Silvia Dukes PA, Broker Associate, CRS, CIPS, SRES Actually, I remember that my Dad painted our kitchen this same color.

That was in 1952.

In fact, the colors coral and turquiose were all the rage in the the mid to late 1950s as shown in the photo on the left of a coral 1957 Lincoln Continental and the turquoise 1959 Ford Thunderbird (and it's coral mate on its right).

It looks, to me, to be not so much pink as less orange.

As a former marketing guy, I was noticing that orange was everywhere all of a sudden and wondered if that trend would adjust.
