Color Inspiration Monday: Coral

Do you need some color inspiration on this cold Monday morning?  I never mind winter until late February rolls around.   All you Minnesotans, are you with me?  Today, our color inspiration is coral, my favorite color to wear and decorate with.  Check out my pinterest board, full of orange and coral inspiration http://pinterest.com/jenni_swenson1/orange-and-coral/
Below is a quilt I made with lots of corals and other colors.  I decorated my whole living room around it.

Bright pillows with pops of coral are everywhere.

One of my favorite clothespin wreaths... now at the home of one of my favorite people!

These coral curtains hang in my sunroom...

this lampshade is in there too...

Remember my coral kitchen?  Chosen to match my Natalie Lete plates from Anthropologie.

My daughter's masterpiece from their preschool years.

Another Natalie Lete plate and a cute coral frame.

Nesting doll lampshade with coral matryoshkas and vintage orange flowered ribbon.

The quilt below is one of the first I ever made, 20 years ago!

Coral cushion on a cream bench in my kitchen.

My favorite owl cookie jar, great big coral eyes!

Last of all, great big coral euro shams on my turquoise bed.  Hope these colors brighten your day!


  1. They sure do brighten my day-- now I want to redecorate my house!!

  2. One more overcast MN day and I'm heading to your house for a color dose! I used to plan vacation in March because that way I could look forward to it in February then go somewhere warm!

  3. I am so dying over coral right now! I am on the hunt for the perfect coral blazer for spring. :)

  4. I love everything you featured--it's all so neat! :)

  5. i never leave your blog without a HUGE dose of INSPIRATION!!!! I"m typically not a coral fan but this round up could certainly change my mind!!!!
