Dramatic Introductions

For premium impact, use coral in moderation. "You don't want to oversaturate or use dated colors. But used sparingly it can produce dramatic results, even if your personal taste is more reserved," says Florida designer Phillip Sides. Often, just a few details will create the desired effect. Sculptural branches of real coral, as well as clever look-alikes (see tieback at left), are great eye-openers. Cushions, rug borders, trim, stitching, and framed art are all ways to introduce the color. A unique furniture item can do the job too. "I can imagine a bright, coral-colored leather ottoman working wonderfully," says Sides.
