22 Homes That Prove Gen Z Yellow is the New Millennial Pink
When colour giant, Pantone named Serenity and Rose Quartz as its colours of the year in 2016, none of us were prepared for the explosion of Millennial Pink that would follow. Pink went from being labelled as a twee, sickly-sweet colour that only featured in kids’ bedrooms, to the “It” colour of the past two years. And it was in this period that Rose Quartz was renamed “Millennial Pink” - I’m sure as a subtle dig at the supposedly materialistic and dreamy nature of its namesake generation.
Nowadays, you can buy any and everything in Millennial Pink: sofas, cushions, kitchen cupboards, rugs, home accessories, you name it and there is probably a Millennial Pink version of it out there.
However, over the past few months Millennial Pink has started to take a backseat to its younger, more meme-savvy sibling, Gen Z Yellow.
With its bright, sunshine hues, Gen Z Yellow is a ray of optimism and positivity in a sea of dark jewel tones and washed-out pastels. It first gained popularity on fashion runways and is slowly becoming popularised in interiors all over the world.
