When a situation is described as “rosy”, what does it bring to mind first? Some of the common words many think of are happy, sweet, innocent, vibrant, uplifted, or positive – and these are the same feelings you can bring into any space of your home when you incorporate these rosy tones. Rose isn’t the shade of bright pink some may first associate with a classic nursery or child’s bedroom, but a softer and more delicate shade that works beautifully for painting an entire room in the home.
Rose can be used anywhere in or on the home, and it’s a color that can be treated much like a neutral with a distinct pop. What many don’t realize is just how much experimentation room you have with rose, and how fun this color can be to play with when it comes to your interior design. A few tips for working with rosy tones in or on your home include:
Create an inviting entryway – Your entryway is where the entire vibe of your home begins, and it’s the space that creates your very own “first impression” to every person who steps through your door. An entryway that uses crisp white against warm shades of rose is one that invites guests inside with serene happiness and warm feelings of joy.
Balance in larger rooms – If you’re planning to go full rose on the walls of a larger living space in the home, there are really fun ways to create balance for the perfect interior look. For instance, the delicate look of rose on the walls of a living room is beautifully balanced with more masculine looking wood furniture pieces in striking mid-century designs. Pairing with neutral wood in cool tones will create an atmosphere with effortless balance.
Accent rose – Rose doesn’t have to be used on entire sets of walls or in entire spaces, as it also serves as a perfect subtle accent shade. A rose accent wall in a room can be a great way to tie in rose décor pieces and looks particularly elegant when paired with gold.
Keeping your exterior bright – Rose isn’t only to be used inside, and it can bring this same brightness and positivity to your exterior as well. A rose colored door or rose shutters that match rose toned patio furniture or outdoor décor can really give your exterior a fresh new look.
There are many different ways you can introduce rose to your space, and ways you can play with rose for many years after your paint job. As one of the most exciting “new” neutrals of the modern age, there are new ways to use rose and new ideas for incorporating it coming out every single day.
