Salmon Pink / by Deborah Clague

Salmon Pink

Is a colour that should not exist outside of nature. 

Garish 70s pastiche will never be back in style. 

Least of all as part of a hospice environment. 

An environment where one expects the best in care. The best in comfort. Soothing neutrals, not the migraine-inducing hues of Care Bear vomit. And yet, this is the least of our worries but one that could provide a bit of confidence when it is sorely needed. That could provide a bit of calm in a highly stressful situation. The walls of Health Sciences Centre are salmon pink accented with an algae blue, the coupling of which defies all logic and reasoning in interior design. Good interior design. 

I am becoming angry with a colour. 

It is the only variable in this situation.
