Up ’til now, I admit, I’ve a lot most well-liked earthier colours—for sporting and for interiors—than what I’ve at all times considered considerably frilly, not-me pink. However recently I’ve shocked myself by being reasonably drawn to it: There’s a slew of pinks on the market to like—not all of them bubblegum or tutu—from dusty mauve to delicate salmon to only barely barely pink. And, opposite to my earlier (possibly widespread) perception, pink in interiors needn’t be fussy, or young-looking: It may be daring, romantic, playful, surprising, even a bit cheeky.
Proof? Simply check out these bedrooms—some with only a contact of pink, others dressed head to toe—that I’m seeing in new gentle.
