First came ‘Honeysuckle,’ a vibrant and spirited pink that Pantone selected for 2011’s Colour of the Year. ‘Radiant Orchid’ was named 2014’s winner, and ‘Marsala,’ a deep and dusty wine pink, in 2015. Rose Quartz triumphed in 2016, and this year we have been inspired into environmental conservation by the buoyant and optimistic shade of Living Coral.
There’s no doubt about it, pink is in, and never more so than this month. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the month when pink is as powerful as it is pretty. One in seven Australian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, and while the mortality rate continues to drop, many do not know how to detect the disease in its early stages. October is an important time to talk about early detection and prevention and offer support to the women struggling through this disease.
In the spirit of pink power, to raise awareness of the importance for regular check-ups, and to honour the women who have struggled with the disease, we’re celebrating all things pink in the interior world.
