On the Venn diagram of things that Kelly Kapoor likes, and things that I like, pink is pretty much the biggest overlap.
When I was in my 20′s I thought, okay fine, I’m pushing it, but pink is still technically age-appropriate. Then when I turned 30 I thought: “Oh shit, I love pink so much still. I have to trade this out with tartan plaid or something”. That never happened. So now I’m just this 32 year old woman hoping that Michelle Obama will make pink their signature color or something will make it acceptable for me to like this color normally associated with Hello Kitty.
A pink garbage can, you say? Let me just say something. It’s not bubble gum pink or baby pink. It’s more of a berrypink, which exonerates me. The reason I bought this pink Simplehuman garbage can was that pops of color work well in my old Spanish house.
I learned this in 2007 when I bought my friend and fellow Office writer Michael Schur’s house and I bought these cherry red LG washer and dryers. They were kind of pricey (especially since it was during the Writers Strike and I wasn’t working) but it has become the thing I most like looking at in my house, besides that parrot colony that sometimes lands on the tree in front of my house.
I also think that the garbage can and the washer dryer look like you could eat them, like those iMacs used to look like in 1997.
For: people who might buy their furniture from Pinkberry if that was possible, teenage girls, people who are young in spirit (okay pushing it).
