Pale Pink

A passion for pink is the focus of this feminine home. The creative yet soothing pink hue is made even more visually interesting with a variety of textures, shapes, and layers. Adding curved lines, hints of mid-century design, and soft complementing colors enhance the feminine feel in the room and complete the look. Plus, keeping the window trim and shelves a natural color harmonizes with the pale pink and gold finishes.

Powder Blue

Shades of blue can create feelings of freshness and calmness. This desired outcome was achieved with these beautiful powder blue cabinets. Combined with elegant marble tops and a clean white subway tile splash, this is a kitchen you will never want to leave! While cheerful and uplifting, keep in mind that the perfect shade of pastel blue can be difficult to select. Pastel colors can appear differently depending on how the light hits them. Consider doing a patch test to ensure you like how the color looks after you apply it.
