Blush Crush: The Color of Love
The month of Love is here again and we welcome February by sharing our Blush Crush, the color that ‘softens’ Life with its lollipop and roses . . . The color pink so often is seen as a girly-girly color, too cute and bubbly, and all the rest of the phroo phroos. But we are here to say that if pink is applied tastefully and in combination with the right elements, it is a color that makes a great statement and speaks softy about true beauty. The last couple of years we see it more and more, proclaiming the power of pastels in every room of the house. Inspired by the month of Love, we are going to share our favorite rooms that the ‘feminine’ color has a dynamic input in all design elements.
This country house in Sancerre, France, for instance, displays immense charm and character. I don’t know if I could imagine such a treasure in any other color. The ombre of pink and blush here and there gives the facade depth and a lovely invitation, saying, “Please come right in!” Image Source: Architectural Digest.

This would be my kind of Pink spot! Looking out the window and sitting at this lucite desk with these gorgeous blush accents, for sure I could turn a hectic work day into something really rosy . . .
I don’t know about anyone else but I grew up disliking pink bathrooms. It was a staple sometime around the ’60s and it was a dated ‘grandma’ look. But tell me if I am mistaken that this bathroom by Borden Interiors Group isn’t to die for! I beyond love it. It inspires me to extend my horizons when I am picking up tile, knowing it is okay to take risks because it can definitely pay off.
This bathroom also is captivating with its simplicity and the beautiful marriage of the soft pink and neutrals. by Home Designing
There is no doubt that there is nothing boring in this kitchen. For many it may be too much, but in the eyes of Michelle Nussbaumer, anything is possible! The pink cabinets make a soft statement and they are the great liaison between the navy, the cement tile and the Mayan-inspired mural by artist Francisco Moreno.
Happy, clean, and elegant, this breakfast nook in a new traditional style by Suzanne Kassler is the perfect spot to gather, eat and play. It feels fresh and stimulates the senses with a dose of sophistication.
A painting by Catharina Chapuis in this beautiful setting speaks the tone of the color palette. Beautifully selected pieces one after the other in this traditional living room designed by Courteney Giles carry the pink/blush palette in true balance and harmony. As always pink, chocolate browns and neutrals make a great color marriage.

Pink stands out beautifully with dark grays and blacks, and especially softens the austere harsh surfaces with a tone saying, “just chill”! I love the juxtaposition of the painting in this clean contemporary setting! Image: French Quarter
I know many people may think that pink is a girl’s room color, but in Feng Shui, Pink is considered the number one color choice for a bedroom as a symbol of love and harmony. In the example above, you see that a bedroom can be sophisticated and clean with a touch of pink or blush and not be too candy-like. Image: Making nice in the Midwest
Or with an unexpectedly eclectic feel of vibrant combined colors and Scandinavian prints that we use here at Chroma Home.
As you see, pink it doesn’t need to be much… An accent wall painted pink is enough to make a huge impact even to most minimalistic decor. Image Source: The Socialite Family
If nothing else a pink door is plenty sufficient to give the soft accent touch. Image Source: Nordsjo
