April In Color: We're Re-thinking Pink

Back in 2015 when I chose KM4464 Bare Pink for a color blocking video (watch here!), the choice seemed rather bold for a living room. Just a few years later it seems pink has grown on all of us... or maybe we've grown up a bit?
Either way, it's definitely not for baby girls anymore. Pink is for everyone again, and can be both powerful and playful depending on where you use it and which cheeky version you choose. We're seeing it in so many fun and unexpected places. Here are just a few of our favorites and why they work so well.

Today's terrazzo and terra cotta craze is perfect with warm peachy pinks that feel just a bit faded. We love pink in patio and sunroom spaces where people like to hang out at the end of the day.

 And don't even get me started on pink and any playful colors for stairs! It's just a fun easy way to keep everyone in your house smiling and looking up.

Have you noticed kitchen cabinets getting more adventurous with color? Today's kitchens are about celebrating this favorite gathering spot with expressive optimistic colors from sage green to baby blue and yes, some really pretty pinks.

Pink is a surprisingly versatile for kitchens. Use bright playful pink for sunny slim-lined cabinets or beige-y barely there blush colors for a subtle update on traditional doors and drawers.

Now just step outside for a minute or two and you'll see pink's strongest trend!

Front doors have become a personal welcome statement, and pink is definitely bursting onto that scene. Think old-fashioned flower colors like mini-rose and carnation for bungalows and farm house front doors...

 And more exotic hues in the range of coral and flamingos for art deco houses, of any era, and post-modern abodes.
