Hot Pink Punch

Hot Pink Punch

Definitely not a color for the faint-hearted. This girly hue packs a powerful punch even in limited doses. As breast cancer awareness month and the Fall Color contest wind to a close, we thought we'd share some of the bolder pink applications from our inspiration files...

Like its bright yellow, orange, and green counterparts, pink delivers a loud statement regardless of its scope.

• 1. I keep expecting to dislike this picture, as I think spiral staircases are gorgeous in their own right, however I can't help but love the bold contrast.
• 2., 3. Hot pink seems all the more saturated when used in conjunction with a deep hue like navy blue or charcoal gray.
• 4.-8. My favorite use is in small touches in otherwise neutral rooms. The powerful color instantly updates a space, and can be switched out when your mood calls for a calmer scheme.

Could you live with pink?
