We’re celebrating the Millennial pink craze in fashion and design. Some Instagram-worthy spots are from bright magenta to stylish rose gold.

Pan y Pasteles is located in Alcala de Henares. This historic university city is just outside Madrid. Its unique design features polished micro cement flooring and exposed brick walls.

Pietro Nolita, New York City
It’s not surprising that Pietro Nolita is NYC’s most Instagram-worthy restaurant, thanks to its pastel rose interior. The family-owned restaurant serves healthy Italian food in a jewel-box setting.

Kamehameha Snack-Bar, Montreal
Kamehameha Snack Bar is a sunny little piece of Hawaii located in downtown Montreal.

The sweet, rosy decor is enhanced by copper pots that hold plants.
Apeach Cafe, Busan
The Apeach Cafe is located in Busan’s KakaoFriend flagship shop. It is a modern shopping center themed around South Korea’s most loved messenger app, Apeach Cafe. The cotton candy space is named after the Apeach character, a genetically modified peach. It revolves around a shiny rose-clad service station with multiple seating arrangements.
