Decor inspo: Millennial pink lamps

Love it or hate it, millennial pink is a trend that just won’t go away. It’s everywhere you look from clothing right through to food, there’s even a café around the corner from my place that’s just opened called Pinkie – and yes, it has pink finishes and a neon sign to match!

So let’s get down to the detail – what exactly is millennial pink!? It’s got a few different names like Tumblr pink and Scandi pink, but it’s pretty much just light pink with the blue removed, resulting in a soft, muted shade.

It’s been on the scene since 2016, so there’s been plenty of time for this trend to filter through from the instagrams of our favourite home bloggers to chain stores – enter millennial pink lighting.
