Pink is an Attitude

Pink is a color most people are afraid to use. 
Women are nervous their men folk would be uncomfortable with it in their shared spaces. 
Too girly. Too sweet. Too babyish. Rubbish!
Pink is a powerful color that when used correctly
will put one at ease, 
quickly establish a mood, and make everyone smile. 
How I love pink!

Barely there pink with lots of white.
Feminine, sophisticated, and downright luscious.

A more saturated pink with plum, cream and beige 
gives this room credibility without overboard femininity.

      Using a clear bright pink with a black and white graphic wallpaper gives this space modern appeal.

You can use hot pink in a traditional decorating scheme. 
This gives an excitement to what would otherwise have been 
an expected combination if you had used a neutral wall color.

This ballet pink wall color is kept in check by the black iron bed. I used this similar combination when I painted my first house pink, back in 1988. The neighborhood was in disbelief, but that little house became famous around town. I think the black shutters and fascia boards in black made the pink house sing.

One last pretty pink picture before I go!
