I am not a pink kind of girl. I’m just not that in to pink (except the musician — I dig her). I am so anti-pink actually, that if I ever have a baby girl, you can bet that her nursery will not be any shade of pink.

So, why am I writing a blog post honoring the color pink? Good question. Actually, National Pink Day has forced me to do a few things that are great exercises for anyone redecorating anything: Think outside the box, stretch beyond your comfort zone (aaahhhh) and don’t discount any idea too quickly. There is so often a good reason for those lightbulb moments.
This is my one of my favorite HGTV makeovers that incorporates pink. It’s a room that, to me, seems completely inspired. I love how Vern Yip created a family room that a motorcycle-loving dad and his daughter both could enjoy. Shades of gray and silver are excellent complements to fuschia pink pops of color.

Even if you’re not that in to pink or could care a lick about National Pink Day, think again. You can still celebrate the day, perhaps with a pink confection? Oh, yeah.

A pink drink? That I can do.
