A warm and joyful welcome to 2019 to all of you. I hope, you had a great start and made your plans for the new year already. I decided to be brave this year and I truly want to open new doors in design experiences. On my list of goals is silkscreenprinting and I truly want to learn to pour china. And I desperately want to travel a lot. I started this one right away and made a trip with family and friends to Austria. We spent a week in K√§rnten and some of us went skiing up in the mountains. We also had a great time ice-scating on a nearby lake. There wasn´t much snow because the snow clouds got stuck in the alps between Germany and Austria and couldn´t pass the high mountains. It heavily started snowing there for days and unfortunately that was our way back home. We packed our cars with blankets and enough food and drinks and slowly started rolling north with lots of other families. It took us 14 hours to arrive back home (normally it takes 6,5 hours) and we were right on time. After we left, things became worse and the german army had to come for help.

I missed some interesting things while I was gone so I truly need an update with this one. Pantone picked it´s color of the year 2019.  Uhh yeah. This time it is "Living Coral" and even if I don´t have coral clothes in my wardrobe I think it´s a nice color to be around with.
Pantone explains "Living Coral" as "an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge. It 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 Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression. It is a nurturing color that appears in our naturla surroundings and at the same time, displays a lively presence within social media.

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, Living Coral is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of color".

 So, Living Coral is on the start and now we only have to wait until the first shops sell clothes and accessories in that color. I love, when this happens and still I am also kind of suprised when this influence starts to happen.

Have a happy, living coral day,
