Coral Love

July 16, 2012

So I've been noticing a trend emerging in my pins;  coral.
On pillows, chairs, furniture, windows, and even fashion accessories.
It's no surprise I chose portobello vase fabric for my couch pillows mainly for it's gorgeous pinky coral background.
It's not a shade of pink I'm usually drawn to, but for some reason I think this could be it.
It's mature, it's traditional, it's cozy and it's still pink and all kinds of pretty.
So coral, I'm decidedly in love and want to spread the warmth all over my house.
It's even got me thinking about changing directions just for my one room challenge.
I mean, animal print + coral = AMAZEBALLS!!!
What's your thoughts on this fab color?

  5. I have always loved coral. Coral and teal (especially as a combo) are my favorite colors of all time. I do love to pair coral with cobalt blue as well...in decor and in fashion. I love the coral pillow on your animal print chair! Very classy, yet fun! www.styleoyster.blogspot.com

  8. You know I love BM Cactus Flower. However, my new obsession is those library lights that have the gold and coral shades. Holy goodness!! If I could paint like you, I would have rotating artwork for all my color obsessions.

  9. I'm not usually a fan of coral, but these photos have changed my opinion! Love the coral with animal print and the bold pop on that desk. These photos are great and I hope you do introduce some of this color into your room! Can't wait to see progress on Wednesday! Your style rocks.

  13. I LOVE coral! In fact, just this weekend I was thinking about the chaise lounge I'm painting... the fabric will be beige, but the piping is begging for a little coral surprise. It's the perfect "I need a pop of pizazz!" color.

    Also love that you posted a pic of the Ballard Designs mirror. It's in my living room and it is TO DIE!
