Pink!

I just recently posted about a home in House Beautiful that was impeccably designed by Jonathan Berger. In it, he designed an entry way in a bright pink, called Razzle Dazzle by Benjamin Moore, which was a VERY bold choice! And it was fabulous.

I may be incorrect here, but it seems that bright pink is on the front of the design scene right now and wanting to be heard!

Using Pink with Other Colors:

All shades of pink become a different personality when combined with other colors. Pink and orange are playful and vibrant and are commonly used in teenagers rooms or young adults. Pink mixed with black or brown becomes more of a sharp statement of style because of the contrast. See below for more color combinations.

Feng Shui and Pink:

Pink in an environment sooths the heart and fills it with love. Place it in the Southwest area of your home for it to connect to the Love and Marriage aspect of your life.

Popular color combinations using pink

Based on where pink falls on the color wheel, I’ve listed some of the most popular color combinations using pink.

wow, you sure did do a "Pink" post. Those were great. I love pink, but have never used it in my own home and I raised two girls too...I wonder if I missed my chance? thanks for visiting.

LOVE it ALL (well, maybe not the "gotta wear shades" fuschia!)
Just don't know if the Hubster would let me do anything like it - outside of our daughter's room {sigh}

Great post!

The first soft pink is hushingly lovely, especially with the deco accents.

I like Barry's take on it, although too hot for my tastes I could easily spend a holiday in those rooms. Well done!

I love pink as well, it can be a very sophisticated color when designed well. I just found your blog and I love it. I wanted to invite you to participate in my giveaway. It started yesterday and it will go on until Monday. Have a wonderful weekend!
