Coral is the new Pink

In the 70’s standard décor colours were dusty rose and teal green.  If you were edgy in the 80’s you painted your living room walls in light pink instead of builder’s beige.  Also light peach was a popular shade for bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens. Thank God we are out of that century.

Now coral, salmon and hot pink, the stronger warmer sides of pink, are on trend.  This I can live with.

For some reason I relish the return to old fashion…I’d wear high wasted pants, bell bottoms and even shoulder pads again…but my stomach turns when I think about actually working teal green or peach into my décor anytime soon.
