It’s Ash Wednesday today. Easter and spring will soon arrive. How do I transition from winter to spring? I add more color. These week I like coral. It comes in many shades. Coral is a color I find soothing and mixes well with just about every color. It’s not overpowering.
In small amounts, the color coral is refreshing in fashion and home decorating. A little accent color to a men’s blazer can make all the difference. For entertaining, an aqua and coral palette is a winning combination in this lovely tablescape by Ken Gemes for the porch of the 2013 Hampton Designer Showhouse. Ashley Whittaker designs have traditional elements with a punch of colorful. I adore everything she does. Sometimes older homes with low ceilings feel dark. That certainly is not the case here with a coral living room that opens to a yellow room. The back wall of bookshelves get a welcoming update with paint. After a long winter, I think many of us in the northeast will be looking to add color to our homes.
