Color My World....Red and Pink

Surprise! We are changing course this week since Valentine's Day is almost upon us. In thinking about this special upcoming "Day of Love" I thought it might be fun to take a look at some decorating done in ......yes, RED AND PINK. I know these colors aren't for everyone (I love both!), however take a look and let me know what you think!

First, here's a little "Red and Pink 101"

RED represents the color of love, passion & beauty. It is also the most emotionally intense of all of the colors. Red is said to stimulate a faster heartbeat and breathing. Light red represents joy, sexuality, passion, sensitivity, and love. Dark red is associated with vigor, willpower, leadership, and courage.

PINK represents romance, love, and friendship. Pink, a pale shade of red, is said to be the most romantic of all of the colors, bearing gentleness and tranquility.
