Pink

Just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past 3 and a bit weeks, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And today, 26 October is Pink Ribbon Day.

So in honour of Breast Cancer, I thought I’d show you some pink images that have caught my eye.

The colour psychology behind pink is that it reduces tension, it has a calming effect and represents unconditional love.

Because of its soft, cosy and romantic nature, pink is perfect for the bedroom. It makes the skin glow with health and what better place to make use of those flattering reflections? As it is perceived as sweet tasting, too much pink can get a little cloying for living and dining rooms. How much is “too much” is in the eye of the beholder. But imagine pink on major areas such as walls and upholstery fabrics or carpeting.

People who prefer pink are the soft, tender friends. Romantic and refined, they are upset by violence of any kind. If you love pink, you are talented but not overambitious. People are drawn to you by your charm and warmth, but you don’t expose your feelings to everyone. While red is assertive, pink is gently and innocent; more subtle, more contemplative, more cautious. You can’t hide behind red, but you can conceal yourself with pink.

Make a pin purchase, buy some products especially designed to support Pink Ribbon Day or give a donation and do your bit.
