Pink? In The Living Room?

If traditional neutrals aren’t doing it for you, but you still want a soft look to your room, did you ever think pink?  DIY Blogger Nicole Balch of Making It Lovely tells Glidden® how it worked out for her.

Of course! Why not think pink? It isn’t a conventional choice, but it’s one that works well for me and my family. And yes, my husband is fine with it.
Pink? In The Living Room?
I knew I wanted a light color for my living room. There is a porch out front, and a large mature tree also casts a huge shadow over the house, so our old bungalow doesn’t get much natural light. The walls were already white when we moved into the house, but it felt plain.

A neutral beige, taupe, or gray paint color - each would have been fine choices - but I wanted something a little more fun. I’ve long loved pink paint colors, and it just felt like the right choice. Five years later, I’m still happy with the wall color! I kept it from getting too girly by using bold patterns for furniture and carpeting in more saturated hues, like vivid orange and mustard yellow.

Would you try pink in a main living space of your home? It’s a great option, and I’d love to see more people give it a try.
