If you’re as much of a “design-digger” as I am, you may agree that this season’s “new black” is coral. It combines modern, retro, and a fresh feel that awakens and inspires the senses, and is also why we have featured this color for today’s “room of the day”. It’s all in the merging of vintage and current pieces: from the retro starburst mirror and mid-century modern chairs and footstools, to the contemporary-casual clean lines of the coffee table, bookshelves, lamp, and grommet curtains. Combining elements from different design styles and eras makes for an interesting, fun, and fabulous space!
