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 good … I’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”?)
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.
