I Heart Pink

Today I’m cheating on my favorite color — purple — to love on pink.  I’m attracted to pink because it kind of has a split personality… just like many of us creative types.  It is both innocent and sexy; childish and sophisticated.  {The photo above features a decal from wallums.com.}

Soft pinks make a room feel romantic and formal while vibrant pinks work perfectly in girls’ bedrooms — especially when used with green and/or blue.

Pink and white together look classic and elegant, and it’s another great color duo for a girl’s room because your daughter can grow with it:

Adding pink to your color scheme will always add an interesting spark to your space, especially when it’s used outside of the bedroom which is very unexpected:

Other cool combos to try are Pink and Orange for a global glam look…

I believe that pink is meant to be used in creative ways, so whether you paint a room pink or only use pink accessories, be bold and make it fun.

  1. i am usually not a pink person, but i’ve been attracted to it alot of late. so much so, that i want to paint my kitchen pink. more like a subtle pink with a hint of mauve(not as bright as the one pictured). the hubby is not on board, but now that he is away, it is the perfect time to experiment. i just need to find the perfect shade….:-)
