For a fun and fresh bedroom, coral is a great color choice. You can use it as the foundation tone if you want something super cheery or eclectic. But, if you just use it as an accent color, it’ll still be a serene, calming place to relax. Mix it with gray for something more subtle or with black for a more modern appeal.

Don’t be shy. If you love this color, then use it in a small, but bright spot of the house. Dress your foyer or hallway in a beautiful shade of coyer and add subtle accents. Allow the color to shine on its own without a lot of accessories filling the space. Chocolate browns, whites and blacks compliments will make this part of your home a standout.

Whether you’re dining in the breakfast nook for an early morning bagel or having a beautiful holiday dinner in a the dining room, coral can bring life and crispness to the space. Just use them as accents instead of in large doses of color, but accent with a vision in mind. If you have coral chairs, create a theme around it. Or if you have a theme in place figure out what type of coral you need to finish the look.

Light and dark shades of coral work well in the bathroom. It provides a clean, fresh feel and it isn’t too harsh on the eyes either. We love ivory and golds for complimentary colors. They’re sophisticated, easy palettes that make designing and decorating a breeze, but you’ll still have the right amount of class in the bathrooms.
