How to Decorate Your Home With Pink and Still Keep Your Guy Happy

The other day the topic of a pink sofa came up somehow, and I joked with my husband that he would probably let me get away with adding a pink sofa to our decor (he usually trusts my design decisions … and thank goodness for that). Only he made one of those faces at me as he said it, and I realized, “Okay, mayyybe not a whole sofa.” With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, and my penchant for pink (I mean, seriously, a pink sofa never looked so goodI’m all over it), I’m wondering, “How do you add pink to your home, and still keep your guy happy?”

Now I’m sure plenty of color-loving guys are all for pink, but a lot of guys just haven’t jumped on the pink bandwagon. (Don’t they know, “On Wednesdays, we wear pink”?)

How to Decorate With Pink In Your Home (So That Your Guy Will Actually Love It!)

But with a bit of research, and plenty of edgy cool inspiration, I’ve got thirteen gorgeous examples of ways to incorporate pink that will make everyone happy (guys included), plus a few helpful tips …

  • The key when incorporating guy-approved pink to your home, is by adding in pops of color, paired with edgier pieces, rustic pieces, darker pieces; basically, something to balance the pink. It’s all about balance, people.
  • Start subtle: try shades of blush pink and coral, and work your way up to louder pinks like fuschia and hot pink.
  • Incorporate rose gold metal – another great introduction to pink, without being “too pink” (if there’s such a thing!)
  • Sneak pink into patterns. The busy feel of the patterns will play down the individual colors.

    Pink is my absolute fave color! My apartment is all pink! I always laugh with my friends because I say my future husband better love pink or it’s not going to work out! Love your ideas!

    I had a pink futon in my law school apartment, which made its way into our home when we got married. We had it for about a year until hubby finally asked if we could get rid of it. Ha ha!
