Who Doesn’t Love Pink?

Who doesn’t love pink?  It seems we all have love on our minds during the month of February, and what better color to evoke romantic feelings than pink?  There are so many ways to incorporate pink into a space, whether you want to go all out or just add a hint of color here and there.  Below are some of my favorite examples of how this pretty shade can enhance almost any room in your home.

Such a whimsical scene!

The meaning of pink can be used to emanate feelings of compassion, caring, understanding, and, what else but, love and romance. It can be a pure and innocent color, and in turn, very positive. Hence, it can benefit your life by generating positive emotions, love, compassion and happiness.

A well placed accessory can bring a new elegance to your design.  Pink is a great choice for an accent color.  It adds a feminine touch and a blush of happiness.  This color often has a calming effect on people, suggesting safety and vulnerability.  Use bright pinks for a playful, exciting atmosphere or more vibrant pinks for a passionate, sensual feel.  The pink spectrum has so much potential!

The most common pink color used in feng shui decorating is a gentle pink, although the “hot version” of it, the magenta pink, is also very popular. Combined with orange, also a fire feng shui element color, it can bring a fiery and passionate energy to any space.

Pink helps people get in touch with their thoughtful and caring side, either through the need to receive, give or care for others.  Using pink in the bathroom may offer a little extra space for mental reflection.

Red Room

Red rooms are so fun to design! Using the color red has a bit of psychology behind it. Red will offer a resonant and stimulating aspect for rooms. A room with much red can increase the level of passion. Red may also be used to increase hunger and can be a great color for a kitchen! With red being a bold color, it often requires a little design know how to build a room around it. Here are some designs that I find inspirational for taking on red room projects.

Love the gold paint outlining the door panels!

Gold always goes great with red. It offers a more regal look to the design. Finding a complimentary carpet will bring the room together.

Designing a room with a touch of red doesn’t always have to mean painting the walls. Well placed red decor may also bring out the warm vibes of a room.

Sitting room goals!

A comfy red velvet love seat can also be a great design detail. With the fabric reflecting light, it will open up the room a bit. Bold colors may make a room feel smaller, but using accents of white and a lighter color will open it right back up.

A large room with windows is always a great option for red design. The light will really bring out the brightness in the red tones and wake a room up. This reading nook is absolutely beautiful. Each fabric is unique with a small touch of red or muted tones.

Luscious!

Like a bold lipstick, red can make a room more interesting. It can cause people to stop and stare. Adding red to a quiet room can create a little buzz around the area.

Stunning combination of red and white. And that chandelier…..wow!

Red bathrooms are one of my favorite ways to explore red interior design projects. Take a look at these two bathrooms!

So cool!

Do you have something red in your home that you love?
