Daring to make a statement? Hot pink is about as bold as it gets. Paint your home with these brightly hues that demand attention yet remain sophisticated.

Whether as a nail polish or a lacquered side table, we adore this tone of energetic pink. It’s the perfect color for summer.

Use Sherwin Williams Eros Pink (SW6860) on an accent wall in a girl’s bedroom. Throw in some white lacquered furniture and a pop of black to express her “diva” style.

I love Hot Lips BM 2077-30 as a very deep, hot pink option…nothing bubblegum about this color. Painted in a high gloss, it would make a fabulous jewel-box powder room paired with black accents and brushed silver. Or on a statement wall in a dining area with crisp, white accents. This is not for the faint of heart. But it’s really an “adult” pink, deserving a role in the main part of a house, not just for girlie bedrooms.

Give me Pink Corsage #1349 by Benjamin Moore. It is “her” room bringing on the raspberry pop of color. Give me lots of windows, nine foot ceilings as a minimum, bead board in crisp white … gray painted wood floors, large scale very textured geometric rug in white and mid-tone gray, trim and ceiling in white. The paint above the bead board to the top portion of the wall in Pink Corsage #1349. Accessorize in pink pillows, books with pink covers, a pink floral here and there, pink throw and then a surprise element … paint the doors luscious Pink Corsage!

Pink is generally considered a feminine color, but it has many other qualities. It can also be masculine, as well as historic, depending on its pairings. Racer pink paired with glossy whites is fresh and fun! The popularity of pink has been attributed to millennials, their love of pink is seen in their fashion and home decor choices. When it comes to design, pink has a fascinating complexity.
