One thing that us and the interior design world haven’t stopped talking about all year is Living Coral.

Looking for ways to add a new lease of life in households lacking luster can always be hard. Knowing what to change and how to do it can be a struggle for all of us, even at the best of times. Therefore, with the summer season now in full bloom it’s about time to put your stresses aside and take on some advice from the experts at Roomes on how best to update your home.

Pantone’s Colour of the Year, Living Coral has become a staple in stylish homes, whether that be as a subtle cushion print in the living room or a feature wallpaper in the bedroom. Living Coral provides a variety of ways to freshen up your interior this summer.

If you’re wondering how to get the look, here are some simple ideas that could transform any room and add a splash of Living Coral colour that won’t only look great this summer but mature elegantly through the seasons to come.

Living room

With Living Coral expressing great energy through its orange-based tones, it can add real warmth and vibrancy when used in your living room. Using one or two coral furnishings, like a wing-back chair or footstool, is a simple but effective method of adding a focal point.

If your living room is also in need of a workspace unit, then Roomes’ expert team can suggest a variety of ways to incorporate this multifunctional item without cluttering the room. Living Coral can become an accent colour alongside fresh whites and greys to create a clean finish.

Dining room

It’s commonly said that the way to someone’s heart is through the stomach and if this is true it’s important to create the right atmosphere in the dining room. A coral sideboard paired with some minimal gold accessories can exude warmth and luxury within intimate dining room settings. But even some coral padded dining chairs could be just the touch needed to win hearts across the table.


Bedroom designs are where Living Coral can really flourish. There are so many ways that coral tones can be used in bedroom spaces, but for an easy fix, accessories are the way forward. Big luxurious throws and fluffy pillows can give any neutral-toned bedroom a vibrant twist, great for the summer months.

Children’s bedrooms can also get right on trend with Living Coral, but in more innovative ways – under the sea themes and coral reef patterns can be fun to impress the kids with but still give their room a modern feel. Using teal blue and peachy coral textures throughout the room will emulate Living Coral vibes perfectly.
