Decorating with coral is a “shore” way to add coastal elegance to your home. Here are a few of my favorite finds for kitchen, bath and tabletop.
I am of two minds where coral is concerned. I love the coastal quality that real pieces and designs inspired by this oceanic wonder connote when used as part of a decorating scheme. Yet, I am afraid that promoting coral in any form leads to further depletion of an irreplaceable natural resource.
Coral reefs, often referred to as the "rainforests of the ocean" because of their astonishing diversity, are so endangered that it is estimated that 70 percent will cease to function as healthy ecosystems in the next 50 years unless drastic conservation measures are taken immediately.
So, treat your home to coral-inspired accent but check out www.biospherefoundation.org to learn more about helping solve the coral reef crisis.
