Welcome to our ongoing series featuring our favorite colors. Today’s color is salmon! I love this color because of its complexity and groovy retro vibe. A cross between orange and pink, it’s girly without being overly saccharine and it’s just the perfect accent color for any traditional boyish palette of greens/blues/grays.

Besides that, salmon itself is delicious to eat and chock full of healthy benefits! Here are some salmon inspired ideas and products to enjoy and share with kids.
