The vibrant coral-infused sunsets North Carolina is famous for can be a source of inspiration for your home. Coral, a popular shade in beach cottages, can take on a bolder, brighter personality serving as a great accent color in any room.

It pairs perfectly with white, soft aqua, navy, natural wood and brass accents. Consider painting an accent wall, ceiling or door; it’s a sure standout that’s both energetic and fun.

“Mixing Amy Howard’s Massey Hill (a fun, funky orange) and Ballet White (her truest white) can create some beautiful coral hues. Play with the ratio to create a soft coral, perfect for an accent color or add a little more orange for a bright, bold statement.”

“Coral is summery and warm, but it’s so much more than just a seasonal shade. I love Wet Coral to brighten any space and/or ceiling in your room.”
