Once all natural light has faded, the coral walls of the bathroom appear a pink shade of salmon.

This is especially important when coordinating fabrics, tile or wall covering.

Pops of coral stand out in this living room’s black and white color palette. Designer Mariah O’Brien loves to begin with a white base, adding bold hues in the form of accent walls and accessories for a striking palette. Mariah’s secret? “The whites I like to use showcase the colors, upholstery, fabrics and art in the room without competing with the wall color. If and when our clients need a little change, it is much easier to change out the window treatments, pillows and accessories than to have to repaint an entire room,” says O’Brien.
For a play on masculine and feminine style at the room's entry, rustic logs were cut to size, sanded, then painted with circles featuring different shades of blue as well as pink, yellow, coral and purple. While the rustic texture of the bark is masculine, the poppy pinks and corals add feminine flair.
