Fresh Ideas for Your Home

Add a touch of rosé to make your interior crisp and refreshing.

This subtle color is almost as popular for interior design as it is for warm weather drinking. 

Rosé is becoming more and more popular as a light and cool beverage option. It’s also a perfect choice to revitalize your interior design plan. This soft color was popular in interior design in the 1980s and called dusty rose, and it’s now gaining popularity as rosé.


Rosé is a soft color part way between red and magenta in hue, and then toned down to a lighter shade. Just like the wine, this decorating color can range from the lightest of pinks to a hearty bold shade. You could also call it:  

  • Blush

  • Rose pink

  • Light apricot

  • Peach haze

It’s a smart decorating choice that’s a bit more sophisticated and subtle than more typical pink tones. Rosé goes well with many colors including gray, copper, violet, black and white. And it looks fabulous with almost every shade of green, including mint, sage, forest, teal and acid. You can even pair it with bright red or orange!


This subtle shade of pink doesn’t have to look girly or frilly. It’s a smooth tone that works equally well for modern or traditional interiors. And used as a neutral – or just adding a bit of rosé to your neutral tones – can make your skin tone appear more youthful and healthy!


If you’re not sure you’ll like rose in your home environment, try it for a small element such as slip covers, throw pillows or bed linens. Or accent just one wall of a room with rosé paint.


Add a touch of soft and calming rosé to your interior this season. It’s an intoxicating choice!
