We have a crush on coral in all its sun-kissed glory: be inspired by Pantone’s colour of the year, to create a beautiful colour scheme for your home.
Coral can be energetic and vibrant, or calming and soft, like an element of nature. This shade brings such warmth to a space, and it can be fun to just saturate the room with this deep-pink glow. Like energy shots for your home, this refreshing shade is just the boost you need to give your rooms a bright outlook. Coral is attention seeker by nature: use with confidence and it can make a room sing.
Coral and blue are opposites that naturally attract. For mid-century enthusiasts, it can create brilliantly dramatic moods paired with deep blues and dusty greens.
Coral and turquoise is a contrasting colour pairing that’s guaranteed to add impact.

Another way to use this shade of red is with its colour-wheel neighbours: golds and yellow. Layer in yellow and golds, copper and brass, and rich dark woods.

Soft tones of coral and aqua create a subtle feminine feel. Sweet and oh-so-soft, coral is perfect antidote to winter’s deep and dark colours. Go glam with accents of gold or freshen up with touches of white. For a stylish dining room scheme, combine cool grey and blue tones with dashes of deep pink and warm wooden finishes.

Combine deep coral shades with dark moody charcoal for a warm bathroom scheme with an industrial edge. Fully saturated shades look fantastic as an accent for white and black.
