Using Hot Pink Effectively

Using Hot Pink Effectively

We're still puzzled on how to use hot pink in our homes. On one hand, it's bold and crazy (and we admit that we loved Reese Witherspoon's hot pink Womb chair in Legally Blonde)...

...On the other hand, it seems like it could be garish, over-the-top, and hard match without going overboard (like Reese Witherspoons' entire dorm room in Legally Blonde). But then we spied this living room, courtesy of Domino's reader contest. (This entry is from finalist Steven from Des Moines).

Frankly, we're impressed by the sheer explosion of colors without being blown out. Hot pink footstools, lime green vases, all pulled together on an orange sofa? Talk about fearless. And it works!

P.S. We love those oversized lamps.
