Introducing Pink Shades Limited Edition – 2017 Must Have According to Little Greene

I’ve been studying colour psychology during my spare time for several years now, and during my research I found this 1918 interesting article about pink shades: ‘The generally accepted rule is pink for the boys, and blue for the girls. The reason is that pink, being a more decided and stronger color, is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl.’

Whaa wait what? Pink is for the boys? Would you believe it?

Pink is associated to red’s family, which is dominating, strong, stimulating. But pink colour can be taken as both calming and active colour, depends how strong or pale pink colour is. Pink, if added more white, becomes feminin and soft. If we take fuschia or magenta, it becomes dominating and strong.
