Ah pink – there is no colour like it, well at least Barbie would agree. Through history pink has had some great moments; in the 18th century Marie Antoinette was its biggest fan and today a pink ribbon is the symbol for the awareness of and fight against breast cancer.
Pink has the ability to make dull look brand new and is a great colour to introduce into you home. There are the soft pinks like rose and blush and then there are the statement pinks such as rouge and fuscia, which add an instant wow factor. Aerosmith sums it up perfectly – ‘Pink its my new obsession. Pink its not even a question’.

“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”
