Pink and red don’t have to be tacky. Think plush, smooth materials, like velvet. Embrace your inner royalty and let rich hues of red make bold statements around the house.

Can you imagine a lush red velvet chair at your vanity? How about a cheerful pink couch to lounge on during Saturday marathons of your favorite show? If you can picture a beautiful bouquet of red and pink flowers in the center of your table, you can picture pink and red design in your house.

Team up your new favorite pair with other color options to create different effects. Rock red, pink, and teal for a playful punch. Bring in orange and yellow to invite warmth into any room. Use grey, black, and white to opt for classic chic. Navy, light blue, and soft green will create a coastal hotel feel.

Still not sold? Vary shades by selecting light pinks and orange-reds. Consider opting for pops of these romantic colors within your wallpaper, decor, or bedding. Add more as you suddenly start to realize pink and red pair perfectly, both together and within your interior design.
