The month of October makes us think of changing leaves, football, and cooler days. October also makes me think of the color pink. October is breast cancer awareness month and I love seeing how pink shows up on all types of items such as clothing, shoes, stationary, coffee cups, and even home decor. Using the color pink in home decor can be sophisticated, playful, soft and overall very pretty.
Pink can also be a challenge in home decor. Get the color too bright and it looks like a little girl’s playroom. Too dark and it can look like you painted your room with highlighters. The secret to working with pink is to balance it well with the right neutral colors and bright accents.
To acknowledge the significance of the color pink in October, I have pulled together some awesome ways to add pink to your home decor.
Pink walls may not be your thing, or you can’t get your husband to support the idea of a pink colored living room, bedroom, or even bathroom, but you can bring the awesome color of pink into your home with some simple home decor items. And I promise, these are so pretty and mix so well in a home that your husband won’t even notice all the feminine touches in the room.

I have to admit, and you may have noticed this if you have viewed some of my other posts, but orange is actually my favorite accent color. The color pink, well it just makes me smile, and after working on this post, I’m very tempted to add some little touches of pink in a few of my rooms.
