Personally coral has been a favorite color of mine in fashion for a few years but now you are starting to see coral emerge in the interior design industry with aggression. Not only is coral fun and fresh but it's a happy color. It tends to improve the energy and emotion of any space.
Coral can be used as a main backdrop color or on an accent wall or it can be used as a pop color on accessories such as pillows, lamps & vases. If you're apprehensive about using the color, trimming a pillow or lampshade is a great way to introduce this hue.
Coral is a great color to combine with other colors such as turquoise, teal, gray or your basic neutrals. My favorite combination is turquoise and coral, it adds a lively, fresh, exuberant feeling to a bedroom, living room, office space or even a spa.
Another emerging trend is bringing the indoors to the outdoors. Now, you can just about find any interior fabric made in an outdoor fabric as well. You can have a "Garden Party" themed backyard for birthdays, summer get togethers or to just lounge in the evenings with your family.
The ground you walk on is now filled with color. Hand knotted or synthetic, you can find festive colors in rugs everywhere you look. Coral is now emerging right under your feet. Chevron, floral, or geometric patterns help to excite any space with pops of color combinations that keep coral in today's forefront.
