Pink – it’s not just for girls anymore. When covering trends for Spring 2014, Elle Décor magazine found several designers using unexpected pink accents peppered throughout a room. The magazine says, “Pink brightens neutrals, and softens athletic and edgy looks. While pink does add a feminine touch to a room, in the right shade it can also be strong, authoritative, and complex. As an accent color, it’s also a surefire attention grabber.”
Why not add a pop of pink to a room in your home? It can be a quick and fun way to update your décor. Here are a few pieces – in varying shades – that will make you blush (with joy).
This Hot Pink Ottoman is made to hold shoes – eight pairs, in fact – but it also holds your attention. With a touch of glamour and a touch avant-garde, it would be perfect as a cocktail ottoman in your living room. Imagine it in a room with contemporary white sofas and chrome and glass end tables. It would also be perfect as a kick of color in a sophisticated master suite. Its button tufted top lifts for storage.
Looking for a paler shade? Our subtle pink bench will fit the bill. Meant for the bedroom, this quilted bench would add a posh feel to a living room. Use it as an ottoman or as extra seating during a party. Or place one in your oversized foyer to give guests a comfortable spot to take off their boots. With button tufting on all of its surfaces, its chic styling will elevate the look of any room.
The pop of pink in the colorful pattern of the Elsie Armless Accent Chair gives the piece a fun and youthful look. With its on-trend gray background, the pink and white circles look like whimsical poppies, quickly brightening your room. Sleek wood legs lend support and give the piece a contemporary feel. It would be a perfect addition to your family room seating group.
Finally, give your room a most unexpected pop of pink with our ultra hip Pink Shag Rug from the Kempton Collection. Plush in feel yet vibrant in color, it will tickle friends and make you smile. Imagine it with your black leather sofas or use it to perk up beige upholstery. One thing is for sure: it’s will make your floors pop.
