How about a pink lightbulb, which naturally flatters skin tones, a chef knife or even an electrical cord — all everyday household items but in pink! Somehow, seeing them in pink makes them look completely different.
It’s amazing how just the mention of pink can make manufacturers scramble.

I love House Beautiful’s own tribute to pink with their “Six Degrees of Pink,” inspired by the popular Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, where in this case, everything mentioned links pink to pink. Can you guess the steps of how you get from a 46 million dollar pink diamond to Kevin Bacon?
I also like these interior designers use of pink.
