Tickled Pink

By Josephine Marsh on

The most anticipated movie of the year is released in the U.K. tomorrow making the future very pink and here at B&G we couldn't be more excited!

When you think about the colour pink, it's possible you're imagining little girls in pretty dresses in a uniformly pink bedroom playing with their favourite Barbie.

It's been overwhelmingly associated with all things feminine in the not too distant past but, until the 18th century, pink was considered a masculine colour thanks to its mother colour red representing activity, passion and aggression (ooh err).

Now the world has reclaimed pink for all and isn't that just wonderful? Especially when Ryan Gosling is involved 😍

Am I shamelessly trying to sell you pink things because of Barbie? Yes, yes I am. But you've read this far so I'm going to assume you're ok with that.

If not, sorry for all the pink that's imminently headed your way... 

Pink items mood board

Hyper-bright shades of the colour have been trending for some time now. In part, down to the challenging times we've recently faced.

Pink inspires optimism, positivity and more than a sprinkling of sparkling energy. 

It translates into empowerment and maximising expressive possibilities... and don't we all need more of that?

Visit the Barbiecore collection to see how you can incorporate the colour seamlessly into your own home.

Much love,

Jo xx
