Currently Loving: Pretty in Pink

By Amy Ehmann of  Design Lotus

There’s something special about the color pink. Whether the shade you love is bold or more subdued, pink never fails to capture your attention and trigger emotions. Case study #1: Neon pink. You can go from ordinary to extraordinary with a pop of bright, neon pink. Use it sparingly though, because it is so bright and can quickly overwhelm.

A deeper pink-magenta shade is a tad more tame, but still creates a great focal point or anchor for a room. It’s bold yet sophisticated and elegant.

Lastly, the palest shade of blush pink is so sweet and charming—it makes me smile and want to say “Aww…” The shade reminds of a baby’s just-pinched cheeks, don’t you think? The color brings a soft warmth to a room without overpowering it, yet still draws attention just because it’s pink! And when decorating, definitely think beyond a child’s room—it’s an unexpected color that can really work anywhere in your home.
