I believe it was the great prophet Steven Tyler of Aerosmith who foresaw today’s pink trend. Twenty years after the band released the song “Pink,” we are still crazy for the color so much we’ve termed it “millennial pink.” It’s the new love we’ve discovered from the runways and on our social media feeds. As the song goes, “‘Cause today, it just goes with the fashion.”
If you’re not so keen on the trend yet, how about integrating it into your home? Make it the pop of color to brighten up your setup, the odd one out of your stainless steel kitchen, or even just the cute incidental in a room. It’s all about being casual these days, after all.
Anyway, if you don’t like it, it’s easy to replace it or store it for another time. Trust us, however, you never know when you’ll be feeling the pink.
I can see this gracing top shots of table spreads. It’s also hella functional as it’s made from cast-iron. Looks sweet but is heavy duty for that secret specialty dish. Available at SM Mega Fashion Hall.
