Color Feature: Millenial Pink

Part rose quartz, part bubblegum, “millennial pink” is having a major moment right now in the design world.  It’s soft, subtle, warm, and feminine.  We are loving it paired with crisp whites and clean lines, and find it the perfect complement to mid-century modern styles.

It may be a step outside of the box for some, but we are so on board with this color trend!  Are you?

I love the softness of Rose Quartz because it’s so subtle.  But, a little goes a long way, especially in the pretty softness of these dinner plates.  And I love the pink himalayan salt in the candle holders to tie the whole look together!

My daughter, Jillian, sent me this picture to feature for our Rose Quartz blog post, and I had to call her because I couldn’t figure out what the rose color product was.  This beautiful flower looked so real, I had no idea that in fact it was a napkin ring!  Just made me love it all the more!

These glasses remind me of my grandmother’s house.  A pretty pale pink cocktail glass that just looks so elegant!

This sweet little stool in such a soft pastel is a pretty accent for the bold mirrored dressing table.

Remember ruffled pillows??  Come on, I know you had them!  A beautiful look on a vintage piece.  Add a special crystal chandelier and you have a perfect dreamy bedroom nook.

I don’t know what I love more, the color, or the expanse of the “headboard wall”.  And, the built-in light switches keep everything elegantly within reach.  Such a soothing way to end the day…

What Makes “Pink” the Perfect Color for October

About a month ago, a very dear friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer.  In February, she had her annual mammogram which showed up normal, but by August she noticed a “small dent” in her skin.  Because of her keen awareness of her own body and her diligence in having her annual mammogram, her cancer was caught in the early stages and could be treated with surgery and radiation.  Nonetheless, breast cancer sucks.  Yes, it sucks.  Not a ladylike comment but there is nothing ladylike about breast cancer.  It can happen to any one of us.  My friend had no risk factors, yet she has it. 

 This month is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  According to the World Health Organization, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, marked in countries across the world every October, helps to increase attention and support for the awareness, early detection and treatment, as well as palliative care of this disease.  I bet every one of us knows someone that has been affected by this terrible disease.  So, this month take a minute and do your own breast check – go get that mammogram you’ve been putting off!  Remember, early detection is the key to a successful recovery!

So, today my blog is to “think pink” for the cause.   At the end of this blog, you will find a link to Breast Cancer Organizations.  I am making my contribution in honor of my dear friend.  Please join me in support of women everywhere.  We respectfully ask for your support, no amount is too small.  Let’s wipe this disease out in our lifetime so it will never attack our daughters and their daughters after them!

Time to PINK things up!
