Spotlight Trend on Coral

9 Apr


When I see coral, or really anything nautical, I immediately start thinking about crystal clear blue waters, gorgeous lakes and oceans, beaches, vacations, seafood and summer parties.  All things summery are just a few months away now and I can’t wait!  My mind drifts to pool parties, summer clothes, great seafood, and all things nautical.

Lately, I’ve noticed a growing trend in coral-themed designs on paper products, home decor, party supplies like invitations, cocktail napkins and guest towels, and we love it.  Whether you have a beach house or a big city apartment, you too can take part in this gorgeous style.

Have you started thinking about any special event planning for this summer, or perhaps, about events you will be attending?  The calming effect of nautical-themes on products is something that will likely never go out of favor and great imagery that almost instantly creates a sense of relaxation.

So bring some of this look into your home and enjoy some of these finishing touches yourself.  You can start your own coral collection!   Visit our coral collection, nautical products and more for great accent items from water bottles to melamine trays to stationery, coasters, home accents and more.


Best wishes,
