THE POWER OF PINK

When it comes to color trends in interior design, there is one that seems to continuously stand the test of time. We are talking about the versatile, lovely, always popular pink. Sure, there have been times when this color has been more prominent in the interior design world than others, but it always manages to make a comeback at some point. A few years ago, there was a surge in the use of blush tones, which was probably the most prevalent shade of pink at the time. Then came the debut of the Barbie movie, which caused all varieties of pink to explode everywhere you look. We love this color in interior design because it has so much power to affect the mood of the room depending on which shades you use. In this article, we discuss ways to incorporate this classic, timeless color in all of its gorgeous variations.

 

1. Hot Pink adds vibrancy.


Hot Pink is a very powerful color, adding boldness and vibrancy to any room. This is a great color to use on pillows or accent chairs to incorporate a fun pop of color and youthfulness. Be careful not to overuse this color. Since it is so bold, it can easily overpower the room and look tacky and overwhelming when used in excess.

Bonus Tip: For an extra boost of playfulness, use fabrics that incorporate hot pink in a cool pattern such as animal print or polka dots.

2. Dusty Rose adds sophistication.




If you like pink, but crave subtle sophistication, Dusty Rose is your color. It pairs so well with neutrals such as browns and grays, but also adds such a wonderful warmth to the room. Dusty Rose is muted enough to not overpower the space, but also powerfully inviting, which is a great combination.

3. Blush Pink and Rose Gold add femininity. 







Blush Pink offers a touch of femininity, especially when paired with other understated pinks such as Rose Gold. These soft shades also pair well with neutrals, but are best appreciated when used sparingly. Too much of either of these colors could cause them to lose their charm and make a room look drab.

4. Florals and soft pinks pair wonderfully together.


You pretty much canít go wrong when combining floral patterns (or actual flowers for that matter) with soft shades of pink. They are a match made in heaven. Florals are a great way to add detail to any space, and subtle pinks provide the perfect backdrop for them to have their spotlight.


Bonus Tip: If you have floral pieces that you cherish, such as hand-painted plates, or hand-pressed flowers, let them inspire the rest of your design choices for that area.

 

 

5. Pink makes a great accent color.


All shades of pink look amazing when used as accent colors in a room, and they all work well together, too! From throw blankets to vases, place pops of pink throughout a space to add playfulness and positive vibes.
