both natural and modern design styles, which are translatable over time and will not date as per previously used design elements.
At Baines Masonry Blocks, we provide a broad range of masonry blocks, pavers and sleepers in a variety of colours that complement the use of Living Coral and varying design styles. The main colours available include opal white, Appin stone, bush rock, charcoal, Oakdale, Penrose, yellow rock and red rock. Similar to Living Coral, the Baines Oakdale colour is a similar tone and warmth, providing an opportunity to design a project based entirely on this year’s Pantone colour; Living Coral.
To aid in the design of a project, Baines Masonry have developed an online Masonry Designer Software which allows you to select the colour, block type and layout. The result is an electronic visual of your project, taking the risk out of your design choices as making a decision can sometimes be hard when the outcome is not clear.The possibilities are endless, as you can mix colours and block types while creating numerous examples.
