Blush is a soft shade of pink that is delicate, glamorous, feminine and romantic. As such, it is frequently used in weddings and in fashion, but blush can be beautiful when used in the home as well and helps create a look of casual elegance, whether used on the furniture, the walls, textiles or even on small accent pieces.  And it is also a very versatile color both in terms of what other colors it can be paired with and also what decorating styles in can work with.

Bringing Blush Home

You can use blush as your backdrop or main color or can work it in to your existing room as an accent color.  On walls or upholstery, blush makes a real statement in a room and sets the tone for the space.

  1. Where can I find curtains like the blush deer-patterned ones in the third image beneath the “Combining with other colors” section? I’m in love and can’t find anything like them. Thanks!

  2. I’ve been looking for an ideal (preferably feminine) accent color for my white and grey bedroom and this is it – perfection!
    I am curious, though, with the rarity of true blush, how would you avoid slipping into pink or salmon? My eye for color isn’t always great.
