If you want sweet, sensuous accents of color throughout your home or garden, consider working pink into your interior and exterior landscapes. Just a little bit of this attractive color can go a long way in adding interest to so many color palettes. Whether it’s adding a punch of pink to a green garden or picking the perfect accessory to adorn your bedroom, pink commands attention. Even in small doses, you’ll love the warmth pink creates in any space. Let me show you how.
• In the Garden
Big, beautiful yards with fine-trimmed lawns and lots of greenery can fall flat without a punch of color. In addition to the trees and shrubs that surround your patio or pool, just one or two potted plants with pink flowers can add a wow factor in unequalled proportions. Try a pink azalea or rose bush to brighten up the landscape. Or you can bring subtle hues to your yard by planting pink muhly grass around the outer border. It’s just enough pink to soften the landscape and add a touch color.
• In the Bedroom
A full pink bedroom can be an overwhelming visual site and bring on sensory overload. But, when you add this gorgeous color as an accent, it rocks. Whether you’re working in a room with dreamy whites or another pastel palette, a pop of pink on the windows or in bed pillows can dial up the style meter – big time.
• Background and Accent Walls
Grab a small can of pink paint and create a stunning backdrop on a single wall or shelving unit. The contrast of pink against white or black creates instant drama. It’s a quick and easy way to bring a burst of color into the room and shouldn’t take more than an hour to complete – which makes creating this pop of pink a perfect weekend project.
• Cut Flowers
There’s something so soft and natural about a simple arrangement of cut flowers. Fresh-cut hydrangea, cherry blossom or rose blooms in an uncomplicated vase on a dining or coffee table can breathe life into the entire room. It’s just a little bit of pink; but it goes a long way in any space.
