Paint Color Pick: Coral Serenade By Behr

The paint color: Coral Serenade (180D-4) by Behr, a peachy rose with a bit of a muddy undertone that lends sophistication.

Why we love it: Coral straddles the fence between pink and orange — it’s more grown up than a pastel and subtler than orange, but still warm.

How to use it: This elegant color has a cosmetic effect on everyone in the room. The soft wash of rose is similarly flattering for traditional decorating elements, like Persian carpets, gold finishes and velvet.
