Here's your super-advanced color forecast.
While you still might be in the midst of decking out your beach house in Spring’s haute hues—lime punch, anyone?—believe it or not, color trends for the new year are already in.
And according to the Pantone Color Institute, the future is delicious.
The authority on all things color recently released a taste of their PANTONEVIEW Home + Interiors Guide for 2019, and among the 72 forecasted hues is a quintet of culinary-inspired shades.
The “Cravings” palette, according to Pantone, includes allusions to “fetish foods”—yup, you read that right—from rich Butterum and Cappuccino to spicy Chili Pepper and Cayenne. The hues will “draw upon memorable sensory experiences to inspire new ones that will be just as pleasing.”
On the coast, deep shades like these work well as statements—as an accent wall or upholstery on a sofa (if you’re bold)—or simply as one shade within your throw pillow repertoire.

But, say you’re less into fetishy shades, there’s also a Classico collection of 8 hues that includes Rich Gold, Mallard Blue, and Apricot Brandy. According to Pantone, “the colors are “fundamental, basic, and everlasting, while at the same time, elegant and forever fashionable.” With hues that pay a subtle homage to sunsets, sand, and sea, that’s certainly true on the coast.
