It’s the color that designers hate to love.
The one you don’t quite know how to work into your decor.
The color that can go terribly wrong or dashingly right by understanding how and when to splash it or drench it into your design.
It’s the hue born of combining fiery red with the purity white. And it embodies the passion and pureness from both its parents.
From pale to peachy to punchy. Faint, fuschia to fancy.
Glam it up or tone it down, it’s a versatile, playful color that is oozing with charm, femininity, and romance.
You’ll be tickled pink to see how the mood of your decor changes from one pink to the next and these 12 striking examples will show you how to get it right.
Pale pink plays off the purity of white and has a subtle naivety with approachable, soft warmth to it.
Combine it with white and splash it in with a faint sofa, a geometric tile floor, a floral wallpaper or a painted wall.
