Ah, “Millennium Pink”. This color has been everywhere since 2012. From ads and packaging from companies like Glossier, Acne and Thinx to shelves in just about every store you can think of – millennial pink is the most popular color for styles and designs right now. Here’s how to add millennial pink to your home. When the summer of 2016 began, the pink name “Millennium” started to pop up in large numbers. True pink shades vary – from pale bubblegum to blush, almost coral and somewhere around faded salmon.
In The Cut’s exhaustive study of the rise of Millennial Pink, the authors point out that the color doesn’t go anywhere for many reasons, perhaps most importantly it’s a compliment and a sales. The color has also become androgynous, which is one of the reasons why its popularity bleeds into home design and decor.
Don’t worry, think. While millennial pink is the most popular color of the moment, it has staying power. Colors that differ from silhouettes and shapes in designs and clothing will still look good when the trend is long gone – as long as it works with the overall ambience of the home.
