House Beautiful dedicated their entire March issue to “the Power of Pink” and have shown us some very enticing ways to use the color without going overboard. If you don’t subscribe to the magazine pick up a copy at your local magazine stand so you can see how to bring pink back into your life.. without having it look too feminine. The men in your house have probably been steering you clear from pink because of its girly reputation. Don’t let them stand in your way! It’s warm, flattering, sexy and can help just about any mood
This den has just the right amount of pink in the lacquered walls to make it warm and cozy without screaming barbie pink. Plus the blue carpet cools down the room quite a bit as does the white sofa and ivory coffee table.
This MBR has a very soft hue of pink which keeps it warm and inviting
This LR ramps it up a bit with some florals mixed in with greens and citrines
It’s always nice to play earth tones (grey, brown, beige) against pink so that it doesn’t become the focus of the room and has interesting contrast throughout
You can never go wrong with making your daughters room the center of pink. Afterall, the color was created for girls!
The greys play nicely in this tradtional room where you would never expect pink on the walls
So soft and serene. I wouldn’t mind climbing into this bed at night!
All photos are from House Beautiful Magazine and can be seen online or in their March issue which will be on stands shortly. Take a look at the entire issue to see how pink can inspire you even if it’s just a small chair in the corner of your room or a throw pillow that can easily be replaced.
