January is often associated with gray skies and snowy weather, but our color of the month couldn’t be any hotter: Coral. Inspired by Pantone’s Color of the Year, this hue gives any interior a little hint of the tropics. Coral has become a favorite of designers and bloggers for its ability to add sunny warmth to a room, much like a yellow or an orange but not as bold. You can also tone down the color further by opting for pastel shades, or one with a neutral undertone. Curious about adding a little coral to your décor?
