I can't help but cringe when I hear people say things like "I'm just not a green person" or "I really don't like orange". How can one just completely write off an entire colour? I mean there has to be a shade that you like!
As a lover of colour in general I can't think of one I wouldn't use in my home. Cherry red, burnt orange, mustard yellow, apple green, deep turquoise, robin's egg blue, and eggplant... I'd have a rainbow of feature walls if I had enough room!
I will admit that I'm guilty of always picking up the same coloured clothes when shopping (blue and black are my go to picks!) but when it comes to my home I think I've got a pretty good mix going on.
Pink is one of those colours that keeps getting a bad rap and I don't really know why. I've seriously considered painting my second bedroom a shade of pink or two and I love a (tall, dark, handsome) man in a pink polo shirt...
So if you are a hater its time to give pink another chance.

If you are a bit hesitant try taking baby steps - one punch of pink in a pillow, blanket, piece of art or furniture (slip covered perhaps) does the trick.

A staircase in bright bubble gum pink is so fun and adds a punch of colour to this mostly white space.

I think of paint (like hair dye) as temporary - if you don't like it, change it. I love the mix of fuchsia and green in this bedroom.
And to prove that I can walk the walk... besides a lovely pink throw in my living room (on my gray couch - love it!) and sweet beside lamps, here's how I add a little pink...
