I was so excited when Suzy asked me to participate in a series she and Jessamie put together called “Color My World”. The idea is that each participant chooses a color that they do not use in their homes generally, and put it to use in a decor project, paint project, and fabric project. I love playing with color, so I was a definite YES! Sign me up!’
I went through so many colors in my head…. I thought about black. But there is a reason I don’t use it and I knew I couldn’t embrace it. I tried it in my last house once on a dresser. It lasted for 3 weeks and I just couldn’t live with it. So then I selected canary yellow. But after thinking about it, that color felt just too easy. I was too happy to do yellow projects and of course, this is supposed to be a challenge. I knew I wanted something that would complement the current colors I have in my main living spaces, like my dining room and my living room. So after talking it over with my mom, I ended up choosing….
I am really excited about this color- it’s lively, fresh, a little feminine, a little beachy. I think it will bring a nice bright pop of color to our home. And of course the day I made my decision I immediately went to work pinning… naturally. Let’s take a look at some of my coral pinspiration! And I went a little pin-happy, so just click on the word “pinspiration” above to see all of the images I have collected.

So what do you think? Are you sold on coral like I am? It is certainly anting me to give my house a more eclectic and vibrant look. Choosing one teeny tiny color just might be the snowball…. Watch out, Chris! Nothing in our home is safe.
