To quote Tony Duquette, coral is my neutral. This color works beautifully with any Chinoiserie pieces-blue and white Chinese porcelain, Blance de Chine, red lacquerware, black and gold all pop against coral. I especially love the idea of painting the back of a bookcase or cabinet. Don't you love this reading nook by Phoebe Howard above? Below, an antique piece takes on a modern Chinoiserie flair with the inside painted in coral. Depending on the rest of the room, you can choose a coral pink like above, or a more orange version like below. I especially like Farrow & Ball Fowler Pink which is quite a masculine coral that works beautifully in a room with brown, green, blue, or gray.
This beautiful display cabinet by The Well Appointed House would be the perfect spot for your blue and white collection.
These color ideas from Martha Stewart are wonderful-a celadon bookcase with coral backs and and all white collection.
