Millennial Pink: 8 Ways to Incorporate the Color to Last Beyond the Trend

Millennial Pink. What’s that? It’s the latest color trend – that’s what. It is sometimes called “blush” or “delicate pink,” and is a popular shade for everything from clothes, accessories, and jewelry to advertising and home decor. It is a classic, calming shade that is typically associated with the feminine side of the world, but we’re finding that is a myth. Men can love shades of pink just as much as women. Don’t think so? Take note the next time you see a man in a pink shirt.

Cultural programming suggests that when we think of pink, we see it as feminine, positive, fresh, and clean. It is a color that has been underutilized until now. Let’s look at eight ways to utilize millennial pink for interior design.

Accent Wall

If you want to make a bold statement in your room, having a millennial pink accent wall is a great way to do it. The color is soft but bold, so painting an entire room may be a bit too much. An accent wall is a nice way to add that big pop of color without it being too overpowering.

Furniture

A pink table and matching chairs can brighten up your breakfast nook. You want all the furniture in the room to complement each other, so when mixing and matching colors, keep that in mind. Pink goes well with many colors, but white is definitely a favorite.
