Pink… pink room, pink frocks, pink pillows, pink bag and  everything pink… sounds so pinky-pinky right? You must be feeling very girlish by reading everything about this colour. But do you know that earlier it used to be the colour of boys. Yes it’s true! In the 19th century England, ribbons or decorations were often worn by young boys. Boys were simply considered small men. While men in England wore red uniforms, boys wore pink.

Calming effect on criminals

In 1989, police in Huddersfield reported that research had shown that violent criminals could be calmed down by putting them in pink cells. And generally, men fall in “violent criminals” category.

Blue was for girls

Yes, this is what Earnshaw’s infants’ department said in 1918. And at that time they said that “The generally accepted rule is pink for the boys, and blue for the girls. The reason is that p-colour, being a more decided and stronger colour, is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl.”

One thing is clear, colours are not to be specified by gender. They are to be felt, to be lived, to be enjoyed and make your life colourful.
