“I believe in pink.”  — Audrey Hepburn

She’s not the only one, either. We reported on the pink trend at Highpoint Market back in April, and it’s just getting hotter. From the hottest of pinks to the subtlest blushes — and everything in between — here are some of our favorite ways to use pink.

Or swap the colors. Go with a soft pink on the walls — like Benjamin Moore’s Love and Happiness — to offset black and white furniture.

Too afraid to commit to pink long-term? Cluster pink accessories together, and switch them out when you get tired of them (read: never).

You could also go half-way with pink by painting half of a wall.  Go traditional and tape a crisp line, or get creative with this look. It’s like a pink cityscape!

If you’re more of the go-big-or-go-home types, Benjamin Moore’s Royal Flush is both bold and beautiful.

What are your favorite pairings with pink? Navy, white and gold are the classic pairings, but grays go so well with a midrange pink like Benjamin Moore’s Peach Parfait.

And finally, this combination of Benjamin Moore’s Cool Lava with natural wood furniture and huge landscape prints feels like a place where Hemingway would feel at home, don’t you think? Corals were popular in the early 20th century, so if you’ve got a home built during that time period, try it on for size.
