Pink isn't just for little girls' rooms. Sure, some 7-year-olds have rooms that look as though a pink bomb went off, but you can use pink to accent your home in a grown up way. Adding a soft -- or bold -- touch of this girly color to your home decor is fun and feminine.
In honor of Valentine's Day, we've rounded up different pink pieces of home decor to bring a little of the color of love to your tabletop, sofa or floor. There's no need to go overboard -- just a splash of pink adds a ton of pop.
Whoo-whoo! These orchid owls ($45) by Etsy seller Claylicious are absolutely adorable. The seller believes owls inspire wisdom, patience and good judgment. Who can't use a little of each? The handmade ceramic owls are sweet and dainty and not too pink -- they have a soft color and a great matte glaze finish. The mama and baby would be darling perched on a shelf.
Crochet pink area rug
Look down for a round, pink pop! Etsy seller Emily Kircher (find her on Facebook and her blog) created this super-bright and eye-catching crochet pink area rug ($112) with yarn that she hand-cut from salvaged fabric, collecting knit T-shirts and fleece fabric scraps from thrift stores. We love upcycling! Emily says that using fabric yarn creates a rug that is thick and soft, yet very durable. And, of course, it's oh-so-pink.
