Coral crush

Shades of coral: stunning natural beauty

If you read my Interior Moods post, you’ll know that there is something in this spring air that has got me completely besotted with the cheery sweet shades of coral.

Being a mix of pink, orange and yellow (all happy colours!), it’s no wonder coral feels so uplifting.

Coral shades range from light, delicate and soft…

Feminine and BEAU-TI-FUL

to vibrant coral-reds…

Fab way to add red!


On to more coral loveliness for your viewing pleasure…

  1. I never consider coral as an accent color until now. You definitely make me crave for some coral colors !


  2. This is well timed for me as i am loving coral at the moment, more sophisticated than pink – its just looks very modern! Fab post xx

  3. Hi sweetie,

    Coral is never my “ideal” color, I never think of coral, but this post is changing my mind and I’m staring to think about it. šŸ™‚

    Pretty, pretty, prettyyyy images!!!! šŸ™‚

    Have a great day!

  4. woop woop! it’s gorgeous. watercolor wallpaper? who knew? i like pops of it as demonstrated in these luscious images above. it is absolutely dreamy with the aqua, and why wouldn’t it be? the combo is from nature for cryin out loud. i think we sometimes forget “natural” colors are not just earthy browns and greens, ya know? just look to the ocean.

    hugs, my pink lady.


  5. I’m wooping. Can you hear me up there?!! My mum used to have a coral jumper when I was little and ever since then I’ve loved this colour. So warming.


  6. liking coral… ummm i think this is a must have color now when im decorating our new apartment in beijing. thanks for all the inspiration!

  7. Hi my friend,

    I agree – a very happy and chic color. And look what other accent color you will find in each and every one of the images – black! Those 2 colors work so well together! Like Mrs. and Mr.!

    Happy, happy to you!


  8. I’m loving these images and guess what… I’m thinking coral as an accent colour to the peacock blue in the bathroom! Thank you, gorgeous lady!!

    So funny because the last few items I’ve bought clothing-wise have been coral (including coral wedges!) – it looks so good with a bit of tan! Such a fabulous summery colour šŸ™‚

    Almost the weekend my sweet! Enjoy xxx

  9. CORAL!!!! that is my favorite colour especially in its pastel shade. It sets the mood for summer. Looking forward to flaunting one soon šŸ™‚
