The summer design trend is CORAL! Coral continues to make it’s presence known in every category of home décor this season. I’ll confess I’ve had a bit of an obsession with coral for a little over a year now and I’m thrilled to see how it has surged in popularity! Would you like to add a touch of coral to your home? Let’s take a little tour of all the different ways you can add a bit of the sea to your home!
Pottery Barn’s Branch coral pillow are soft and give a graphic punch of color to your sofa. They run $39.50 each.
I found similar pillows this spring at Home Goods for $12 a piece! I snagged up the gray-blue and crimson pillows, but they also came in taupe, coral orange and turquoise. It was a bargain score!!!
Splash some coral on your floor with these beautiful area rugs. This one below is an indoor/outdoor rug.
Pottery Barn has a few coral indoor area rugs with partial coral or all over coral print.
Coral Bath & Bedding

Real framed Sea Fan Coral can set you back several hundred dollars, but it is some of the most beautiful art you’ll see. The lacy coral comes in white, black, and red, and many other colors that can be dyed.

Today, the UPS man delivered a pair of coral lamps from Joss & Main, very similar to what you see below, to my home! I’m so excited! They need a bit of assembly first, and then I’ll show them off to you!
Coral Place Setting
Invite your friends over for an evening on the deck! Pour the sangria, grill the mahi-mahi, broil the crab cakes, and serve dinner on these beach inspired coral placemats and napkins! They are so pretty and simple!
If you love coral but are conscious of sea life harvesting, consider purchasing faux coral instead. This season Pottery Barn is offering many different types of faux coral that are so close to the real deal, you’ll be impressed AND you’ll be saving the coral sea beds!
