7 Ways With Coral
Natural shades don't have to be tame or mild -- in fact, this vibrant hue is nature at its most brilliant.
Coral's inviting capacity is well-recognized by decorators. "It's not just for coastal settings," says Palm Beach designer Brooke Huttig. "We have no problem pitching it to our clients. It sets the mood and says, 'Get in here, you're going to have a great time.'" Versatility is part of the color's appeal. Coral creates impact amid earth tones and pastels, as well as white, beige, camel, and honey-gold tones. It's sexy when paired with Asian-inspired deep-brown or black surfaces, and it turns chic alongside graphic patterns such as Greek-key borders.
