2010 Color Trends: Coral
Coral has been coming back in a big way over the last two years – first it was the actual motif – the jagged sea formation. Now it’s the color – a soft orange tone that is finding a home in many places. Coral has a very positive energy and is pleasing to the eye for many. Once thought of as a coastal color, coral has found its place in today’s interiors all over.
Coral is easy to pair with other colors and is very versatile. Brown gives it a modern feel, with a warm undertone. Purple and coral create a lively, spunky feel. Shades of turquoise with it provides an inviting mix of warm and cool tones. White or ivory is always an option with coral for a crisp, clean look. Yellow or green tones give an exotic edge.
Coral is not a new color for interiors, but rather a rejuvenated one. It is best used in a well lit area, and can handle a large surface, such as a sofa or rug. Coral is also a flattering color for most skin tones, and is great for a ceiling, casting a warm glow on the occupants. Try it on one wall, or one item – you’ll be back for more.
