{friday finds: millennial pink}

millennial pink

Sonhas Rosa! An old Portuguese phrase for what we are all doing – dreaming in PINK!

It’s no secret, pink is having a moment. Whether you’re wearing it or drinking it (hello rose), it has come to be the defining color of the millennials, so much so that is referred to by many as “millennial pink”. But why?

For starters, this is no longer a color only for the Pink Ladies or Barbie; the softer tonality of Millennial Pink has allowed the color to relate to both the femininity and masculinity of this generation.  Although many are claiming that this is a political stance on the fluidity of gender, Pantone didn’t name Rose Quartz one of the “Colors of the Year” in 2016 for its androgyny alone.  The stressful environment that has become our reality has caused people everywhere to “seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote”

Pietro Nolita Restaurant in NYC has created its identity around the color pink.

As Pantone predicted, Millennial Pink is the perfect balance between a safe neutral and a bold color and has become an essential in interior design. But, this is not just one color, there are thousands of shades of pink; giving the DIY’er the opportunity to personalize pink in their own home.

We are along for the ride when it comes to picking your perfect pink. Below are some of our favorites on the pink-o-meter along with some inspirational visuals:
