Amazing Space: Coral Craze | Patrick Killian

Mary Gibble & Danielle Trubow

Coral Craze | Patrick Killian

Patrick Killian - Patrick Killian Inc. Interiors - Palm Beach   Orange hues are a natural part of Florida living. But Patrick Killian of Patrick Killian Inc. Interiors in Palm Beach says the color range is expanding to include myriad shades. “Peach, cantaloupe, terra-cotta are on their way back—they may remind some of when The Golden Girls was the new hit sitcom, but I think they are ripe for revival,” he says.

   To obtain this look, explore different shades of coral: reddish, pink, melon, persimmon and rust. You can mix and match hues or pick one and make a statement. Either way, this colorway will help brighten your space.

   Below, we explore a few ways to bring coral hues and undertones into your home, with a few hints from Killian to keep us on point.

 

Kemble Interiors - corals, citrus and oranges galore

Kemble Interiors mixed a variety of fresh citrus shades in this chic home office.

 

Accessorize.

If you don’t want to commit to a big dose of coral, try bringing in the color through throw pillows or an occasional table.

Bright and easy.

If you want to add zest to your home with some juicy citrus shades but don’t want to splurge on new furniture, refurbish a current piece in a fabric featuring the colors—and watch people smile as they settle into your new tangerine chair.

Pops of coral look great against a pale backdrop. Paint your walls in cream or white; then add liberal splashes of color.
