Fresh Ideas for Your Home

Make your interiors blush by adding a touch of pink.

It's the perfect color choice for Valentines Day and beyond.


Move your decorating plan into the pink by adding this versatile color. Traditionally, pink is a frilly and girly color, but it doesn’t have to be. Depending on the hues you select, it can be modern, sophisticated and luxurious.


Pink connotes romance, so it’s perfect to add this shade during Valentine’s Day month. It’s also an excellent choice year round because pink has been called the color of happiness. You can create most any mood depending on which shade of pink you select, including these delicious hues:     

  • Watermelon 

  • Pink grapefruit

  • Shrimp

  • Strawberry

  • Bubble gum

  • Cotton candy

  • Raspberry


The more vibrant shades of pink add energy and excitement to your décor, while softer shades create a feeling of calm and tranquility. Because pink hues add a soft glow to a room, they tend to make our skin tones look healthy and young, especially when a soft, light pink is used as a neutral.


Because pink and green are almost opposites on the color wheel, pink looks fabulous with many green hues including tasty mint, dusty sage, brilliant emerald, zesty lime, and even acid green. Pink also works well with white, grey, black, gold, silver, brown and red, based on the shade of pink you select.


Nervous about making a big investment in pink? In small amounts, think about adding pink for:

  • Slip covers

  • Throw pillows

  • Bed linens

  • Small rugs

  • A painted accent wall

  • Accessories like candles, artwork, flowers and lamps


Make your interior rosy by adding a touch of versatile pink!
