Another month, another epic color battle for the HGTV.com Color Team. Two colors — cheerful Pink Grapefruit and demure Camelhair — were so close that we literally couldn’t choose. So we threw it to HGTV.com Guest Editor Nancy Fire to make the final call. Here’s her verdict:

“This was a very hard decision, because I love using grapefruit with neutrals so in essence BOTH colors should win, hence your tie,” Nancy says. “But if one color has to win my vote, it’s grapefruit. I really love color, and grapefruit always looks fresh and updated.

Introducing Pink Grapefruit, our February 2014 Color of the Month! Let’s toast to our newest color with this Spicy Grapefruit Margarita, found over on The Life Styled. (Psst…It’s the perfect way to spice up your Valentine’s Day festivities.)

We love how this color bridges the gap between winter and spring. “I like that it’s a winter fruit, but the color feels fresh and springy,” says special projects editor Marianne, who pitched the winning hue. Even a small, er, squeeze of the color makes a huge visual impact. Here, designer Liz Carroll added grapefruit stripes on the ceiling to give this bedroom a playful touch:

Fabric is another great way to add color as we ease into spring “I started working with softer colors for the HGTV HOME product line in early 2013…and one of the trends for the whole line for 2014 is called “The Softer Side,” says guest editor Nancy Fire.  These three fabrics from the new “Softer Side” fabric collection in the “blushing” colorway feature cheerful grapefruit accents:
