Coral convert ...

It's taken me some time to become a coral color convert. (Trying saying that fast.) This color inspiration from the sea feels so fresh at home and is making waves in this season's line of accessories.

I love the designer's use of tropical wall art and the selection of coral decor to compliment the botanical images. This imagery is making me want a return trip to Jamaica's Montego Bay.

Even inland abodes are prime settings for coral. The color works so well with neutrals, giving a fresh, happy vibe to an otherwise monochromatic space.

Coral and navy blue are happy companions in the entry above. But, it may be that coral just loves the company of stripes, be they blue (above) or black (below).

Designers are making compelling statements with coral. I love the beauty and symmetry of jewels from the sea and am rather taken with the cell phone case as well.

Oooh, I'm getting the urge to lounge poolside with a little adult beverage - no doubt a result of coral's coastal charm. Alas, I have no pool. Can I borrow someone's 'Slip-n-Slide?'
