Design Around The Color Blush

There are oh so many puns I could make about blushing right now. The color blush has a lot to offer; it's fairly neutral, pairs naturally with metals, is restful, pretty and not overwhelming but still interesting. Blush can be both sophisticated or used in a baby's nursery; that is pretty dang versatile. While we are planning some updates to our bedroom as well as the upstairs bath (while breaking out the primer and caulk, why not, right?) blush seemed an obvious pair with the color navy, which we both love. While I'm putting together moodboards for myself, I thought I'd share one that I think has a great vibe and shows how blush can be so easily worked into a calm and happy space.

A few tips for working with blush; I like it best paired with strong neutrals or metallic that ground the space; think navy, copper, and charcoal. To keep it from feeling too feminine or frilly, pair it with something that balances it out. I think geometric patterns, like seen below, can add a lot of interest and be used to create a more bold, modern, or masculine space.

What do you think? Would you use blush in any space in your home, or stick to bedrooms and living rooms? Should I have worked more puns in?
