Color Combinations: Pink & Red

It doesn’t have to be Valentine’s Day or February to incorporate pink and red into your home. And don’t think that using those two colors together makes for a too girly space, either. We’ve gathered some photographic evidence that these two colors make for a bold and modern color palette sure to impress anyone.

If you really want to make a bold statement you might choose to put red and pink on large planes in your space, like walls, floors and furniture, but you don’t have to go that bold to make an impact. In fact, we rather prefer when pink and red are used together as accent colors. Seeing pops of red and pink in art, accessories and soft textures gives them a place to shine without overwhelming, and allows for the use of other colors to ground a space. We think these ten spaces we spotted in various places on the internet have a perfect balance of bold and subtle with their pink and red:
