At first blush, pink is the sweet shade of cherry blossoms and just-pinched cheeks. But the color can have impact. Pink can be punk. Look to the bold magenta accents of Mexican architect Luis Barragan, or the splashes of fuchsia in spaces such as the Madonna Inn on the California coast. Even in lighter tones, the rosy hue can be cool and not-so-lady-like. For Pietro Quaglia, owner of the all-pink Pietro Nolita restaurant in New York City, growing up surrounded by the color on Italy’s Ligurian coast, where many a building boasts a pale pink facade, was a constant inspiration. “Pink - especially pastel - is a chic and elegant color. It exudes a sense of happiness and joy,” he says. Here are some of our favorite moments in decorating, travel, and around-the-world finds.
