Pink is one of those colors that has many associations, both in meaning and for the memories it brings up for people. This color represents compassion, nurturing and love. Picasso's "Rose Period" was a time where he shifted the subject matter of his paintings to softer more happy things.
A combination of red and white, it is the passion and power of red softened with the purity, openness and completeness of white. The deeper the pink, the more passion and energy it exhibits.
You can go soft with the wall color or bring it into the room with accessories or other touches.
And, of course, rugs are a great way to bring any color into a room if you do not want to go the wall color route. Here a few choices in pink. (Click the pic for rug details)
Or you can go with a color combo that features pink. That way your whole color palette is there for you to work from for accessories etc.
What ever way you go, pink is a lovely way to bring your naturing spirit to life, whether it be in the dining room, bedroom, or home office.
“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” ― Audrey Hepburn

Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
