When you consider the interactions one might have with the color coral in nature (say, while snorkeling above a vibrant reef or admiring a perfect sunset), it might make sense to learn that staring at this classic coastal hue can make us happier.

But even aside from its mood-boosting qualities, coral is a psychological powerhouse, with benefits that make it perfect for homes that host a lot of guests.
A cross between lively orange and soothing pink, coral can adopt the psychological benefits of both colors depending on how vibrant or soft the shade is. More electric, bordering-on-red versions can boost energy and sociability, making it an ideal hue for spaces like an entry or bar area.
Pinker shades of coral feel inherently warm, approachable, and friendly. Try it in a guest room for a look that’s beachy and welcoming.

But all shades of coral are believed to share common qualities, too, including increasing positivity and ridding the mind of negative thoughts (it’s even thought to make waking up in the morning easier). But the most surprising quality of coral (and orange, in general) is its ability to stimulate appetites, “exerting a measurable effect on the autonomous nervous system,” says Pantone. (Hello, perfect kitchen color!)
