The Ultimate Children's Design Resource

Design Board: Coral Comeback

This summer, we’re working hard on a slew of fabulous nursery designs—one of which has a coastal, vintage beach vibe that we just love. In order to add a little modernity to the space, we opted for the addition of bold and colorful coral. While scouring our resources for coral-inspired patterns and pieces, we came across all kinds of fantastic accessories, lighting and textiles—if only we could use them all in one room! Not only is coral bright, cheery, unique and natural, it’s also completely gender neutral. Our particular project is for a boy, but since coral patterns come in almost any color, it’s easy to find a way to use it in any space.

    LOVE the mirror! I haven’t seen the new Netto Bedding in person so can’t vouch for the quality but really like the color and design! Great inspirations!

    That red coral chandelier is simply fabulous! I have designed my teenage daughter’s room in shades of red, and this piece will be perfect.

    I’m more of a ‘primary colors’ person and seeing this red chandelier really warmed my heart. A good idea to mix contemporary (red corals) with traditional wrought iron.

    A friend of mine had coral accents in her living room, and I thought it was rather old-fashioned. I guess I was wrong… I didn’t know corals are back!
