{9 creative ways to use pink}

“I believe in pink.”  — Audrey Hepburn

She’s not the only one, either. We reported on the pink trend at Highpoint Market back in April, and it’s just getting hotter. From the hottest of pinks to the subtlest blushes — and everything in between — here are some of our favorite ways to use pink.

Or swap the colors. Go with a soft pink on the walls — like Benjamin Moore’s Love and Happiness — to offset black and white furniture.

Too afraid to commit to pink long-term? Cluster pink accessories together, and switch them out when you get tired of them (read: never).

Blacks and white make a chic, dramatic pairing for fuschia.

And finally, this combination of Benjamin Moore’s Cool Lava with natural wood furniture and huge landscape prints feels like a place where Hemingway would feel at home, don’t you think? Corals were popular in the early 20th century, so if you’ve got a home built during that time period, try it on for size.
