Color of the Month: June - Coral
Pinterest Logo

Our June Color of the Month is the bright bursting color, Coral. Bringing optimism, energy, and excitement, Coral as a color has a rich history. Named for the distinct red, pink, and orangish skeleton of precious coral found primarily in the Mediterranean Sea, its association with remote areas has often made Coral a symbol of exoticism and mystic powers.
Coral jewelry was worn as far back as the Ancient Egyptians. Romans believed wearing it gave resistance to evil. The belief in coral's power as a charm continued throughout the Middle Ages and into the 20th century. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coral)

Coral was also popular during the 1920s when the material was incorporated into Art Deco jewelry.

Today, Coral is used as a bright and bold accent color for art, crafting, furniture, and more. It gives an incredibly bright and fresh feeling whenever it is used. 
DecoArt has many products embracing this bright brilliant color.
