We had a little fun yesterday, but now we’re ready to reveal the color we’re really crushing on for April. This month’s color team meeting was a face-off of delicious proportions. The deliberations came down to two fruity hues: Abbi’s crisp, fresh apple green versus Marianne’s bright raspberry. We were torn: Both colors freshen up your home for spring, and they even look beautiful together:

So, what was our pick? Read on to find out.

We couldn’t resist raspberry! This softer, lighter take on fuchsia is deliciously fresh, whether in desserts

…or living room accents, like the striped rug, floral throw pillow and flower arrangements featured in this lovely mustard, white and raspberry living room. And check out that pink cord on the minimalist pendant lighting!

Large-scale floral prints are big this season on the runway and in the home. Get in on the spring trend with a raspberry-embellished print on the windows or the sofa. Isn’t this silver-gray and raspberry print from Romo just perfection?

You can even add an unexpected splash of raspberry to your bathroom, like Caldwell Flake Interior Design did with bold wallpaper in this retro-inspired space.
