Color Crush: Coral Touches in the Home

Color Crush: Coral Accents for the Home

In this weekly column, I'm bringing you chic home décor products and ideas that won't break the bank. This week, I’m crushing on coral accents.

Radiant Orchard has made a name for herself as Pantone’s color of the year, but I think coral is the hue for the season at home. Coral touches in the home add a fresh perspective especially in the springtime and throughout summer, and will contribute to a happy blend of his-and-her décor choices. Remember last week’s grey bedroom? You can brighten up the space by adding a coral pillow and lamp without worrying your other half that the master suite will turn into the color of sherbet! If you want to change up your nautical inspired den, a striped throw will bring lots of new into your space for under $20.
I think there are a few colors that make the most impact: yellow, navy, and coral. The shown stackable box set is a good choice to hide clutter (it happens to the best of us) and will help you achieve that inspired bookshelf you pinned a few months ago. If you’re in doubt about lacquer, start with a small piece at home; it’ll still make a big impact but it won’t cost you a lot.

The most fun space to experiment with color is in the dining room or when entertaining. A set of colored glasses will set you back about $12, but imagine the impact when your guests arrive and see a decorated table. With coral glasses, you can reuse for Thanksgiving by mixing in deep red or berry linens and a bright green for the holidays to steer away from the usual tones.
