Millennials Have a Favorite Color, and It's Not Pink. Millennial pink: a color so omnipresent, it somehow became symbolic of an entire generation. Deliciously bright and endearing, it's no wonder we're drawn to shops, clothing and interiors that feature the shade. Despite it being literally everywhere, it turns out millennials have an unexpected favorite color — and it's pretty much the exact opposite of pale pink. In celebration of National Painting Week, Sherwin-Williams collaborated with Harris Poll to find out Americans' color preferences, and after surveying 2,200 people over the age of 18, results showed that 41 percent of millennials chose black (gasp!) as their favorite color. Overall, black and blue were the favorites for all ages.
Unpopular Opinion: Clawfoot Tubs Are Simply the Worst. Clawfoot bathtubs are beautiful; there's no doubt about it. Reassuringly solid, with lovely antique detailing, it's not hard to see why so many bathroom renovators are wooed by their winsome charms. In fact, we've reached an interior design moment in which one would be hard-pressed to find a recently remodeled bathroom that isn't designed around a delightfully quirky vintage bathtub — call it the Joanna Gaines effect. However, we have a hunch that this what's-old-is-new-again fad is on its way out, for one simple reason: we're starting to remember why "old-fashioned" tubs fell out of common usage in the first place. Clawfoot tubs became a part of our collective design vocabulary as a luxury item of the Victorian era. By the 1920's, they were de rigeur, but by the midcentury, they were outdated, replaced with the more efficient built-in tubs of the 60s and 70s. Now, we're not encouraging a return to the shallow rectangular constructions many of us grew up with, but there are a few reasons that the clawfoot tub is not the bathroom design panacea it appears.
