In The Pink -  The Hidden Meaning Behind The Colour March 30, 2016 14:44

We all know pink as being playful, girlie and romantic, but there are many hidden meanings of the colour pink. Pink is mixed using red and white, so it takes on many of the characteristics of those colours too, from the fiery passionate associations of red, to the calming and peaceful influence of white. Even the shade and intensity of the colour pink can alter the meaning.

To illustrate some of the characteristics of the colour pink, we've chosen some of our favourite pink products:

 

Romance

While red represents lust and passion, the colour pink represents a more charming and romantic side of love. The deeper the shade of pink, the more passion and energy is associated with it, while a lighter shade of pink can communicate tenderness.

Our Pinking Tea Party teacup combines the romance of the colour pink with the romantic symbolism of the love heart, making it the ideal gift for a loved one.

Cuteness / Playfulness

The colour pink is associated with childhood, especially little girls, which means it evokes memories of sweetness and innocence. For adults, pink means that you're playful and carefree. You enjoy abandoning your adult responsibilities, and revel in fun and joy.

Our Sherbet Fizz tealight candles will take you back to your childhood, and bring feelings of fun and joy.

Serenity

Pink has a calming influence, and reassures our emotions bringing about a sense of serenity and relaxation. It can help alleviate feelings of anger and aggression, and promote inner peace and harmony. Pink gemstones and crystals are thought to have an inner energy which can promote this calming influence.

Our Misty Rose pillar candle is adorned with pink gems, so is sure to bring a feeling of peace and relaxation to your home, or it would make a great gift for someone going through a stressful time.

Nurturing

Pink also represents unconditional love, nurturing and compassion. It inspires warm and comforting feelings, which is why pink is associated with giving and receiving care. If a person wears a lot of pink, it could also indicate the need for support and acceptance.

Femininity

Pink is associated with women and femininity because it tones down the passion of red, and gives a much gentler loving energy. Pink shows kindness, tenderness and nurturing, which are all considered female qualities.

The pink swirling design of our Candy Oasis pillar candle is brightly coloured and bold as well as feminine.

Tenderness

Pink is a non-threatening colour which gives you the feeling that everything will be okay. It is much gentler than red, and shows tenderness and kindness and feelings of warmth, through its association with femininity and nurturing.  

Our Midnight Pink tea light candles will bring a gentle and tender warmth to your home.
