Sometimes all it takes is one photo to start a brand new color crush. It happened to me today, thanks to a stunning display of bright purply-pink from Design Addict Mom that popped up on my Instagram feed. She’s dubbed this rose hue “spring’s it color,” and I have to agree. A shade lighter than our March Color of the Month, Orchid, it’s the perfect hue to embrace the new season.

Rose and Mint Kitchen Color Palette

Paired with dark and light shades of gray, it’s a modern take on the classically chic pink, black and white combination. A hint of mint adds more spring freshness. And who could resist that mini vintage-style refrigerator? It’s equally charming atop these pink-glazed eclairs from Sweetapolita.

I don’t think of myself as a “pink person,” but I’ve found that I’ve been more drawn to the color these past few months. Are soft pinks and purples growing on you? Would you add them to your home this season? Let me know in the comments below.

    You KNOW how I feel about the color rose – cabbage roses and shades of pink and pale green are part of my mental color palette – but it can always be extended to include greys, beiges and deeper accent shades. I think rose is a LOVELY shade for a tablecloth on a porch or deck against the backdrop of a fresh Spring green.

    Great space and use of color. Glad to see someone using a color other than stainless Just looked at HGTVs 40 white kitchens and not one of them had anything other than stainless steel. Perhaps designers might realize that there are many among us who don't care for fingerprints all over our appliances and design with other color.

    I've used pink for years! My living room walls are pink and they are softer than white and brighter than beige!! I also did my kitchen in a littler pink and with rich brown cabinets, the room is inviting. I threw in a little lime green and …WOW!

    I have the green tiles as a backsplash with a pinkish grout (these were chosen by the previous owners) and the cabinets are a pickled pink stain (think late '80s early '90s). I have a dark granite, but I despise the pink stained cabinets and the grout. I'm not fond of the dark granite either, but while I like the pink above, I don't know about having it in my home…as I've kind of already got it there and am not fond of it. I've got to think a bit more on that…it's a little too bubble gum for me.
