    I LOVE coral, it is such a vibrant colour! It goes so well with the Sahara Dust colour, I think I would also pair it with a cobalt blue.

      Oh yes it would look amazing with Cobalt Blue, very Mediterranean.

    We painted our lounge in a similar colour in our first home. It was so warming and cosy. Love vibrant colours like these for homes

    Well you know you’re old when you’ve seen every trend in fashion, home decor and general culture come in at least twice!! I did coral in my bedroom of the first London property I bought when I still lived in the UK in erm *cough* the late 90’s. (Our little secret!) It really is SUCH a happy colour isn’t it?

    Ooh I want to see what Sunset in Provence looks like on a wall, it looks like such a warm colour on screen. The other 2 colours look more muted so would suit most properties

      I get so excited when I see such lovely warm colours, I would love to be an interior designer – it would surely be cheaper than redecorating your own home every time don’t you think?

    Oooo coral is so pretty. I hadn’t thought of putting it on the walls. Certainly makes a statement!

      It does, doesn’t it? I used to have it in my old kitchen on one wall and it looked great.
