The Coral Sea

There is something very special about sunny days at the beach.  Warm sunshine, soft sand and cool surf provide the perfect backdrop for relaxing – it’s no wonder that so many people choose to spend their vacation time at the seashore!  Bright, fun colors abound at the beach and one of this year’s favorites is coral – from peachy or pink shades to deep rich coral, it’s the perfect contrast to the glistening beige backdrop of the sand.

Collect a few shells while you walk along the shore and bring them home to keep the memories alive throughout the year.   Surround your bathroom walls with playful sand dollars or add a window mural with beautiful conch shells to brighten the view in a windowless room.  Opt for feathery coral patterned wallpaper for a softly sophisticated look in the dining room.
