Add the color of happiness to your home

Pink connotes romance, so it’s perfect to add this shade during Valentine’s Day month. It’s also an excellent choice year round, because pink has been called the color of happiness.

Traditionally, pink is a frilly and girly color, but it doesn’t have to be. Depending on the hues you select, it can be modern, sophisticated and luxurious.

You can create most any mood depending on which shade of pink you select, including these delicious hues: watermelon, pink grapefruit, shrimp, strawberry, bubble gum, cotton candy and raspberry.

Set the mood with your favorite shade of pink

The more vibrant shades of pink add energy and excitement to your décor, while softer shades create a feeling of calm and tranquility.

Pink and green are almost opposites on the color wheel, which is why pink looks fabulous with many green hues including tasty mint, dusty sage, brilliant emerald, zesty lime, and even acid green.

Pink also works well with white, grey, black, gold, silver, brown and red, based on the shade of pink you select.
