Pretty in Pink

In my last post, I shared 5 quick ways to decorate your houses for Christmas.  One of the quick ways is to repaint your wall colors.  I will focus on color of Pink in today’s blog.

50 Shades of Pink?

Pink is romantic and intimate, feminine, loving, caring and extremely considerate. It tones down the physical passion from the red color and replaces it with a gentle and loving energy.  In color psychology, pink is a sign of hope. It is a positive color that inspires warm and comforting feelings. The color pink gives the feeling that everything will go well or be okay. Most people have heard of the saying “everything is rosy”. It may also indicate good health and success.

Pink in Interiors

Applying  Pink in interiors can create chic, fashionable, cheerful, feminine  feeling. Combining it with darker colors like dark blue, dark green, black or gray, you can make the color pink stronger and more sophisticated.  Here are some room exmples:

Another project we did this year. Pink wall provides such an elegant backdrop for the artwork –The Lady in Red. This salmon pink is rich, passionate and classy. I really like the way how it pairs with cream panellings.
