Pink Color Theory

How to use Color Psychology to Create an Emotionally Healthy Home

Anna Sotnik

“Good design means choosing the right colors to go with your existing furnishing, and not buying everything new and throwing out all your applies possession.”

The pink color today is seen as a feminin color, soft, girlish and vulnerable, but it wasn’t always like this. In 19th century England, pink cloth was often worn by young boys; boys were simply considered small men, and while men in England wore red uniforms, boys wore pink. In Japan, pink is perceived as a masculine color of young warriers who fall in battle in the full bloom of life. In the latest 18th century, pink  was recommended as a bedrooms color for gentlemans.

Modern fashion designers try to correct this perception, but yet without much effect. Today, a boy or man can’t wear pink without it being some kind of statement. Many people still think that pink color encouraging them to show themselves as soft, sensitive and vulnerable. Home remains the only place where you can feel confident with this color today.

I think that pink color it’s a “must” color in any house. Pink brings soft and kind infusion of energy to any space. This color has a calming effect on our emotional energies and can relieve feeling of anger, aggression and stress. A small chair, cushion or pink orchid will soft any environment, calm the mind and bring back good and positive memories.

Pink is a delicate color, sweet, caring, kind, romantic and comforting. With pink the world is always look better. 

The color pink gives the feeling that everything will go well, but too much pink color in interior can prevent seeing the negative aspects of reality which can create weakness and can make you forget your responsibilities.

Hamid, 1989, found that the effect of pink room color on gross motor activity of children significantly increased physical strength and positive mood when compared to a blue room (Hamid, 1989). 

Pink is one of the most calming colors and is a perfect choise for a nurseries and kid’s rooms. You can always combine is with brown, beige, warm grey, white, light yellow and blue.

“Pink color brings back childhood!”

Some of us assosiate pink color with childhood, with a friendly, familiar place where there are no worries, where you are never lonely, always loved and accepted.

Some prison cells in the USA, Germany, UK, Austria and Poland  are colored pink in the hope to reduce agression. In Switzerland, 20% of prisons and police stations have at least one pink cell. It’s a called “Baker-Miller” shade, after two US Naval officers who first studied the effect of pink walls on prisoners.

One of the researchies in Switzerland found that pink paper increase the response rate to surveys. They found that 12% more people filled the pink paper surveys than any other paper colors.

it’s obvious, that colors influence our mood and behavior much more than we realize.
