Even though I don’t consider myself a girly girl, I find I’m gravitating to so many rooms with pink walls. Why is it that our society has deemed pink to be girly, anyway? The majority of these rooms don’t scream “female” to me. They are chic, subtle, soft and a great backdrop for color or black & white. I suppose I think of pink as a softer neutral. Tell me right now a color that clashes with pale pink.

I think the key with pink (any color actually) is picking the right hue. Not many people can pull off a Windsor Smith bubble-gum pink living room. Electric is very tricky, whereas soft can be a lovely backdrop with other pops in the room. Usually when I’m picking pinks, I find a shade I like and then select its quieter sister. Everything looks darker on the wall. I have yet to paint my own bedroom walls, but I assure you, many samples will be tested out!
