coral





for some reason, this color isn't one that i use a lot but every time i see a picture w/ it, i fall in love. here is some inspiration of how wonderful coral looks mixed w/ color or as an accent. and to serve as a reminder to myself as a color that i would like to use in the near future.

Love coral. My parents have their living room decorated with some accents of coral. So refreshing. I love it!

Smitten Design said...

Oh Shannon, this is one of my favorite colors and one of my favorite posts from you. Please let me know if you ever sell that first fabric in the designer's attic!

Loving the new look of your blog! Gorgeous!

Melanie said...

Those are the colors I did in my sons nursery...tangerine and a light blue. Such a cheerful combo! Hope you are hanging in there...how many weeks left?

I've seen that headboard before and it is FAB!

I feel the same way!!!

Mrs. R said...

I am in love with that headboard! Coral is such a beautiful color!

paula said...

coral is one color, okay along with a few other colors, that I said I would never use. After seeing that bath in MS I may have changed my mind. We have that wall color and I rather love the coral with it.

I love it paired with turquoise like in the first two pics, such a fitting combo.

I totally forget about this color but it is so lovely! Thanks for reminding me!

Averill said...

Adore coral, but I too don't really use it in my home...maybe I should change that? It really is perfectly lovely for spring/summer.

My mom and I are seriously obsessed with coral. The first image with that headboard is my favorite!

Hamptontoes said...

I love the first two photos, they really speak to me. Also, fancy the bamboo chairs in the last photo. How are you feeling...still on bedrest?

Sketch42 said...

I bought the most gorgeous coral leather for a scalamandre sale a few weeks ago. Still debating on what i should do with it!

I'm finding myself more drawn to this colour lately, even though those memories of peach/teal from the 80's is still pretty vivid in my mind! : )

Gramercy Home said...

I feel the same - I've been on a huge coral kick lately (and gathering images for a post too). So pretty & inspiring!!

Amanda said...

I love coral lately, especially with turquoise as shown in your first photo. In fact, I made a coral colored curtain for my kitchen & purchased a rug in almost the same color for the kitchen as well. Along with my Tiffany blue KitchenAid mixer & hand towels, it's quite a cute look!

Growing up, my best friends home was everthing I wanted - a coral kitchen, a southern dining room with a massive side-board for serving filet and henry bane sauce and cucumber salad....a living room with bargello needlepointed wing-back chairs. (all done by her Mom, Anne)
