Pink is a pale red colour that is named after a flower of the same name. It was first used as a colour name in the late 17th century. According to surveys in Europe and the United States, pink is the colour most often associated with charm, politeness, sensitivity, tenderness, sweetness, childhood, femininity and the romantic. A combination of pink and white is associated with chastity and innocence, whereas a combination of pink and black links to eroticism and seduction.
Pink is a great choice of colour as it comes in so many different shades that can really compliment the rest of your decor. There was a time when the colour pink was seen as purely feminine and the only men who favoured the colour were effiminate. Now the colour is worn by many men in the form of socks and shirts and is known to compliment men who have blue eyes and the lighter complexion.
Below are just some of the reasons why pink is such a popular colour in and around the home. Some find it too bright and glaring, whereas others see it as a wonderful colour that will brighten any room.
During the Renaissance, pink was mainly used for the flesh colour of faces and hands. The pigment commonly used for this was called light cinabrese; it was a mixture of the red earth pigment called sinopia, or Venetian red, and a white pigment called Bianco San Genovese, or lime white. In his famous 15th century manual on painting, Il Libro Dell'Arte, Cennino Cennini described it as being a pigment that is made from the loveliest and lightest sinopia that is found and is mixed and mulled with St. Johns white, as it is called in Florence; and this white is made from thoroughly white and thoroughly purified lime. And when these two pigments have been thoroughly mulled together, that is, two parts cinabrese and the third white, make little loaves of them like half walnuts and leave them to dry. When you need some, take however much of it seems appropriate. And this pigment does you great credit if you use it for painting faces, hands and nudes on walls.
Even some gem stones that have pink hues are very sought after. The pink topaz, Corundum, or pink sapphire, Calcite, Barite-Rhodochrosite, Clinochlore and Rose quartz are just a few that have found their way into jewelry over the centuries.
