about millennial pink…


via fantastic frank.se

recently i’ve came across a lot of similar hue of pink that is very soft and pale. from wrapping paper, to book cover, to sneakers/sweatshirts… to water bottle. later on i learned from my millennial colleague that this pink is the ever popular millennial pink.

hmm. not fair. this is a such elegant and chic pink. i don’t even want to google what “80s pink” looks like.

as much as i love the gray-white-black color palette… i am really obsessed about this pastel pink. such a calming and cheerful color (? can these two characters co-exist).

what is your millennial pink?

this must be the most IT blue this summer season. now with the discovery of the blue pigment that could help to cool off the building – the vibrant blue will not only be spotted from runway but even to the building rooftops!

a bright blue pigment discovered in 2009 by OSU chemists which has high solar reflectance indicates that this ‘cool pigment’ could be used in a variety of exterior applications by reducing surface temperatures, cooling costs, and energy consumption. as a result of this testing, Shepherd Color Co. has licensed the patent for commercialization efforts.

learn more about this vibrant blue – “YinMn blue” – here.

the spring weather in philly has been pretty inconsistent so far: you may have a super beautiful 70s day on friday and then here comes a gloomy 50s raining day over the weekend. hello mr. spring!

i am so looking forward to having a consistent 70s at least three days in a row (am i asking too much?) so i can finally put on white sneakers.
