Coral motif has been trendy the past years, and as soon as you think it’s going away… something new and cute with coral motif pops up. Coral is still in, and this summer it has also appeared in women’s fashion accessories. I love bringing beach and your travel destinations home, so I am all for coral staying as a home decorating trend as well.

I collected some of my favorite coral motif products for home – both from the traditional and the modern side.

Thomas Paul Coral Pattern Cream and Orange Rug from Domestic Modern starts from $150 and is 100% wool, quality that will last.

Coral Embroidered Outdoor Pillow ($29) from Pottery Barn are great for your back porch.

For indoors check out this Waverly Coral Trellis Pillow Cover ($16) from Etsy.

The coral lamp ($369) from Ethan Allen is one of my favorites, and I have been eye-balling it for a year now.

One of my favorite ways to bring coral indoors is in its natural form, and Pottery Barn makes it easy for you, the large coral ($63) can be easily shipped to your home without a trip to beach. (I rather take the trip to beach with corals though).

While coral has been popular in traditional decorating, coral is also popular in more contemporary design. The modern Pallucco coral table lamp is ridiculously expensive, yet, so fabulous.

The coral candle bra from Seaside Inspired fits well for many types of homes, and it is a great deal for $139 – it will make a wonderful center piece in your dining table or focal point on the fireplace mantel.

Bellacor has a large variety of furniture with coral upholstery, one of my favorites is the Red Coral Needlepoint Armchair ($618).

And last but not least, is oldie but goodie – the Alessi Mediterraneo napkin holder ($60) – the series comes with other coral motif items as well.
