Pantone and VLW Global Goa

“Pantone’s crowned color for 2019 is one my favorite. I have been extensively using it this year!”, tells Shruty Tiwari of VLW Global Goa


Pantone states:

Vibrant, yet mellow PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.

In reaction to the onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly embedding into daily life, we are seeking authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy. Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression.

Representing the fusion of modern life, 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.

PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral emits the desired, familiar, and energizing aspects of color found in nature. In its glorious, yet unfortunately more elusive, display beneath the sea, this vivifying and effervescent color mesmerizes the eye and mind. Lying at the center of our naturally vivid and chromatic ecosystem, PANTONE Living Coral is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of color.

Shruty Tiwari of VLW Global Goa share their version of the shade they have put to use for the year.

Shruty tells us, “Pantone Living Coralis one of my personal favorite color! I have been extensively using it this year specially for wedding day, brunches, reception and sit down dinner.

The color has so much optimism that I have decked locations by the beach side and by the gorgeous mountain landscape and to mentionthese are;Caravela, ITC Grand (earlier Park Hyatt) Goa, Alila Diwa Goa and Fatehgarh Palace (Udaipur)

Nowadays we notice brides are going for contemporary colors for events rather than sticking to ONLYRed as seen in last wedding season.

The best thingabout this Pantone shade isit fits in the wood and greens perfectly so if we use this color in Hotel lobby with existing elements it stands out! We have used Pantone on florals and fabric.

This color is one which compliments with all shades .. gold, red, greens and Hot pink!
