What exactly is Millennial Pink? It is not quite bubble gum, not peach and certainly not mauve (sorry Blanche and Dorothy). At 1502 Fabrics, we simply call it blush; soft, feminine, earthy and pastel. Blush is a pink that isn’t a pink. It’s also gender friendly, youthful and can be used across generations.
Add blush to your neutral color vocabulary.
It could be considered the most flattering shade in the rainbow, afterall, pale rosey hues have long been known as a design failsafe. Blush is proven to be mood-lifting and because it’s so light and easy on the eyes, can be used in large swaths from upholstered sofas to an entire wall of drapery.
The popularity of the color blush came about in part due to Instagram; the social media platform known for its use of filters and our 21st century’s impatience for seeing the newest trends, first.
This season, we bring you many blush options for the home. Shown above are a collection of new fabrics and trims (trims from Europatex) from Magnolia, Waverly and Kate Spade. From one of our favorite designers, Kate Spade New York for Kravet, comes blush fabrics in a variety of soft velvets, woven textures and chic prints such as Boldstroke.
Blush aka “millennial pink” pairs gorgeously with navy, gray, gold and especially neutrals. See below how perfectly it blends with beige and taupe?
