We'll leave you with this contemplative photo as we wrap up our color study on pink. Pink has been a facinating color to explore and hang out with. Perhaps the color whose meaning has changed and been reinvented the most throughout the centuries and across the globe. Our closing thoughts on pink? Pink is rad. 💞👍🏼👍🏼
Color is a powerful tool in both still and moving art, and American filmmaker Wes Anderson is a genius when it comes to using color in his films. The Grand Budapest Hotel is one of his most visually stunning films which happens to take place inside of this pink hotel.
We talked about how shade matters with pink and how there is a place for it in almost every room. In this post we are looking at what colors compliment pink when designing with it and found ourselves surprised at just how many there are!
If giggles had a color, it would be pink.
Where can you use pink in interior design you ask?? Well, almost anywhere! It can add a fun and warming statement in an entryway, a complimentary undertone in a walk in closet, a soft and creative look to a kitchen, a bit of playfulness in the dining room, a nice alternative to a neutral feel in the bedroom, something charismatic in the bathroom, or a pop of color that adds a delicate feel or something eye catching to any room.
Traveling can inspire us in many different ways.... seeing things from a different perspective, getting outside comfort zones, overcoming and achieving things you weren't sure you could, and having your mind blown by landscapes, architecture and culture you have never seen anything like before.
We're diving back into our color study on pink this week! Shade matters with pink. And today's pinks are not the cutesy baby-doll feel we used to connect pink to.
Let us talk pink doors for a moment. Playful, energetic, sometimes soft, always charismatic.👍🏼👍🏼
It wouldn't be a study on pink without a shout out to Donald Featherstone, artist and creator of the iconic American lawn kitsch, the pink plastic lawn flamingo! 🦩
Why has pink been creeping into design in the last few years? @indiamahdavi is an architect and designer who points to the amount of time we are spending dealing with cold digital interfaces, and that perhaps we are seeking visual comfort in colors like pink.
Nature never fails to send us some incredible colors to be inspired by. Similar to the Flamingo, Roseate Spoonbill's get there beautiful pink coloration from the foods they eat. Crustaceans and other aquatic invertebrates contain pigments called carotenoids that help turn their feathers pink.
We are seeing more pink rolling into the interior design world this year so it seems only fitting that we would pick this playful and lighthearted color to do our color study on this round.
Happy Monday Everyone!
