Pantone Fall 2010: Living Coral

Yummy!  Today’s installment of my Pantone Fall 2010 forecast series is “Living Coral”!  And I have to say, I love this color.  For autumn I love it paired with gold or in wool.  I think it’s a wonderful way to bring some pop to the usual rich, warm pallets of fall and see it mixing in with rustic oranges, reds and browns beautifully (doesn’t that sounds like the most gorgeous fall wedding palette?).

There were SO many items I wanted to include in this collection and I packed as many in as I could.  Ultimately I couldn’t resist including that coral, diamond and 18k gold ring, despite the hefty price tag.

  1. Fossil Coral Maddox Flats from Zappos – SALE $61.20
  2. “Marie Loves Fashion” Print by Brooklit – $20
  3. Coral Wall Vase & Hooks by old new again… – $24
  4. Sitting Room Dress from Modcloth – $189.99
  5. Coral, Diamond & 18k Gold Ring from Overstock – $2,054
  6. Skinny Leather Belt from J Crew – Sold Out (Sorry!)
  7. ElePhantastic Pink Nail Polish by OPI – $8

Tomorrow’s color is Lipstick Red!  I’m doing my own take on it and I’m pretty excited about this one.


  1. Hi! I love, love, LOVE this color too! the nail polish is the best. defiantly have to get that color!

  2. Appropriately enough, I’m moving into a new apartment tomorrow where the kitchen is…coral! And I LOVE it! We specifically asked the landlord *not* to paint over it in white like he did for the other rooms prior to us moving in. He shook his head in bemusement but left it for us. It’s so cheerful!

    • Oh how LOVELY! Coral sounds marvelous for the kitchen! How do you plan to decorate it?

      • I’m thinking some prints from jenskelley on etsy will make it quite cute (namely a peacock or 2, and the mug print she’s got). I’ve also got a set of bright yellow cannisters from Urban Outfitters (no longer available, I got them on clearance) and a few smaller prints in tiny frames…I think it’ll all go together pretty nicely.

      • I saw this coral kitchen on apartment therapy that might inspire you! Good luck Hayley! And congrats on your new apartment!

  3. LOVE IT! So, so pretty. I especially love that wall vase and hooks from old new again: their designs are always a favorite with me.

  4. You just knew that coral silk was going to jump into my hands today, didn’t you?
