Paint your house. All of the major paint lines have a coral-leaning exterior option, from Behr’s Desert Coral to Glidden’s Coral Berry to Benjamin Moore’s Coral Gables. Tones of coral are popular on Victorian painted ladies and the Art Deco treasures of Miami as well as sun-drenched southern and southwestern homes.

Blush like a pro? Since its introduction in 1999, Nars Orgasm blush has attained cult status and become one of the best-selling cosmetics in the U.S. Makeup mavens describe it as a “coral-peach” that gives a natural shimmer and flush that is flattering to many skin tones.

Go romantic with vintage jewelry. Coral was wildly popular with the Victorians at their most romantic. As a gemstone, coral was fashioned into cameos, necklaces, lockets, and ornaments worn in the hair. Coral was also a traditional 35thanniversary present.

Cruise with cuteness. In 2018, Chevrolet introduced its mini Spark to the Korean market with a bright coral paint job. The subcompact is the smallest available from General Motors and certainly one of its brightest choices.

Pick an Apple of another color. Are you on the wait list for a new Apple iPhone XR? It comes in six new colors, including coral. One tech expert calls this option “bold yet gender neutral” and a refreshing reboot of millennial pink.
