Most home decorators can be put off by using colours, against a neutral backdrop bright pops of colour are perfect to inject personality into any home interior.

Coral is a refreshing hue that has its base of orange but is far more elegant and yet equally vibrant and sunny. When combined with teal or aqua, these colours Instantly freshen dull rooms.

Bring together teal and coral to decorate a bedroom. Teal is a hue that combines blue and green, both considered perfect colours for a soothing and serene bedroom. With a few coral accents you have a bedroom that is cool and calm and perfect for any season.

You can also introduce coral and teal hues in a children's bedroom. Bringing together these two colours set the tone for a modern space that can be dressed up or down with just a few accessories. Add traditional fittings or introduce modern fabrics to keep the bedroom up to date with trends.

Neutrals provide the perfect backdrop for pastel shades of coral and teal. Paint walls in a light or medium grey, with white or light grey furniture and bring in coral and teal accents.
