I wouldn't describe myself as overly feminine, at least not in any stereotypical sense of the word. I'm the Chief Spider Killer in my house, and my aesthetic taste has never run to the floral, flouncy or frou-frou. But if there's one pillar of girly design I can run with, it's the color pink, especially a pale, barely-there blush.
When used in a modern or even an industrial setting, pale pink is hardly the insipid shade you might remember from Barbie's Dream House. Check out these images of pale pink, looking intriguingly contemporary, and, dare I say it, universally appealing?
