{31 Days of Coastal Style} All Things Coral!


Yesterday's faux coral tutorial left me with coral on the brain, so today I thought I'd share a "roundup" of beautiful decor for the whole home, all starring this beautiful sea creature! (yes, despite it's "tree-like" appearance, coral is not a plant, but an animal!)


For the dining room:

Set a lovely coastal table-- or even a picnic-- with this three-piece melamine dinnerware set from Wayfair!


This gorgeous 5-light coral chandelier from Ballard Designs is definitely on my dream list! Top the bulbs with sisal or burlap shades, and hang it over a rustic farmhouse table for the perfect beach house dining room!


This handmade turquoise glass coral dish (from Uneek Glass Fusions on Etsy) would make a stunning table centerpiece all by itself-- even without anything in it!


For the living room:

Brush up on your knowledge of marine biology, and beautify your walls at the same time, with this framed coral species chart from Wayfair.


Bring coral into your home on a large scale with the Coastal Living Frosty Green Coastal Rug (also from Wayfair).


The Coastal Retreat Wayfarer Coral table lamp (from Wayfair) is the perfect accent to a beach house living room.


Cozy up your couch with throw pillows featuring what else, but coral-- like these gorgeous handmade ones from ByTheSeashoreDecor on Etsy.


For the bedroom:

Cuddle up in coral at night with the C&F Island Reef bedding collection (online only) from Belk.


Or, if you prefer a more monochromatic approach to sleepytime, go with the Coral Black and White Bedding set by Victor Mill!


Free up space on your bedside table with a pair of these coral sconces from Caron's Beach House.


For the bathroom:

The Coral Reef shower curtain (from Overstock) provides a pop of beachy color. It would look fantastic paired with glossy white bathroom cabinetry! (Paint the upper walls a pale turquoise above white beadboard wainscoting, and add the bathroom rug pictured below, to bring together a cheerfully coastal bathroom!)

The Coral Reef and Water area rug from Pure Home is perfect for drying your toes off after a refreshing bath!
Whether you prefer to keep things neutral, or just want to tone down a room full of bright color, the Coastline bath accessories set (from Bed, Bath, & Beyond) is the perfect choice!


And one more:

Don't forget coral for the holidays! When it comes time to set up the Christmas tree, deck it out with this beautiful nautical tree skirt from Wisteria!


So now I want to hear from you: would you ever deck out a whole room with one theme (like coral? or cowboys? or Hello Kitty?)? Or do you prefer to keep your accents subtle and sparse?










P.S. Me? I'd do it for a bathroom, maybe (I do really love the coral bathroom accents listed above), but anything else seems just, well, overwhelming!
