Fort Street Studio Thinks PINK

While the color pink is often thought of as girly, it’s not just for pretty parlors. Fort Street Studio’s Principal & Creative Director Janis Provisor says of her new color obsession, “Pink can be naughty or nice. It can represent the blush of spring, or the flush on a lover’s cheeks. Pink is a bit of feminine in an all too masculine world, yet cool boys wear pink too.” This beautiful, luscious color has so many applications in the worlds of fashion, art & photography, and interiors too – be it modern, transitional, or traditional.
