How to live with the “Living Coral”

The 2019 color of the year is lively, fresh, cool and fun.  We think a splash goes a long way.

What to pair “ the living coral “ with? Neutrals and primary colors. For home furnishing and accent pieces, gold, and teal are a great match, and for a fresh add to our wardrobe colors turquoise, plum and black are a great fresh look.

Why does it look so good ? The idea is old, but it somehow looks different. Is it because we are tired of the grays and the neutrals, or is it because we have a billion choices and much easier way to put up and strip away a wall paper?

Literary in minutes we can change a room with covering one wall in colors, patterns, and textures.

We don’t have to use wallpaper to just cover walls. We can cover a door, shelves in the pantry, create a window border, cover a bench, lamp shades, even stairs.

Our wallpaper choices begin with:

Prepasted, Nonpasted, or Self-adhesive paper.

Big or small as far as color & pattern:

Depends on what you already have in the room, and the size of the furniture. To make a room seem larger and still cozy, go with light colors. To make a bold statement and add a bit of drama, go with bold color.

What is in?

1- large florals in colors like fuchsia, orange and citron

2- graphic patterns

3- texture and embossed wallpapers

4- abstract

5- large black and white patterns

6- water color prints

7- metallics and metallic accents

Or just follow the simple rule, go with what you like.
