Incorporating Living Coral in Your Space – Walls

“An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energises and enlivens with a softer edge.” – Pantone


Incorporating such a vibrant colour into one’s space can be quite daunting. Painting your walls coral will definitely turn your space into a showstopper! Bright walls can be paired with other bold colours throughout the room. Muted tones and colours will also work beautifully with the bright walls.



Having coral-coloured furniture is also a simple, yet effective way to introduce this quirky colour into your space. The effects will not be as dramatic as having fully painted coral walls. Not all your furniture needs to be this colour. You can incorporate it by having one statement piece. There are examples of how this could be done in our inspiration images. Bed bases, sofas, cabinetry and tables are great examples.


You can easily achieve this look without breaking the bank! Head down to your hardware and pick up some paint. You will easily be able to transform an existing furniture piece into a coral masterpiece!


Trends are always changing! Painted walls and coloured furniture pieces can often easily become outdated. If you would not like something so ‘permanent‘ in your space, but would still like to incorporate this trend. Accessorise!


Accessorising can be an easy and inexpensive way to liven your space. Scatter cushions, vases, clocks and other decorative elements will do the trick! If you would like to know any other tips on how to introduce bold colours, read our blog post here.
