Pink is perceived as the color of girls. This, perhaps since the 1780s when Marie-Antoinette used and abused in her Petit Trianon at Versailles, whether in the form of feathers, ribbons for her sheep or for her sumptuous dresses, of course. And as the beautiful blonde was known for his amorous escapades, the men of the court dared not wear this color, for fear of passing for "a little too close" to the queen. The women of Paris, for whom Marie Antoinette symbolized absolute fashion, adopted this color en masse, and men abandoned it.

Pink, a feminine color?
Today, when girls and boys aged twelve months are presented with pink or blue toys, they play indifferently with both colors. However, at the age of 5, only one in five boys continues to mumuse with pink toys. It is therefore education that signs the rose as a feminine color. Consequence: in terms of decoration, the rose is not easy to place in mixed worlds. And that's a shame because it is certainly the most positive color. "Seeing life in pink" is based on a concrete reality.
When you look at this color, scientists, using an MRI, observe that you activate the same areas of the brain as when you feel emotions of happiness. In England, psychologists had nursery classrooms painted in pink. Since these pieces show a Barbapapa color, the designs have become more joyful, with bigger suns and fewer clouds. Repainting the entrance to one's house in pink is unconsciously signifying a serene and happy home.
Rose is a tranquillizing color
The French Jacquard
But to have a house with a grenadine heart, what rose to choose for furniture, walls, objects? Personally, I recommend old roses and cranberries, complex and dessaturés. They will be perfectly highlighted if they are associated with decorative elements or walls gray medium, anthracite, persimmon or cream. Fuchsias are also interesting because they are not too feminine.
And if you are the parents of really boisterous boys, you can try to decorate their rooms with the Baker-Miller, a flashy rose: in Seattle as in Bern, the high security neighborhoods were repainted with this rose. As a result, in just a few minutes, the most aggressive detainees become as soft as lambs ... with pink tongue.
