Pretty & soothing pink accents for your home

Pretty & soothing pink accents in your home. Read on www.karinecandicekong.comPink was never a colour that challenged me or bothered me before I became a mum to Mila Sienna. In fact, I quite liked a soft pink. Once I became a mum and got exposed to the insane amount of bright Barbie pink paraphernalia available to “little girls”, I really started to hate this colour. I’ve never felt I was a die-hard feminist but I’ve always believed in women’s independence and self-confidence and the forced association of colours & genders (i.e. pink for girls and blue for boys), society was communicating to us on a regular basis really annoyed me.
So I decorated Mila’s bedroom (and here) with a dark grey wall and let her choose her favourite black & white prints and this one from Fine Little Day.

Fast forward a few years down the line…the day we let Mila chose the colour of our front door in London, we ended up with a bubble pink door which in fact, has been a great thing. I love coming home to a place that welcomes me with a bubbly, uplifting pink and I love seeing little girls walking down our street and stopping to look at this wonderful pink door. I had the same uplifting feeling last time I saw this patio. So here are some nice examples of how to use soft pink anywhere in your home…
