Pink. The Lighter Shade of Red.

For as long as I can remember, I have loved pink and next to white it is the core color in the world of Shabby Chic. I recently learnt that it is the passion and power of red that is softened with the openness, purity and completeness of white, that combined makes pink.
I find pink to be nurturing, romantic, feminine, calming, innocent, timeless and playful.
I tend to lean towards bluey-pinks and don’t usually like salmon or corral. They are a little too orange for me.
I find the perfect pink has a gentle loving energy whether a flower. A painted room or some fabric. It’s not overpowering but makes a quiet bold statement.
I hope you enjoy this collection of some of my favorite pink photos. Showing a selection of shades and subjects. The overall palette from blush to fuchsia, rose to a lighter shade of red, all come together and are as pretty as can be.

Gorgeous gallery!


I am so inspired by your blog. Thanks for adding more entries!


Thank you for sharing this post. I am currently studying colour psychology as part of my interior design course and find it absolutely fascinating. Pink is my favourite ‘colour’ and I was disappointed to discover it is not technically considered a colour! It is the perfect combination of the vibrancy and romance of red blended with pure, angelic white. So beautiful.
Love the photos too!
