Gray and Coral is a fantastic color scheme, soft and calm, suitable for any modern contemporary eclectic vintage interior and beach houses too. It is great for bedrooms, bathrooms, living rooms and even home offices. Gray and coral are contrasting yet very relaxing, especially when you add beach accessories to the interior. Gray is easy to use in decor: gray walls, floors and textiles; Coral should be used more carefully because of its brightness: a coral red statement wall or furniture, pillow, lamp or bed headboard looks fantastic and not overdone. Get inspired by the ideas below and apply this color scheme to your home!
Gray as base
Gray as a calm base color is usually used as the base for your space – dove grey, light gray and even graphite gray walls and floors are just the thing to set the base. You can also place gray furniture, accessories and artwork, carpets. If you love trendy moody spaces, graphite gray and very dark shades, almost black, is the way to go. You can mix and match different shades of gray or refresh shades of gray with shades of cream and white that will brighten up the room.
How to add coral
Coral tones are usually used to enhance the space. You can incorporate different shades of coral in a variety of ways: make a statement wall or two walls, a piece of furniture, accessories, artwork and textiles. Don’t go for too much coral unless you want to get a super bright space, which is a bad idea for home offices and sometimes bedrooms since that’s where you usually want to work or relax. If you want a lighter and more relaxing feel, go for lighter shades of coral.
