Decorating with Coral

Did you know in China, coral is a symbol of longevity? This semi-precious stone is also one of the five sacred stones of the Tibetan Buddhists and symbolizes the energy of life force. No wonder this beautiful natural form is used often in everyday interiors. And although this classic motif is welcome year around, it is perfect for a beach house or summer decorating. Here are some of my favorite rooms and accessories…
