Or, is it passing through quickly? I barely gave it a second thought when blush (or something close to it) was named “color of the year.” But, it has slowly grown on me and just seems to work so well with the blue and white and green combo I love so much. I’m also loving the softer side of pink with richer shades of orange, black and even red.
Our tan bedroom is getting some attention soon. I first thought white walls, then mossy green walls, but nothing was sticking for me—until I landed on blush. Well, “Bashful” by Benjamin Moore to be exact.
It’s pink without being too sweet, and has just enough peach in it to make it feel neutral. (Never did I think I’d be so excited about a pink/peach color for our room. . . )
Since this will be the first my husband hears of us having a
pink blush bedroom, I’m going to share the overall plan so he won’t get freaked out. . . or teased at work. Imagine this:
I hope the blush trend sticks around for a while after I paint our bedroom. This house has made me want to experiment with new colors, and I’m having so much fun with it. Of course, it helps that I can paint every square inch of it myself, just standing in a chair.
What do you think of blush/bashful/or-whatever-you-want-to-call-it? Would you use pink in a “grown-up” space?
