Trend Alert: Coral

Coral is a motif that has always been popular for coastal design. Fill up a cabinet, mantle or bookshelf with some coral pieces to create a worldly look. Small coral pieces look great grouped together as well as dispersed throughout your room to create a cohesive theme. It’s also good to note that while real coral was once popular, it’s fortunate for the environment that most of today’s coral designs are synthetic. We love how these rooms below put together a coral theme.

Discover Our Abstract Art

Artwork is one of those finishing touches that brings a whole room together. If your room doesn’t quite seem finished, try adding a piece of artwork to create a finished look. It might sound daunting but Cymax carries a wide range of artwork, including prints and paintings, that will create a focal point in any space. If you have the room, try grouping a few pieces together for a gallery wall effect. Abstract paintings are a particular favorite and can be used as a jumping off point for a room’s color scheme.

To give you some inspiration, we’ve rounded up ten of our favorite abstract pieces, with options ideal for any space:

Red, white and blue is a go-to design formula that is perfect for the holidays. Although it’s a perfect choice for the summer season, classic Americana is a look that can work year round. Pick navy blue and deep red for to create a space that is a great fit for casual family living. However, there are a few rules to follow. Keep most of the space neutral (either gray or beige work perfectly) and add color in selectively. A little goes a long way! Don’t be afraid to mix up patterns with plaids, stripes and florals to create visual interest. See below to get inspired by our red, white and blue decor ideas:
