Color Crush: Posh, Pink & Unapologetic

by Amy on April 30, 2021

Let’s face it: pink gets a bad rap. Most of us, if we’re being honest, grew up drawn like magpies to shiny objects every time we saw something in a bubblegum hue, but we eventually outgrew it and perhaps even started to resent it.

As little girls, we’re expected to love the color pink; many of us started life in a pale pink nursery and romped around in a wardrobe awash in the pastel color. Once we got a smidge older, only a small percentage of us still readily admitted to loving it, while the rest of us shrug it off as “too expected” any time we see it.

But looking at the color more objectively, is it really so awful?

Whether used in small doses or to dramatic effect, pink can leave a lasting impression, from the wispy baby pink of the miniature nightstand above and armchair below to the bold, bright party palette afterward, it lends a festive air of femininity and, in today’s society, no longer stands for weakness or submission, but rather, a celebration of fun and festivity.

When set against green, as in the case of the candy pink bench rounding out today’s image series, it just plain pops with a sense of preppy-chic happiness.

I like the pink garden bench — you don’t usually see one of those!

I love pink. it might have something to do with my 3 girls and another one on the way in June. I love the pink living room how adorable. I am pretty sure my husband is super sick of pink though!

I have 4 daughters and 2 boys. I try to keep the pink in the girls’ rooms. My husband can only take so much of a good thing!

I do actually like the color pink, and my daughter looks amazing in it. However, I don’t like how the color is shoved down my throat as the mother of a daughter. If it was treated as just another hue, I think everyone would enjoy it more.
