“Vibrant, yet mellow PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment…. Representing the fusion of modern life, PANTONE Living Coral is a nurturing color that appears in our natural surroundings and at the same time, displays a lively presence within social media.”
I love reading their color descriptions, but I’d just say Living Coral is a lighter red with a hint of yellow, without being pink. It’s an easy color to work with as you can play with different shades and intensities together, and it works beautifully with watery colors– shades of blue and green.
Here’s how you can start to add Living Coral into the baby world and get started in the new year totally on trend.
These are my favorite play kitchens… mmm… ever. They are stylish, timeless and heirloom quality. This is the piece that will get all the play and then be stored in the basement for your grandchildren. The kitchens feature nontoxic finishes and are made in the USA from Baltic birch and North American maple.
Milton & Goose makes two models. The first is the Classic Play Kitchen, which comes in Gray and soon in White as well. $800
The Essential Kitchen doesn’t have the stove hood, but I’m sure it gets proper ventilation. $650
In addition to being the perfect setting for countless hours of imaginative play these are guaranteed to be Instagram superstars.
Do I call it official now? Has “modern baby” taken over the baby space so much that it’s just about the default? Pottery Barn has a new brand in the family, and Pottery Barn Modern | Baby is going to make shopping for your modern nursery even easier than ever.
Now their furniture collection includes familiar silhouettes like Babyletto’s Lolly Crib, but also adds many exciting new shapes and styles.
The Sloan Crib also comes in white for a totally different, minimal look.
The Aiden Crib is another exciting new option with it’s solid form and chrome trim!
The Sloan Bookcase and Sloan Toy Chest are just two playroom pieces that are part of the storage collection, and the Pottery Barn Modern | Baby also includes tons of decor items to not just furnish, but finish the entire nursery.
I never used a lot of Pottery Barn in my modern nursery design here on the blog over the years, but I know that will all be changing now. Woah.
I admit, even a month out, I’m pretty excited for back to school. I was able to go online at Target, enter in my children’s schools and have the contents of their school supply lists delivered right to the house without having to search the store for each item in all the required colors and quantities… game changer!
But even if you’re not ready to get back to school just yet or if your kids aren’t old enough yet, the Hearth & Hand with Magnolia collection at Target has plenty of lovely “old school” items to help get you in the mood. I’ve included my affiliate links to find the products.
