Tickled Pink Decorating

  
Pink is not one of those colors I decorate with. Wear, yes, decorate with, not so much. However, around holidays like Valentine’s Day and Christmas I love to use it in splashes. The generally accepted rule is pink for the boys, and blue for the girls. Okay I get that rule but times have changed. You rarely see a boy wearing pink but you will see a lot of men wearing pink and my husband is one of them. Pink can be masculine. Combining pink with other darker colors such as dark blue, dark green, black or gray, adds strength and sophistication to pink. Growing up we had the quintessential “pink” bathroom. I knew girl’s that had the “all pink” bedroom and I even had a teacher in elementary school that not only wore pink every day but also owned a pink 65' Ford Mustang! Okay it was the sixties! Pink has and always will be a favorite in decorating but is has taken a step out of the girl’s bedrooms, nurseries and bathrooms and taken a step up into our living rooms, dining rooms and entries! Pink accents add that pop of color that is not only energizing but unexpected. So many variations of the color can be seen in home d├ęcor. Take a look at the pics below to hmmm get a bit Tickled, Pink that is ~........by the way......Happy Valentine's!

Variations of the Color Pink
 
 
Blush: Similar to skin color, this very pale pink has sensual and sexual connotations. It is non-threatening but lacks passion and energy.


 
 
 
Rose Pink: This is the pink of universal love and unity. It is mature, feminine and intuitive.

Salmon Pink: There is a touch of orange in salmon pink. 
 
 
 
Orchid: This is an unusual lavender-pink and relates to the unconventional and the individual doing his or her own thing. It is the non conformist.
 
 
 
Fuchsia: A blend of deep pink and blue, fuchsia inspires confidence, assurance and maturity, a more responsible and controlled nurturing and love.



Hot Pink: Hot pink inspires a more passionate, playful and sensual love. It exudes warmth and happiness and a love of life.
