Let the decorating commence, with a coral home office makeover! I have been pouring over all these images on Pinterest, of dark greys and shades of white for the main rooms in our new home and then suddenly this image came up in my feed.Coral Office MakeoverI just felt instantly happy and inspired all at once, (with a dash of deja-vu, I have had this saved in my Etsy faves for a while)!
coral wall paintIn our old apartment my workroom was painted in a lovely pale grey by Farrow and Ball and although I loved it, I didn’t stay in there much, always dragging my paper, ribbons etc in to the brighter lounge and spreading out all over the kitchen table. So this will be the one girly room where all my frills, vintage teacups and inspiration boards will live.

    Delicious! I can’t wait to see your new workroom with this gorgeous colour! I love, love, love the Prickly Pear print too am quite taken with the Jigsaw pillow today too :)
    I’m redecorating my studio this week and am covering up my Farrow & Ball Pointing with a brilliant white, definitely craving a bright space too. As like you, lately I haven’t been spending much time in my studio because it was feeling dull, tired and uninspiring! I’m already feeling more inspired by the change, even though it’s not quite finished, and the workout from painting the walls and celing is so energising in itself. Feels good!
    Can’t wait to see your new studio,

    Scrummy, it reminds me of the shades in rifle paper co designs, a coral that works equally well in summer as it would with wintery berries and accessories.

    One of my apartments when I was young and single was painted in various shades of coral. I always felt happy when I walked through that door at night- xo Diana
