Color my world–& color it coral!

A couple of weeks ago, the sweet girls Suzy, from Saved by Suzy, & Jessamie from Bird & Branch Redesign , emailed a few of us bloggers to participate in the Color My World Challenge–

I’m SO excited about this!!  Each week for the month of April, we’ll all be adding a new color into our homes–one we haven’t used before.  We’ll add it in decor, fabric & paint–I’ll probably try to paint in every challenge cause I’m coo-coo for Coco Puffs about painting.

I hope you’ll join us on May 1 as we finish the series off with a review and final reveal of the color in our home–and a linky party for you to show off how you incorporated color this month!

You probably guessed my color from my title–I’m challenging myself to incorporate coral into our home!

I know, it’s bold–and I’m excited about it.

After finishing my abstract art, I couldn’t wait to bring in more coral.  For me, this project will be seriously challenging–I love the feel of a mostly neutral space, so I like color in much smaller doses for our main living areas.  It will be a whole lot of fun to bring in some pop here and there!

I love almost every shade–but I’m sure the accents I’ll bring in will fall somewhere between coral-poppy and coral-orange…

So, some eye candy for you today as I gear up.

Oh, this pillow.  How incredibly beautiful.  I’m wondering about a DIY version…

I’m, of course, most drawn to spaces with lots of white, a little blue, and a couple of pops of coral–we already have the white & blues down, I think.

This space makes my heart sing.  For starters, those built in bunks are enchanting–and I love the mix of turquoise and tangerine.

I won’t quite commit to a more pink-coral or orange-coral just yet.  You never know when inspiration will strike.

    I really wanted to choose coral for the challenge but couldn’t think of enough ways to really make it work in the room. I still may do it at some point though. It’s so pretty! I’m sure I’ll get some inspiration from your projects!

    When you perfect that OM pillow, let me know. I’d love to buy one!

    FUN color choice! I’ve seen a lot of great coral pieces at Target recently. Can’t wait to see what you do to bring this color in your home!

    I am a bit obsessed with coral at the moment, it is so hot! Just used it in my master bedroom with navy and I LOVE it! I am really excited to see what you do with it! Great color choice!

    I can’t wait to see how you incorporate coral in your house, it will look beautiful combined with neutrals! I look forward to seeing how you use paint in everything as well!
