Bring "Joy" in to Your Home by Decorating with Coral and Salmon

As we are in the middle of Summer I wanted to touch upon decorating with the Salmon and Coral hues. There is something about these colors and Summer that put a smile on my face. 

There seems to be many color meanings for the colors Coral and Salmon. While some take Coral to represent loyalty and creativity others say it stands for passion and desire. As for the color Salmon it signifys good health, youth, joy as well as a passion for life.

If you like the said colors take the plunge and go for a faux grasscloth in coral or paint a focal wall in Benjamin Moore's Passion Fruit. If these ideas are too bold start off with a few throw pillows to bring the color in to your space. Introducing the colors in to your current decor is a lot easier than you think.
