inspiration : Aqua & Coral Red {office makeover}

Hi everyone!

Like I said last week, I'm itching to makeover all of the rooms in our house. Unfortunately, our budget doesn't allow for that. But, there's plenty of room in our budget for coming up with new makeover inspirations. Right now, I'm completely mad for the color combination of aqua and coral red. I blame Anthropologie and this vase I saw on my first (and only so far) visit to the store. 

Which I've got in my "bag" on anthropologie.com right now, I just haven't pulled the trigger yet on it. But I love it!  I love the colors! But like I said, we're not ready for an office makeover yet. We still haven't started the makeover for BB's room, although we did buy the paint last week. So I browsed around on Etsy and put together a cute little treasury of aqua and coral red items to see how they looked together:

And to put this more in perspective, here's a little inspirational board for my office makeover (option 1):

Office Makeover Option 1

It was hard to find the exact colors I am wanting for my inspiration board. But I think you get the idea. Is there a limit to the number of rooms in your house that you can paint grey? Because right now, I want to paint at least 3 rooms grey. I can't help it, it's such a great neutral color to build on. ;) 

What do you think? Do you love this color combination as much as I do?

{and what do you think of my new signature?}


  1. Yes I love it Regina. Coral is one of my favorite colors, and I think it gives just the right amount of "pop" against the aqua. I have a coral print pillow in my shop-I bought the fabric years ago (the whole bolt) because I liked the color so much.

  2. I definitely love the color combination. Hmm... too much grey? I don't think so, lol!

  3. I DO! It is exciting and soothing at the same time. I can't wait to see it when you are done.


  4. Ummm....yeah I am totally hot for aqua and coral right now too!! Love, love, love everything you found on Etsy and that mood board. That office would be pretty suh-weet!! Love the new signature too!

  5. You matched everything so beautifully! I would love to have an office and make it all Chemistry themed with a giant periodic table on one wall. :)

  6. That color combo is amazing!! So bright and fun! I bet you'd be completely energized and inspired every time you stepped into your office!

    And I definitely love the new signature!! :)
