About the meaning of “sakura

The blooms burst into colour and kaleidoscopic cherry blossoms erupt all over the country, filling ornamental parks and framing city canals. Peak pink season is usually between late March and early April – however each year can vary. In SpringSakura blanket the Japanese landscape, painting the country with its gentle pink hue.

As a traditional symbol of Japanese culture, Sakura is regularly used as a source of inspiration and permeates Japanese paintings, film, poetry and much more. The Sakura flower has continued to blossom in Japan since ancient times and it truly represents the Japanese spirit. You can even see the Sakura flower stamped onto the 100 zen coin.

More about the pink color trend

We all remember about Millennial pink as one of the biggest color trends ever, started five years ago with the Pantone Rose Quartz color of the year ( do you remember this post? ) and become mainstream a couple of years ago. Millennial Pink took off as a design trend as it was the perfect Instagram-friendly color, so its popularity raised in parallel with the huge growth of the social media. Times are changed and it is very interesting to see how this color trend is shifting, from one side towards softer hues of pink, on the other sides to brighter ones recalling the Y2K pink aesthetics.

Starting from the concepts of holistic design and designing for well-being we explored last month, the choice went towards a very soft pink – well represented by the cherry blossom, and the Sakura aesthetics.

SAKURA PINK COLOR TREND 

HOW TO USE IT IN INTERIORS

 

No two pinks are the same and this can be said for Sakura Pink; from palest petal to blush pink. Words to describe shades of pink; rosy, dusty, sugary. So pick a pink that is perfect for you!

A lighter pink lends itself to softness, innocence, delicateness, nurturing and tranquility. Nowadays pink can be used as a so-called neutral and is an alternative to beige. The colour can be used alongside neutrals, it can also be paired with green or blue or springtime pastels. Combining pink with darker colours such as dark blue, dark green, black or grey, adds strength and sophistication. A stronger pink can be used as a signature style for interior designs, especially to create original concepts, shop designs, cool spaces designed to leave a mark.

The versatility of the colour pink means it can be used in just about every room: enjoy our gallery of inspiration and follow @italianbark to explore more.
