I was violently obsessed with pink from childhood until my early teens. Pretty in Pink was the favourite movie and Molly Ringwald the unrivalled heroine. Since this obsession was so thorough and passionate I haven’t been able to appreciate pink since. I don’t know how many times my mum have tried to sweet talk me into wearing pink – “couldn’t you just consider scarves or a tee – pink goes so well with your colours”. She spoke in vain for a long time; hoping to convince me that me+pink is a dashing combination. But even I must admit that – even though I have a hard time believing that I’ll ever paint a room in any shade of pink or long for pink curtains or furniture or pillows or wear pink scarves or jumpers – pink cherry blossoms are beautiful. And I must confess that I like other pink flowers as well…and some pink inks…and piglets.
