Even if you haven't heard of it by name, you've seen it everywhere: It's that particular shade of pink — mingling with tones of beige, blush and peach-y salmon — that has taken over homes and mood boards everywhere. Of course, we've had a passion for pink before it was considered très chic. (Hello, Pop Rocks Cosmopolitan!) Here are just a few of the ways pink has inspired us over the years...

 

1. With some perky petals to brighten the room.

4. Or on a gorgeous ombre wall, the trend is definitely not just for our hair.
