A Hint of Pink for the Home

Recently, the editors of Remodelista got a bit obsessed with the color pink. To keep it from being too girly, they realized the color has to be perfectly pale; just a tinge of blush. Then it’s not too cloying and too overtly feminine. Here are four low-commitment ways to bring a hint of pink into the boudoir.

Pink can be nice in small doses.

Not crazy about the pale pinks, and only like touches of bright pink here and there.

If you'll look at medieval manuscripts, you'll see that the Normans and other tough guys went into battle and sat on thrones wearing pink. The amount of dyestuff needed to produce a strong red fabric was only for the wealthiest. The idea that certain colors are reserved for certain sexes is silly. We have enough real restrictions in our lives, why add a superstitious one?

I like my pink a lot brighter than that.

The more I see posts from remodelista, the more I wonder what they are doing on the care2 site. Decorating our homes just for the heck of it, with no concern for the natural resources wasted, is pretty much the complete opposite of what this site was originally.
