I’ve always been a little too cynical to get caught up in Valentine’s Day, but I do enjoy a good excuse to eat chocolate and buy pink things. Hot pink is one of my girly guilty pleasures, and I love seeing it used in home decor. All-out pink rooms are too much for me, but an accent piece in hot pink adds an unexpected pop of color, and isn’t too objectionable for any male housemates. It’s also surprisingly versatile – use as an accent color in a neutral room, mixed with other bold, eclectic colors like orange and green, or as a preppy pop with blues and whites.
