Meaning of pink color
It is almost impossible not to associate the color pink with childhood, feminine, delicacy and romance. But it was not always so. Until the beginning of the last century, pink was a predominantly male color and blue was the color of girls! It may be hard to believe, but that's right. Even the famous London newspaper Finantial Times was printed on pink paper, precisely because it was read only by men.
It was the fashion that reversed this sexist concept of color. Around the year 1920, the children began to wear more comfortable clothes. The traditional sailor suits used by the boys were dyed with indigo color, the newly discovered paint was one of the best of the time. It did not take long for the blue to become male and the pink to be adopted as the color of the girls.
From here to there, you already know. Everything that surrounds the universe of children or women is portrayed by color. Pink is the color number of little girl's quarters and advertising campaigns aimed at women. No wonder that the famous campaign against breast cancer was named October Rose.
Physical and psychological effects
Pink has scientifically proven physical and psychological effects. The main one is that the rose has soothing and calming properties, capable of arousing empathy. They even say that the rose is the color of universal and fraternal love.
Pink is like a mother hug. It relieves feelings of neglect, abandonment, resentment and anger. Science has already shown that people with mental disorders and aggressive tendencies feel more docile and quiet when exposed to pink. So much so that since 1960 the color is used on the walls of American prisons with the goal of making prisoners more relaxed.
The studies carried out at that time proved that the rose has the capacity to cause changes in the endocrine system, producing hormones that, consequently, affect the mood. It has also been found that color reduces heart rate, pulse, and respiration.
Pink is controversial. For some, it should not even be called color, since it is considered only a sub-tone of red. For others, the rose does not enter the color spectrum and therefore can not be called color.
Discussions aside, the fact is that the rose, whether a color or a tone, exists. And as if it were not enough to exist, it still presents itself in different nuances.
Currently 50 different shades of pink are cataloged, from the lightest to the darkest. Among them the most outstanding are the tea, burnt, old, baby, pink, magenta, shock and fuchsia.
How to Use Pink in Decoration
With so many varieties of rose it is difficult to choose the ideal one to compose the decoration of the house. But with some tips this task gets easier. For starters it is important that you keep in mind the desired decorating style.
If the proposal is to create a delicate, innocent and romantic environment bet on the light shades of pink combined in neutral colors, especially the white. However, pink can also be used to compose environments with more personality. The tip to achieve this effect is to join warmer shades of pink with colors like red and black.
