Living The Pink Life
Have you ever thought about living a PINK LIFE?
I'm talking about a pink house and everything inside of it!
Now you may think I'm a little crazy, but there are people who LIVE THE PINK LIFE.
So what's all the fuss about pink...
The color PINK represents compassion, nurturing and love. It relates to unconditional love and understanding, and the giving and receiving of nurturing.
PINK, a delicate color that means sweet, nice, playful, cute, romantic, charming, feminine, and tenderness, is associated with bubble gum, flowers, babies, little girls, cotton candy, and sweetness. The color PINK is the color of universal love of oneself and of others. ... Both red and PINK represent love.
The generally accepted rule is PINK for the boys, and blue for the girls. The reason is that PINK, being a more decided and stronger color, is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl.
To mix colors to make PINK, combine a red shade with white until you get the desired PINK hue. The more white you add to the red, the lighter the PINK will be. If you're mixing oil or acrylic paint, spread red paint on a palette, then add a small amount of white paint and mix them together.
So here you have it. I was well surprised when I read that PINK is more predominantly for boys rather than girls - very interesting.
Let's see how you too can have a PINK home...
First let me say that not everything needs to be in pink!
So if you love PINK and would like to bring it over to your home, than why not start small with painted trim and your front door. This is a wonderful way of spreading the color around your home because you have windows around your home.
This is another beautiful way of adding color all around your home with painted shutters.
Even very old homes can be dressed in PINK.
If you decide to take the plunge in painting the entire exterior PINK, you can soften the color even more with white trim, or give it meaning behind black trim.
Painting both sides of your front door spells inviting. Also think about a pink rug and chandelier for the foyer.
When decorating your home, use PINK sparingly with other soft colors to create interest.
Think simple things like pink books and pink flowers of any sort.
Just a simple armchair can evoke PINK entirely into a space.
All types of PINK pillows will further add comfort to any space.
And how about this PINK office? The PINK used here is simplicity at it's finest. Roses and lamp.
Your dining room can be just as, or even more gorgeous than the rest of your home. Certainly set your table so your family can gather at night and buy extra tableware when having friends and family over.
You can do this simply with white plates and a pink bread dish on top with pink linen napkings.
Large containers of roses is the final touch here!
The inside of your home can be like the outside. Paint your trim in PINK while leaving the walls white.
I know that I don't have to tell you that PINK bedding is a must in a PINK house.
For me, I think the PINK drapes are a bit much here.
And let's not forget about all the accessories you can use in your home.
Because we're working with such a beautiful color, one should look for decor that's unique.
Now this doesn't mean that you can't buy just ordinary PINK decor because certainly do. As long as it's super gorgeous!
