Psychology of Pink
Pink, a delicate color that represents sweetness and is associated with bubble gum, cotton candy and all things sugar and spice. Whatever shade you are more drawn to, will represent different qualities. Pastel pink gives people a sense of calm and evokes positivity. Light pink has a slightly stronger red tone and has been known to soothe feelings of anger, while darker shades of pink are proven to heighten feelings such as warmth and romantic emotions. The closer the shade is to orange, the more fun and playful you will feel. Overall, pink offers inspiration and renewal - add accents of this beautiful color to your day to live a more balanced life.
When it comes to all things color, we always look to Pantone - their spring/summer color palette of the year includes some of our favourite shades of Pink. From soft and powdery Gossamer Pink to vibrant and always visible Innuendo Pink. Explore for yourself.
The History Behind the Color of Perfection
Let's go back to 800 BC when a Greek botanist named the color pink after the ruffled edges of carnation flowers. In the 18th century, both male and female aristocrats wore this color as a symbol of their class. Once the 20th century came around, men started to wear darker colors to reflect their service in World War II, while pastel colors were rebranded as feminine, as part of a postwar effort to remove women from the workforce and back into traditional housewife roles. This color has been widely used to symbolise the birth of a newborn girl or the most romantic day of the year. Since the 1990s, pink has become a more gender-neutral color and used as a symbol for breast cancer awareness and Pride.
