Ms. Pink Loves Pink
Despite the colour being my name I haven't always loved it, in fact I actually used to dislike it due to some connotations which never sat well with me from a young age.
Princesses, dolls, 'fairy tale' weddings, typical 'girly' things. Phrases about making boys wink. All traditionally associated with pink, but that is thankfully changing. As I neared my fourth decade my stance started to soften. I painted the living room wall pink, it looked and indeed felt lovely. Having grown bored of my orange hair, I took the plunge headfirst into pink and I've remained loyal ever since.
Since then my love for pink has grown and I try and have some element of it in my environment. As well as the pink painted wall there is the pink fireplace, pink leather sofa, neon pink shelf edges, pink (and grey) striped floor, hand painted pink design floor, pink wallpaper and a few plant pots to name SOME of the pink I'm surrounded by daily.
And you know what? It makes me happy! (It even makes Mr. Black happy too!).
It's a no brainer for me because it’s a positive colour, full of energy and warmth, but it can also be the bold, brash statement colour you need to add that electric tingle to a room. From the palest blush pink, through baby, Barbie, bubblegum and flamingo pink (take your pick!) to the hottest neon fuchsia, I love them all.
Recently we've had 'millennial pink', which is considered a more pleasing, gender neutral pink. In technical terms, Neon and Fuchsia are more bluish pinks and Millennial Pink is a softer pink with less blue and more yellow pigments.
But neon pink (Of course!) is my absolute favourite!
What do you think of pink? Does it tickle you too?
