More than just a pretty pastel, coral has been plucked from the depths of the ocean and brought into interiors. This cheerful shade has been chosen by Sanderson as a key colour for 2016, and this season the team are pairing it with on-trend blues and greys to bring a new dimension to decorating.
Blending coral and blue brings a sophisticated, Mediterranean aesthetic into the home. Coral is synonymous with spring and summer, but by combining it with blue, it is given a multi-seasonal appeal. Mint is a complementary colour for both shades and introduces a colour pop to this scheme.
Grey adds an edgier side to coral, giving a hint of masculinity and creating a modern haven. Grey tempers the bright shade of coral, yet still allows it to shine. Use cream accessories to soften this combination and introduce textured accessories, such as quilted throws and woven rugs for a cosy finish.
