Get a vibrant start to 2019 by decorating your home with Living Coral, Pantone’s official Color of the Year. Living Coral has a pinkish pop that will add lively color to any space in mind, and we’re excited about this popular shade making a crucial statement about environmentalism (cleaning up our oceans and protecting the bleaching of coral reefs) and the pursuit of creativity and playful expression. Say goodbye to washed-out Millennial Pink, and hello to this joyful hue of life with these colorful coral accents from Furniture Row and The Showroom @Furniture Row, and some tips on how to best use them in your home.
Choose a painted finish.
While black and white finishes or naturally distressed wooden furniture makes a unique statement in the home, brightly colored furniture is a great form of bold expression. Accent with Living Coral by adding furniture in a fresh paint finish. You don’t need to go overboard with coral items, so a small end table or dresser in your entryway is a great way to add this color without making your home too distracting on the eye. Add the Paige Accent Table, Jenny Bed Bench, and Jenny Dresser for a fun coral finish.
Pick accents that pop.
Selecting coral furniture might be intimidating for those neutral lovers who prefer calmer earth tones, so opt for accents in Living Coral instead. A playful picture frame or vase in this hue will capture your imagination, or maybe get creative with a funky area rug or canvas on the wall. Choose three items in your room, and you can safely introduce this lively shade. Add the Wind Song Canvas, Shibori Rug, or Bozeman Chair with a coral pillow, for some vibrant accents.
Get loud with accent upholstery.
Last but not least, don’t avoid the accent chair. While a coral sofa might feel a little too pink for your professionally designed home, an eclectic accent chair in this bold hue will turn heads for the right reasons. Choose a unique fabric in a whimsical pattern in Living Coral for the perfect accent, or stay simple with a lighter version of the shade. Add the Lucas Chair for bright accent upholstery.
