Whether you refer to it as “Blush” or “Millennial Pink”, this soft shade of pink isn’t going anywhere anytime soon! It is the perfect colour for weddings, Valentine’s Day, bridal showers, and other parties or events, but it is also possible to use blush as an everyday colour in your home decor and living spaces. Pink is easy for most people to tolerate (including men!); it is a way to add a tone of red to a space without using red itself, which can be a very bold and difficult colour to work with. When used properly, blush can add softness and sophistication to a room. And it can be used in fresh, contemporary ways very different from the typical feminine styling most might think of.
Here are a few examples to inspire you to add a little pink into your life, ranging from subtle touches to bold statements!
