Think Pink...And Remember to Love Yourself First
Thinking about Valentine’s Day puts me in the mood for love. And – as I believe you are all aware – that means loving your life, loving your home, and, most of all, loving yourself. In particular, I’m thinking about the transformational effect the color pink can bring to your space and to your life. Whether it’s the palest pink or a fabulous fuchsia, pink inspires romance, passion and love. It’s a happy color, inviting openness of the heart and of the mind…what could be better than that?
Among the most gorgeous shades of pink are those occurring in nature.

Even if you’ve never decorated with pink before, it’s remarkably easy to incorporate into your existing décor. I recommend beginning with a relatively neutral color scheme (gray works beautifully here!), and layering in pink accents such as pillows, artwork and other small accessories to create a warm, inviting atmosphere.
Shocking pink has long been a fashion favorite since Elsa Schiaparelli popularized it in the 1930’s.

A little pink goes a long way when it comes to design, so feel free to be discerning when it comes to your accent choices. When grounded by neutrals, carefully placed soft pinks create a sense of calming elegance that’s both cozy and tranquil. Plus, it’s remarkably pretty!
Feeling a bit more bold and daring? (And I say, just do it!). Then let your head be turned by vivid fuchsia, guaranteed to inject energy and passion. Take a look at my Color Ways, and scroll to the Warm Gray Palette, created exclusively with our Color and Paint Resident Expert, Sherwin-Williams. A vibrant punch of pink is balanced by grounding grays and bright whites for decadent sophistication.
Whatever shade of pink your taste runs to, embrace Valentine’s Day with this happy, confident hue…love yourself, and let the love into your home!
