Perfectly Pink

PINKLast week, New York Magazine published an article called ‘Why Millennial Pink Refuses to Go Away.’
Yes, that soft, beigey shade of pink seems to be everywhere right now. If we’re instagram friends, you know I’m very fond of this shade. It seems to pop up in my photos over and over again.

I did an interview Daily Hive about instagram last week, and the first thing they said was ‘Your feed is the one with a lot of pink!’ I laughed, and said, ‘Yes I guess that’s me.’ I never really thought of myself as a pink person. I like neutral tones, but if I do pick a colour, its often blush pink. I’ve done this for years. It’s a very pleasing colour. Soft and feminine, I consider it a neutral in my world.Pink Sketch

On closer inspection, so many things have contributed to this trend. Rose Quartz was the Pantone colour of the year for 2016 (along with Serenity Blue) The Spring 2017 runway shows were filled with shades of pink. In beauty trends, Glossier pink packaging became an instant coveted item with many brands following suit. We’re even seeing pink in architecture and interior design.

My favourite example of this has to be Sketch in London. I can not wait visit this fabulous restaurant. British artist David Shrigley and the designer India Mahdavi update the Gallery at Sketch London in 2014 with pink walls and pink velvet chairs. Usually, the restaurant gives the room to a new artist to redecorate every two years, but this colour is so popular that they decide to keep it. Can you imagine how many instagrams there are of this place? Answer: A lot!!Pink 2Popular stationary brand Poppin added blush to their colours this year, and I am already coveting a few pieces. Even kitchen appliances are available in pink. Last year, Le Creuset launched a collection in a colour called hibiscus, a lovely shade of millennial pink. Will this trend last? A new pantone will surely captivate our attention soon enough, but for now, Millennial Pink is everywhere, and I love it!

So please enjoy this pretty in pink page. Millennial Pink is truly an awful name so let’s call it perfect pink because, isn’t it just that?

      Have a great weekend Laura Jane (PS. my second name is Jane too!)

  • I LOVE pink, too, so I was so happy when I noticed the color trending this season! This means we see more and more pieces, be it fashion or interior decor, in the color that we otherwise might not have seen before, which is cool! I think blush pink is a much more approachable shade, as it’s not as bright and bold as some of the others and is more practical for the everyday, regardless of your profession or age, making it so appealing! Thanks for sharing, girlie, and I hope you have a great weekend ahead!

    • Thank you Veronika! It’s such a wonderful shade, isn’t it? That mixer is SO cute, but we’d both probably have a hard time convincing the boys that it needs to be pink, lol

  • This shade of pink can never do wrong in my eyes! It is wonderful in architecture, homeware, fashion and art (and literally everything else). I am now regretting going for the boring stainless steel smeg toaster instead of the amazing pink one in your blog btw haha!
