Happy Pink Tuesday! Did you know that according to astrological traditions in Thailand, pink is the lucky colour for Tuesday? Based on this Thai tradition, each day of the week is given a lucky colour. In fact, it is quite customary for Thai people to dress according to these colours. I can just imagine everyone in Thailand all dressed in a pretty pink today.
It’s amazing how much symbolism is tied to colours. Aside from symbolism, colour connects us to history, even political parties. Remember the Avocado green kitchens that were so popular in the 1970’s? If we were in Thailand, Wednesday would be the day to celebrate green!
But let’s think pink. How about a pink kitchen? That was the trend in the late 1950’s. I searched for a more modern take on a pink kitchen, but I have yet to find one. The one below is very feminine. According to a news article, this Chicago kitchen has not been touched in 59 years. It’s immaculate! The house was sold in February, 2015, so I imagine it has undergone some updates.
Aside from the bedroom, kitchens are one of the most used rooms in a house. It’s an important room too. We use it to cook meals to nourish ourselves and our loved ones. We also use it to entertain. Thanks to the open concept kitchen, the new modern kitchen makes it easier to host a party and be with all the guests.
The kitchen below is so pretty. I’m a huge fan of gingham so I adore the use of gingham on the ceiling. The high ceilings and open concept helps this kitchen to pull this off. I love the baskets that are casually resting on top of each other. I could cook in here any day!
Does your apron coordinate with your kitchen colours? Have you ever purchased an apron to specifically match your kitchen decor? I have had a number of customers admit that they do like to have their apron match their kitchen. And why not? I think that’s fun and totally inspiring.
Today I’m featuring one of my favourite Crumb Designs apron that would match perfectly with a very stylish turquoise blue kitchen. I could totally see myself cooking and entertaining in this kitchen wearing my Audrey Apron.
