Take inspiration from nature
According to interior design experts, the starting point for using coral involves identifying the colors that fit it best. Nature is the best teacher. Green as the leaves of a rose, an ashy brown similar to the ones of tree branches and the color of the honey that reminds us of baskets full or ripe apples are some of the colors that make a successful pair with coral.
Other experts also recommend combining coral with natural colors and textures, such as green and wood, which tone down this energetic color and create a relaxing atmosphere. Experts also propose combining coral with various shades of blue – after all, the inspiration for the color of 2019 comes from the depth of the oceans.
At the same time, it’s important to remember that, even though coral is softer compared to red, it’s still a strong color that may become a little boring after some time. Therefore, if you don’t plan to renovate anytime soon, it’s best to use it in small doses for things that can be easily changed later.
