Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas

How do you call the “new” pink? Honeysuckle! You can see it as pink with hint of coral. The interior design magazines are saying that you should add some of it to your home this year. Here’s what I believe: Your home, my dear is yours only. Being open to new colors can be very fun and very stimulating, but only do that if you already like the color or add it slowly by “bits” so you don’t start regretting the change and waste your time and money. If you’d like to add some “honeysuckle” (aka pink) and need to be encouraged to do it, here’s what Pantone says of it: “A colour for all seasons. Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new colour, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It’s a colour for every day — with nothing ‘everyday’ about it.”

So, if you’re ready and want to feel inspired, here are some choices:

Love Me Softly

You can add a touch of pink, there’s no need to make it too “loud”. What about this super cute art? I’m in love with it! Designed by the sweet Jen Ramos of Made By Girl.

Having Fun

Why not?


I like the ideas of putting books of the same color together.

Mix Mix

Fresh flowers, a throw, a beautiful chair… what else do I need?

Like a Dream

So pretty and not hard to do it in your house.


Not ready to buy a pink piece of furniture or paint the walls? What about something simple yet pretty like this notecard?


This is a very soft color for the wall and pillows. It looks great with gray.

Pink On The Table



I just love when I see a “serious” chair with a fun fabric.


Very sophisticated.

Like a Princess

Very feminine and I love the mirrored nightstand.

Love It or Leave It

A piece with personality.


It feels really summer-ish and fun. As you can see here, pink and sage goes very well together.


This chair is a show-stopper! Love it!

Remember, you don’t need to create “pink land” in your house, but if you want to experiment a new color, I think you should do it, as long you like it in the first place.

So, after seeing all of these pictures, what do you think? Is “honeysuckle” for you?

Guys, I’ll be volunteering at my son’s school today but I’ll back later. Make sure to leave a comment. I really want to know if you like this new color! Talk to you soon! 🙂

Update: I came back from my son’s school and the four of us (hubby, son, daughter and myself) went to play in the snow outside… and I had the courage to walk for the 1st time on our frozen river! It was so fun! I had to share it with you all! We had a great time! Next time, I’ll bring my camera to take pictures and show you guys!

I’m loving reading your comments!!! 🙂

  1. A pillow or blanket, sure, but when a color like this is overdone, the results can be disastrous! =) All of these rooms, though, do a great job with using it very subtley, which is truly the goal when using “pink.”

  2. Hello Cole!

    Yep… we need to find “balance” with color… just everything else in this life. 🙂

    Have a Super Day!

    As you probably know, I’m not much of a pink girl but you’ve found some terrific ways of adding a touch of honeysuckle to many spaces.

    Good Morning, Lu

    Yes, I’ve seen this color almost everywhere lately. I love pink. I think it’s a sensual, romantic & emotional color.
    Have a great day!

  5. Renee said,

    OH my, that chesterfield sofa in Honey Suckle…FABULOUS!
    To be single again, just so I could have that! haha!

    Morning, L.

    since i have sons only, haven’t lived with much pink (though i love wearing it occasionally). for interiors i like the hotter hues more than the “too dusty” ones which remind me of some horrible mauves in the 80s. for fashion i LOVE the soft ethereal european pink of pointe shoes (see my blog header). and i love the look of pink ginger tropical flowers in my kitchen!

    thanks for visiting me, and no, i’m not Swedish (just a poser) but i married a Norwegian so that earns me a few Scandanavian points right?

    have a lovely day!

    I love the sofa and chairs! So pretty!
    Oh btw, we’re “neighbors” – I am originally from Peru 😀

  8. Nichole@40daysof said,

    I guess I’m okay with it, since I painted my guest bath light pink. But I doubt that I’ll be adding huge amounts of pink to my decor.

  9. Sílvia said,

    Olá, Luciane.
    Ideias inspiradoras!
    Deixei um selo para você lá no blog.

  10. traci zeller designs said,

    I love it! I just painted my guest bath pink … and I really love that turquoise chair paired with the pink throw and flowers!

  11. Stephanie said,

    Pink is a color that happens to be extremely flattering on me, since I have pink undertones in my skin, so the other day I bought a cardigan in “honeysuckle” from Banana Republic, knowing that it was the Pantone color of the year. The color just feels really good to me right now, fresh and uplifting and even healing in this very gray and gloomy time of year. I love the bright blanket folded over the back of the bed–I’m going to look for something like for our bedroom, which has grey walls and white curtains. Definitely makes me feel happier!

  12. design chic said,

    Beautiful and subtle ways to add the newest color in to our home. I’m obsessed with the french chair…needed this photo for our post today!! Hope you’re having a wonderful day ~

  13. Tereza said,

    Oi, Lu!
    O post hoje está incrível, como de costume, me apaixonei pelos quartos, super alegres, em especial o primeiro com aquela almofada da macaquinho, show!
    Dá uma olhada no nosso blog, você vai gostar.

    Haaaaaaaaaaaa- sooooooooo beautiful- every single photo is a pearl, Lovely♥

    THIS bed♥

    all those chairs and wonderful colored sofas- and I love this white chair in front of the books with the dark walls- so adorable- I´d like to adopt it NOW :-))

    Enjoy your day, wonderful Luciane-


  15. Modern Country Style said,

    I love this colour pink. Warm and inviting.

    BUT (and it’s a big one!), I HATE the idea of there being a colour for the year. Grrr. Interior fashions make me mad. I love watching the fashions to draw ideas from but hate it when it gets so prescriptive. Grrr….again!

    I love your take on it though…just to add little touches if you want to.


  16. Sandy Henderson said,

    LOVE that summer bedroom!

  17. le petit cabinet de curiosites said,

    I am a big fan of pink . My entrance is pink and I have a lot of details in pink . I love this new pink

  18. Donnie said,

    That is a lovely color but I’m only incorporating it in pink flowers because blue is really what I want to live with. Lovely photos.

  19. Dr Alexandra Brooks said,

    LOVE the new pink. Actually, I love any pink. Every other thing in my house is some shade of pink or other. It’s the color of love… how bad can that be?

  20. classiccasualhome.com said,

    I SO agree with you about loving a “serious” chair in a fun fabric! I finished our guest room with that pink before it was declared in 🙂 …influenced by living in Florida for a while. Makes you happy.

  21. Luciane, You find the best images! I have seen a lot of pink on blogs lately and these are all new. Great job with the post! My favorite image is the ‘mix mix’ the one with the turquoise and a little pink interjected in. The notecards are darling too! xo Sherri

  22. Carol Maryott said,

    All fabulous ! I really like the “serious” chair with fun fabric. Great post.
