How to add pink and red to a grown up’s home

Red and pink not your thing? Think again.

Red may seem too bold and pink may seem too tween but here’s how you can incorporate them into your home while keeping it classy and chic.

Bedroom

We often opt for muted, neutral tones in the bedroom but a bold hue like red could brighten the space and add some dimension. If red seems to drastic, try a shade of pink like Cherry Blossom Pink that experts say can help aid a better night’s sleep.

Bathroom

Update the run-of-the-mill bathroom look of white walls and blue tiles and opt for a splash of colour instead. Take a daring step and try a deep red; the intense colour is sure to turn your bathroom into your sanctuary. If you spend a lot of your time in the bathroom a.k.a. makeup station, go for a fun pop of pink to lift your mood and liven up the space.
