Like every year, Pantone has chosen the star color of the year. Just a few days ago, the prestigious coloring studio announced that the 16-1546, also called Living Coral, will be the key that will dye absolutely all the trends during the next year, from clothes and accessories to all kinds of decorative elements. It is a coral tone, subtle and lively, that brings energy and dynamism with a touch of softness to any space. Although at first sight it may seem difficult to incorporate into the decoration of a home, just follow some advice and give free rein to creativity.

Less is more

It is the perfect tone to put a note of joy and colour to all types of interiors and spaces. However, since it is a warm colour halfway between red and orange, care must be taken not to overload and saturate the environment. A good solution to integrate the colour of the year in your home is through small decorative pieces such as frames, candles or vases. Try dressing the table with a Living Coral detail and check the versatility and transformation capacity of this tonality.

Wall in full color!

In the main spaces, a wall in full color will get a warm atmosphere and invite relaxation. It is one of the most daring and risky options to include the 16-1546 in the decoration of the house, but also one of the most groundbreaking. Paint one or two walls of your living room, dining room, study or room in this tone to enhance the stay. In order not to saturate the environment and create a balanced contrast, choose to keep the rest of the walls in a more neutral color, such as broken white.

Mixtures ... Impossible?

The highlight of the Pantone 2019 is its versatility. Despite being a color that can be reminiscent of the warmth of summer, it can also be perfect to get a smile on the most winter days. It fits perfectly with different materials, shapes and colors and you can try a thousand and one combinations. If you're not so risky, you can choose to apply it in the rooms in textiles and bedding: blankets, cushions, bedspread ... with a neutral palette in the background.

Flowers

In addition to being a color that exudes happiness and tends to good humor and positivism, Living Coral undoubtedly evokes nature. We can bring a feeling of warmth and relaxation to any space with a floral ornament in this striking tonality. The presence of plant elements makes the spaces come alive and personality and this is a good formula to clean the home of negative energies and put the finishing touch to any exterior and interior decoration with the most natural coral touch.

There are many people who believe that hiring an interior designer and a decorator is redundant. And the truth is that they are two disciplines that although they are very related and are linked to each other, do not overlap each other.

Our spaces have many dimensions, which come from the plane created and executed by the architect, who generally refers to the house or building as a whole until the final phase, which includes the furnishing and decoration of each room and the final touches. Somewhere in the intermediate stages, are the tasks carried out by the interior designer, which is a kind of bridge between the architect and the decorator.

We do not say with this that there are no interior designers that are not able to decorate as the best, or that we can not find a decorator with the same preparation and spatial notions that the best interior designer can have. If we go further back, we could even find an architect capable of providing an interdisciplinary service, ranging from the design and construction of the building without scales until the last detail is ready and happy delegates receive the key in their hands, without any need to hire anyone else.

What we want to emphasize is that an interior designer and a decorator take care of different aspects and if a professional is not there to give us a service that covers all the stages, and would not have to do it, it is necessary to fill that gap by hiring the one that corresponds to every aspect.

In this post, we will explain what an interior designer and decorator does, what are the differences between both jobs and why it is worth hiring both one and another, if we want our house to end up being a perfectly tuned project and very well achieved. ...continue reading "Why hire an interior designer or interior decorator?"
