Pretty in Pink

Whether or not pink is one of your favorite shades, it’s a versatile hue in bringing springtime cheer to your home’s interior.


Everyone has a favorite color, it’s one of those universal kinds of things. I have two, maybe three … actually, it’s hard to think of a color that I don’t love and want to call my favorite.

But I have to confess that pink has only been considered a favorite of mine when paired with green – I’m a child of preppy-dom. But recently I have been in love with pink as a punch of color and even when it’s not cuddled up to green.

From blush to bright, it’s a pretty hot color for spring. Rose Quartz pink was even chosen by Pantone as one of 2016’s colors of the year. Woven into rugs, painted onto canvases or formed into shapes, everything is pretty in pink.
