Currently Trending

From interior designers to consumers, everybody is going crazy for coral. While years ago, orange may have been trending, consumers are now leaning more towards orange's softer cousin, coral. Coral color paint can make a statement in any dose, and there's no better color to liven up your home decor with. When it comes to incorporating this fun, new color into your space, these 9 shades will do the trick. 


What the Experts Say

Interior Decorator Scott Sanders in House Beautiful said, "Don't give guests a white room--they probably have that at home. Take a chance on this bright coral, softer than orange and more hip than pink. Very Palm Beach and lobster salad on a summer day."

Coral Reef: "Don't give guests a white room — they probably have that at home. Take a chance on this bright coral, softer than orange and more hip than pink. Very Palm Beach and lobster salad on a summer day." —Scott Sanders Benjamin Moore

Coral Gables: "I've done a lot of rooms for men in paneled wood and leather. Then I'll highlight the back of a bookcase with a bit of lively coral. Men like that color because it reminds them of something to drink. Add an animal print — Stark's Ocelot carpet. Super-masculine and comfortable. And my theory is that a woman looks her best in a room that fits a man like a glove. Think Grace Kelly and Jimmy Stewart in Rear Window. Wow." Keith Irvine Benjamin Moore

Habanero Pepper: "Coral red always works for me. I'll use it in entrance halls and staircases and dining rooms and libraries. Habanero Pepper has an edge of yellow — very vibrant — and I'm vibrant and peppery. I bite back. I never let clients browbeat me about color. I'm not doing beige. I don't like anything that's wishy-washy. When you're 81 years old, I reckon you can say whatever the hell you want to." Keith Irvine Benjamin Moore

Ravishing Red: "Ever since I was a little girl, I've always wanted the red dress. Red — especially the perfect shade of corally, russety red — is so alive and exciting. I'm always experimenting. I love red with white, cream, greenish yellow, soft blue-gray, celadon green. I've even done red bedrooms. It's happy, cheerful, upbeat — like me!" Elissa Cullman Benjamin Moore

Glamour Pin: "I love designing powder rooms because it's an opportunity to do something you wouldn't do in a larger space. For one client, we painted the entire room rosy pink, gold-leafed every inch of the moldings, and did a custom mosaic glass floor in pink and gold. It was over the top. It glowed. And everyone looked fabulous in the mirror!" Jay Jeffers Benjamin Moore

Geranium: "It was not so much the color, but how and where I used it. I painted a client's kitchen cabinets red, with a hint of orange, like a ripe tomato just longing to be sliced with some good mozzarella cheese." Jennifer Garrigues Benjamin Moore

  Loggia: "I would like to think I'm like this shade of Tuscan red — warm and open and down-to-eath, with a little patina. But I'm also impatient and spontaneous. I'm off to Italy to tour villas and gardens in the lakes region, and Loggia evokes all things alfresco — tall cypresses, umbrella pines, terracotta rooftops, limoncello on ice in the late afternoon..."

Coral Pink: "Pink is always on my mind. I just have to find a taker. This client couldn't be happier with her cheery pink sitting room, and her husband was just glad he didn't end up with a pink master bedroom. The pink is completely unexpected — it's the color of borscht with cream — and then you move on to other, more subtle rooms. It's like a cherry in your drink." Mary McDonald Benjamin Moore

Paprika: "This paint has a stri√© effect, very obvious brush marks that appear as it dries. It can take a drab space and give it dignity. Paprika is warm, welcoming, and slightly dramatic — it makes food look great, people look great, candlelight look great." Joe Nye Portola Paints
