Calming, Neutral Coral for Spring/Summer Decorating
Irwin Weiner ASID - The color predictions for 2014 from Benjamin Moore promote their "new neutrals." It's hard to think of coral, which usually has a touch of brassy pink shining through, as a neutral, but their Red Parrot (see living room above) is toned down and browner than the usual pinky-coral. Look how great the wall color looks with the Guilford Green trim and the Meditation ceiling and shelf inserts.
The coral used by Pottery Barn Kids in the bedding shown above is more traditional, softer and pink for a tween or teen's bedroom. Coral is the official Pottery Barn Kids "color of summer" - what do you think your summer favorite will be?
