Accent Your Outdoor Living Space With Pantone Color

Sometimes it can be a challenge to introduce a bold color like Living Coral on your home’s exterior. We decided to pair our GAF Timberline Ultra HD charcoal asphalt shingles and white LeafGuard® Brand Gutters with Living Coral. The charcoal color is calming and neutral allowing it to be the perfect backdrop when combined with this spirited color. Not sure where to start? Here are a few tips on ways you can incorporate this year’s pop of color, or any pop of color for that matter into your home.


Decorative lanterns are an easy and attractive way to add a splash of color and lighting to an outdoor space. Electric table lamps approved for outdoor use are a great decorative accent as well.


There are a variety of plants that you can find in the coral hue. For example, Dahlia’s offers an assortment of coral-colored blossoms. Is your home in need of more than just a new color theme?
