There’s a color I’m loving right now. It’s not quite red, not quite orange, and not quite pink. I call it coral, but as we all see colors a bit differently, you may see it as something else.
Whatever the name, I’m drawn to it for my house, my closet, even my books.
My love of coral may have started with these toile pillows I found at an estate sale for our bedroom. They add the perfect pop of color to this room of otherwise neutral and moody colors.
Not long ago I happened upon another lucky estate sale find, this oil painting that I hung in the hallway just outside our bedroom. The painting is beautiful, but the roof on that house is what really caught my eye.
James Farmer fills his garden with coral geraniums. He spells ‘coral’ as ‘carl’ because of the way he pronounces the word with his deep, southern accent, which you can sometimes catch in his Instagram stories. When I was buying flowers for my yard this spring, I was on the lookout for ‘carl’ geraniums.
I included Juliet’s School of Possibilities in my last book report. I enjoyed this very quick read, and I especially enjoyed the pop of color it added to my nightstand while I had it on loan from the library.
Fabric samples like these are finding their way into my stash.
And my closet suddenly is full of gauzy tunics in these colors.
Finally, OPI’s Cajun Shrimp has to be the best nail color ever created. It’s super popular for summer, but I wear it year around on my toes.
Is there a color you’re loving these days?
