Monochromatic Monday :: Caramel + Coral


Do you guys ever get “stuck” on a certain color? Where you find yourself compulsively pinning, buying and dreaming in monochrome? That’s what coral has been like for me lately (I suddenly have three coral dresses in my closet!), and I’m still swooning whenever I lay eyes on just the right shade. And I’m definitely not the only one… it’s a pretty hot color right now in interiors and fashion, and for today’s board I’ve combined it with warm shades of caramel for a subtle, sultry welcome-to-summer celebration. Slip on an ikat tunic, set the table with brilliant ceramics and vibrant blooms, and fill mason jars with ice cold greyhounds (my favorite summer drink.) The key is to use an ombré of coral shades – layer grapefruit, peach and watermelon to create the richest tonal affect. What do y’all think of coral for summer? Any other shades you’re obsessing over these days?

Hope you all had a great Easter and Passover weekend – this afternoon I’ll be sharing a few photos from my Easter brunch with the family! xx

    Coral is definitely one of my favorite spring colors right now! I’m really feeling the coral and aqua color combo…they compliment each other so beautifully!

      Ooh, I love the idea of aqua with coral… I suppose since coral naturally appears in the ocean, it’s a perfect fit!

    I’ve been craving the same colors. While the rest of the world has gone crazy for mint, coral and caramel have taken over my wardrobe.
