Although natural coral is found in an array of hues, the coral that the colour is named after is red or ‘precious’ coral. It’s on the pink end of the orange spectrum and definitely has to be considered only a highlight colour. A room with wall to wall, floor to ceiling coral would feel really oppressive and overbearing. The colour is stunning when used on a feature wall, painted furniture and in textiles. It’s often teamed with brilliant white and works really well with teal.
