10 Ways Pink Brings Energy to Your Space
It's National Pink Day — incorporate this lighthearted hue into your home's design.
Today is National Pink Day — this hue has been in design and fashion since the 14th century. Acccording to Pantone, different shades convey very different meanings. "Light pinks connote sweetness and tenderness, muted dusty pinks are more sophisticated and upscale and brighter pinks are more whimsical and fun." But every shade "exudes warmth, charm and vitality." Who wouldn't want to incorporate this cheerful color into their interior? To celebrate, we've rounded up our favorite rooms that feature pink in stylish ways.
