Pale pink gets a bad rap as being too feminine. But what's wrong with that? I have used pops of the controversial hue throughout my home styling and in fact it's a bit of a color crush.
Yes, I live alone which means there is no male naysayer in sight. However, I think it's perfectly acceptable to embrace such a fun color choice – especially when catching a glimpse can put me in a better mood and lighten my spirit!
One way to stay safely on the more subtle side of pink is to go with a dustier shade that's more on the mauve side of the spectrum. This Color Plus Dressy Rose Double Gourd with White Table Lamp is a great example because the abstract modern shape adds extra interest to the piece. If you have a lamp you love and are looking for a way to reinvent it, then drum lamp shades might be the way to go. A cheaper and easier way to get a new look!
I love mixing pale pink with burnished brass pieces because the warmth in both tones play off of each so well! The Rio Brass with White Shade Robert Abbey Pendant Light is a pretty antique tone that will easily mix in with existing pieces, no matter what you room you hang it in.
The Island Party Time Giclee Brushed Nickel Pendant lends a touch of pink to your space without making the color a focal point. It also includes shades of green, blue, and brown and like its name suggests brings an air of fun to the room!
For more antique brass accents, check out the Jonathan Adler Ventana Natural Brass Floor Lamp! The tripod legs and ebony wood are sleek and modern while its natural linen shade lend a natural touch.
The Craftmade Bloom Ceiling Fan with Light is so much fun! I can imagine using it in a room that's otherwise very simple – think white walls – to make its organic shape a real focal point.
With the Fillable Glass with Gold Cylinder Table Lamp everything is left up to you! Fill the glass cylinder with metallic pink balls for the holidays, sweet pink seashells from your trip to the beach come summer – the possibilities are endlessly customizable. Or if you like, leave it empty and enjoy the delicacy of this pretty piece.
