A perfect pink princess dream :) and YES I think pink is a girly colour!

Blue or pink…that is the question!

Pink silk curtains to die for :)

There has been much debate of late regarding colours and children – that it is sexist with pink for girls and blue for boys. I just get annoyed at such debates, as I see it as a given that pink is a feminine color.

Blue, however is a gender-neutral colour and can be used for both boys and girls. What colour should we have in our children’s rooms, according to the bitter debaters? Gray or brown maybe… so the kids get depressed (and colour-blind at the same time? :) No, let the girls have their pink princess in peace :)

According to feng shui, pink is a highly feminine colour, which explains why girls of all ages have such a strong attraction to it.

Where do you stand in the debate on colours in children’s rooms? Is pink manly? :)

    What gorgeous rooms! I definitely think blue can be used for both, whereas pink can only be used for boys in smaller doses, but I’ve always been into more gender neutral decorating anyways, or at least not overly feminine. I love these rooms though, nothing is too much. Thanks for following me back and the comment on my blog!

    I love the first room – just the right amount of pink and the perfect shade too.

    Hi Maria,
    Well, THINK PINK~~~ I have always loved pink and of course being a rose designer pink roses are my main color of choice. I love it in rooms as an accent but I do have a guest room with pale pink walls and shabby furniture and it looks dreamy. Everyone wants to stay in that room. My hubby looks very handsome in a light pink dress shirt too. He is secure enough to wear it.
    Have a wonderful day.
    Hugs, Celestina Marie

    Hei sann. Mener å ha lest en gang at blått var jentefarge, og rosa guttefarge i Usa for sånn omtrent 60-70 år siden. Ikke vet jeg. Men små jenter er jo veldig glad i rosa, så det må jo være en grunn. Mine tre sønner har nok aldri hatt noe lyseblått rom, og mitt lille barnebarn på 2 år, som har eget rom her hos Bestemor og Bestefar, får nok ikke noe lyse blått rom. Men et rom med BILER/ CARS som tema:DDDDDD Og hvite vegger for at rommet skal bli så lyst som mulig. Og med masse plakater på veggene. Bare fordi han elsker biler. Klem Grethe

    I love that top image with those poofy pink fur pillows! I am not so pc when it comes to gender color–I’m sure if I had a little girl, her room would be pink pink pink, although I have friends who won’t let pink into their daughter’s lives at all. Haha, ultimately I think the kid decides when she’s old enough to say.
