Norwich City Football Club has been in the news recently having taken the decision to paint their away changing rooms in pink. Often regarded as quite a strongly gendered colour, pink also has some perhaps surprising characteristics.
There is a colour known as “Drunk tank pink” which has been proven to calm down violent prisoners when used in gaols. For the geekier among you, the exact Hex value for “Drunk tank pink” (also known as Baker Miller Pink) is FF91AF, which translates into RGB as R:255, G:145, B:175. You’re welcome.
It’s already widely known that colour can play a part in influencing mood, with red interiors for example being ideal for increasing stress levels and rousing passions, whilst more neutral tones can help to sooth and calm, so when it comes to choosing a colour scheme for your event, it’s worth taking colour theory seriously.
If you want to create a nice, calm atmosphere using bright primary colours might not be the best idea. Similarly, if you want to create a sense of energy in your space neutrals just aren’t going to cut it.
Whilst pink as a colour might split opinions, there is no doubt, it’s a very versatile and widely loved colour!
