(Kelly Wearstler via One Kings Lane) 

Every home needs yin and yang, masculine and feminine, strong and gentle, bright and soft… and a pink sofa can add an unexpected punch that  brightens, softens, strengthens or adds gentleness to a space.  My own watery blue sofas are going to be remade in crushed pink velvet the minute I find a new place (!) to move.  Pink is not always feminine. Pink is not always quiet… but pink is memorable, powerful and divine.  Pink is as fun to look at as it is to experience, shaping space with an added layer of personality.  Plus: pink sofas are awesome!

Pink is a strong and somewhat neutral color here- neither too feminine nor too masculine.  Its a real game-changer in this room.

Vintage pink is the inspiration for my own sofa re-do.

Pink so hot it can nearly be red.

Deep wine is mysterious and thought to be a color of “manifestation” of dreams. Cool, right?



Dusty pink is a rosewood-y shade close to a beige-family neutral .

And even at its lightest and softest, pink can still hold its own with neutral accents without looking too frou-frou.  So fabulous!

HERE is more on the feng shui power of pink.  And more is  HERE on the special-ness of magenta if you want to swim in more pink today!   xoxo Dana

    Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long)
    so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any suggestions for inexperienced blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.
