In interior design, just as in fashion these days, pink is heating up to become almost as popular as black.
Get in the pink this year with interior design embellishments in your home.
Pink is more versatile than you may think. It can be sophisticated, modern and luxurious. Or it can be girly, childlike or frilly.
Pink lets you have it any way you’d like. Just think of the variety of pink hues available, including raspberry, dusty rose, bubble gum, pink grapefruit, cotton candy, fuchsia and shrimp.
Pink has been called the color of happiness and it often communicates romance. But the mood you create all depends on the shade of pink you select.
Vibrant hot pinks add passion and energy, while the lightest shades of pink bring a feeling of softness and calm. Middle tones are refreshing and feminine. Best of all, pink hues in interior design make most people’s complexions look healthy, young and rosy because they add a soft glow to a room!
Consider these points when you decorate with pink.
- Pink plays well with many shades of green, including sage, lime and forest green, since pink and green are almost opposites on the color wheel.
- Pink is beautiful when paired with black, white, cream, grey, brown, gold, silver and red.
- In a really light hue, pink can even act as a neutral instead of ivory or beige, especially if a pink paint is mixed with beige or ivory to become a soft shadow of pink.
- Pink is perfect for a small space, such as an accent wall or powder room.
Not sure how you’ll like pink? Try it for slip covers, throw pillows or bed linens to get started.
Add a touch of this versatile color to your decor this fall. You and your guests will be tickled pink!
