Art & Accessories

Maybe you’re not quite ready to dive into the color of the year head first by changing an entire color of a room. Maybe you want to dip your toes into the trending color by adding a subtler touch. A piece of art can be eye catching and offer a focal point in a room. An abstract art piece may be fun to pull some of the colors from the art and place them into the space by using accessories such as picture frames, furniture accents, curtains, pillows, lamps, and smaller decorative items.

Accent Chair

Accent chairs have a role beyond function and are a great way to draw out colors, complement décor, and provide a focal point to a monotone space. An accent chair in Living Coral is dramatic, bold, and draws attention! To create visual balance, consider adding a pair of accent chairs into your living room.

Living Coral Bathroom
So fresh and so clean! A a pop of coral to your bathroom with a Living Coral vanity. Living Coral pairs well with blacks, whites, grays, and blues. Adding gold knobs or pulls to the bathroom vanity would accent Living Coral very well. That is the lovely thing about vanities, you can paint them and change the hardware for a simple, inexpensive transformation.

When considering if you want to add Living Coral into your home, think about the impact you are looking to make! If you want to add a big impact, consider changing up a paint color in a small room or entryway. Using coral accents in a neutral interior can make the same impact that a painted room can because it is so energizing. If you want to add it in small touches, consider an area rug that has a blend of corals with other bold hues or even pillows and throws. 

Finally, it’s just a color, don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone and try something new!
