Did you know that pink was originally a masculine color? Surprised?
Pink is just red mixed with white, and red is associated with masculine qualities such as passion and ambition. It was only in the mid-19th century that pink and other pastel colors were considered feminine, leaving the darker hues for men.
We believe that a color is just that – a color and can work for anyone if they can carry it with comfort and confidence. On that beautiful note, here are a few sophisticated ways of adding a dose of pink to your home. Ready?
Add a statement piece in pink
An easy way to add pink to a room is to pick one large piece of furniture, such as a sofa, and allow it to be the focal point of the room. This adds a fun pop of color to the space, with little commitment and effort.
Pink doors and windows
An unusual way to make a statement is to swap your entrance door with a pink one! This works really well if the rest of the building has neutral colors. Window frames in pink can also be bold accents that don’t make things overpowering.
Sweet pink accents
Feeling a bit unsure about adding a bright color to your decor? Start small. Little accents can ease you into trying out a new color. Like starting out with a pink side table or ottoman and then incorporating other elements throughout the room.
A rose-colored room
Take your love for the color to another level by creating an entire room with pink walls. Dusty pink with an antique finish can look classy, even in large doses.
Mixing the pinks
Pink comes in a myriad of hues, from neon bright to nearly white. An eclectic mix of shades can add a casual-chic tone to your home. Many small pink accessories dotting the room will make it look cohesive.
Bedroom with dark colors and pink accents
Pink can look great as an accent color in bedrooms. The trick is to balance it with dark neutrals such as navy or gray, which would appear too heavy on their own.
A bathroom is a place of serene privacy. Pink lends itself well to this environment since it is meant to evoke comfort. Add small details such as pink laundry baskets or pink-framed mirrors to a white bathroom to instantly upgrade its look. You can even go all out with tiles in varying shades of pink.
A pink home office
As per the color theory, pink stands for the energy of red softened with the peaceful quality of white. This makes it a good color to have around whilst working. Plus, you can use this as an excuse to buy yourself a bouquet of pink flowers to place on your desk! Want to know what your preferred workspace color says about you? Find out here!
