I knew I was going to be getting myself into a pickle when I started with the whole coral color scheme. To be clear, I wanted a pinkish coral (as opposed to a more orange coral which is also lovely but not what I imagined) and that is proving to be quite a challenge. Let's just call my target accent color Pinky Coral tm
After lots of swatches, I've narrowed it down a bit to the few above. I'm really digging the muted color in the chevron pattern but wouldn't mind that same shade in another less ubitiqious pattern (altho it does look awesome in chezerbey's nursery). I like the mix of colors in the abstract floral pattern on the right but there really isnt any coral in it and Im not big of a floral person. I love the mix of pinks and reds and oranges in the key pattern but the fabric is too thin to make panels or shades with. So what is a girl to do?
Then on to the rug. I thought this striped number would do the trick but if I match it with the chevron, I think that might be stripe overload. This pinky "crow's feet" is cool looking but the color might not be right. I'm really digging this mosaic rug but the price is a little steep.
Then again I could get my DIY on with a stencil just like Christi of Charm Home Design did but I'm not sure if I can stomach the thought of hours hunched over right now.
Pinky Coral is a hot color right now so Im 100% positive there will be loads more choices come this time next year but I'm sort of on a biologically imposed deadline here. I don't have time to wait.
