So, BE DARING! or not, and try a small amount of pink.
You can be like my granddaughter – a bit unexpected. She’s pretty in pink but cradling a sand rat!
Pink has unexpected qualities. So I encourage you:
Try pink out of the little girl’s room and let it grow up.
Here's 6 ways:
1. ADD BROWN
Pair the bright, lively color of pink with neutral browns, like the sand rat!
Notice in the photo below how the tawny chocolate color pales the presence of the vivid pink. Brown softens the fuchsia into a subtle maturity.
Use browns found in nature to decrease the belief that pink is for girls only.
2. SIZE MATTERS!
Go big with pink!
The 14”and 16” tall and chunky candlesticks stand bold and proud.
The WIDE base gives them strength and anchors their no-nonsense presence.
3. USE SHAPE TO SOPHISTICATE PINK
An unusual shape gives the dainty color of pink a worldly, uptown look in home decor.
4. PUT PINK WITH CONTEMPORARY.
5. MIX METALS WITH PINK
Add the glitz by mixing classic metallic copper, gold, and silver.
Suddenly the pink is seasoned and cultivated!
6. COLOR "POP"
Look closely at prints in fabric. You'll be surprised how touches of this vivid color adds energy to your decor, and sparks joy.
7. COLOR BALANCE
Mix a “cool” color (any shade of blue, green, violet) to contrast the “hot” color of pink.
Back to nature. In the painting below, the beauty of "warm" soft pink is balanced the with "cool" green leaves and blue skies.
Why re-think pink in home decor and art?
The lively color is a great pick-me-up!
Be it spring, summer, autumn, or fall, any season will delight in pink.
