Dive into Coral Reef. No Swim Lessons Required.

Summer gives us a refreshing chance to cleanse, renew and brightening our mindsets!

This season can bring us a new outlook on life and the perfect match for that bright new attitude could be a vivacious new color for your favorite room in your home!

From decorators with a contemporary style to those with a love for the traditional look, Coral is a versatile color to brighten any space. And guess what? You can find that perfect hue in Coral Reef, Sherwin Williams’ 2015 Color of the Year!

Choosing such a bold color to renew their look may leave some wondering how to embrace the color without overpowering the room.

Here are our 5 favorite items to pair with Coral Reef (SW 6606) this spring:

 1.)  White Wall Mirror

Hanging a couple mirrors throughout the room can lighten the space and add depth, making it feel bright and spacious. Adding mirrors gives the room lightness, and it can balance the bright tones of the coral color!

A white wall mirror brings an interesting touch to break the pinky-orange coral color on your walls and can help moderate the intensity of the color.


2.)  Garden Roses

Adding fresh flowers to a space breaths life into the air! This summer, garden roses are all the rage and you can find them in the perfect white, pink and coral hues to pair with the Coral Reef you’ve painted on your walls.

You can find these floral arrangements at your local supermarket, farmer’s market, or even fresh out of your own backyard!


3.)  Light Grey Furniture

Coral and grey are one of this summer’s most popular color pairings. Light grey furniture pieces can keep the space light and airy without weighing down the brightness of the coral with a deep or heavy color.

If you’ve already got a favorite chair (we know, it’s perfectly molded to your seat!), why not spruce it up this spring with it’s own fresh coat of  warm light grey paint? Try Sherwin Williams Sedate Gray (SW 6169)!


4.)  Woven Baskets

Tan woven baskets can bring extra warmth and a comfy feel to your home this spring, and bring out the pink and orange tones in your new coral walls! Our favorite part about these baskets? Fashionable storage space!


5.)  Coral Throw Pillows

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the fruits of your labor on comfy throw pillows that bring the color scheme full circle. Small accent pieces like these pillows can tie in the coral color to your room without overpowering the room in a sea of pink tones.
