color pops: pretty in pink

First things first! Two Live Colorfully will be moving to self-hosted wordpress-ville this week! So, a Wednesday post may be late or non-existent, but we’re super excited about this change and we think you’re going to like it too!!

Sure, Valentine’s Day is over, but truth be told, I’m a year-round pink lover. Last month, I shared a fun Color Pop collection for True Blue fans everywhere, but today, we’re going full on girly! Plus, I’m sharing a few tips for making pink work in a not-overly-feminine way. Let’s roll.pretty-in-pink-color-pop-2

I think the key with pink decor (especially if you share your living space with a man!) is moderation. So, even though I know that Josh would never in a million years let me bring that hot pink ottoman in our home, I’m pretty sure a pillow case combined with that pretty abstract painting would be perfectly acceptable.

Also, paired with darker shades of gray or maybe even navy blue, you could make pink fit perfectly in a shared space. I think a perfect example of this is Oh Joy’s house which was styled by Emily Henderson. It’s feminine, but not overly so. If you’re looking for real life inspiration on how to make that combo work, I’d start with her house tour here!

What are your thoughts on pink home decor? Totally fine or way too girly? And what Color Pop Collections would you love to see in the future!?
