It’s Spring – Think Pink!


Pink is a pale red color, which takes its name from the flower of the same name. According to surveys in Europe and the United States, pink, especially when combined with white or pale blue, is the color most commonly associated with femininity, sensitivity, tenderness, childhood, and the romantic.  Pink is sometimes associated with extravagance and a wish to be noticed. We just call it “lovely” and perfect for using when wishing to spruce up your beach home interior.
