5 Ways To Bring Living Coral Into A Home

The Pantone colour of the year is coral, I will be honest when I heard the news I wasn't at all impressed. Coral is not my go-to colour and I had to think deeply about how it would work in an interior setting. Here is my take on "Living Coral"


Wall paint 

If wallpaper is not quite your vibe you can always go for a beautiful coral paint, from Farrow and ball or Sanderson. Great introduction of pastel tones into the home. Works well as a feature wall, or as a breakout colour in a large living or dining space.

Botanicals are great throughout the year especially this time of year when outside is not so welcoming matched with coral planters makes for something special. Mix and match or going through a carefully curated set can look great in the corner of your room or mantlepiece.

To get the home details in sync I often buy plates to decorate around the home to use to store items such as jewellery or keys. Why not get some coral plates to liven up your side table.

Wallpaper is in, but not like you know it pairing it with tonal hues or the same colour can work as a great breakout space. Wallpaper with patterns running through makes it look interesting and engaging. We love this bold print from Style Library.

Throws & Blankets 

One of the great things about coral it's vibrant and fresh and can be a great way to start the new year. So with that being said using texture and linen can really revitalise a space. It's a small change that will make a difference such as throws or blankets.
