As we all know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, which is why this post will be dedicated to incorporating pink accents into your home decor. Whether it’s a hot pink chair or a new rug with a light pink pattern, there’s always a way to sprinkle the color throughout your home. If you don’t think you can handle a lot of pink then settle for a few candles!
This is for the bold and beautiful. It can be a little overwhelming to have a hot pink piece of furniture or hot pink curtains but it’ll bring life to any room! A lot of the time we associate hot pink with teenage girls but it can be extremely elegant when used for an accent wall. For example, paint all the walls white in one room then choose one wall to paint a quatrefoil pattern with pink. It’ll draw attention to that particular wall but it won’t be overwhelming. Another way to incorporate this shade is through pillows. Whether your couch is brown, black or lime green, pink will add a little something to the dark colors without clashing. Now if you’re feeling extremely bold… paint your front door! People will instantly spot your house, in a good way.
Light pink is for those who enjoy the color but don’t want it to be the main attraction of a room. If you have built in bookshelves, go ahead and paint the back of the shelf so that there’s a backdrop to your items. As mentioned above, candles are a subtle way to show off the color without being obnoxious. Reupholster a white chair with plush light pink solid or patterned fabric to make it more interesting. If you’re feeling extremely crafty, sew in some light pink flowers onto your comforter, this looks great when move of your furniture in the room is white!

Pink flowers always add a great touch to any occasion so why not put some out for the whole month! A hot pink accent chair will not only be comfortable to sit in but it will brighten up the room as well. If you’re feeling crafty and have some time on your hands, paint a design onto your white dishes. It will make them interesting and you can brag to all your friends that you made them.
