French + Pink: A Love Affair

The soft, sweet and subtle hue of pink is trending in home decor today. But, the French have long had a love affair with the color. The color pink, in its softest shades, was used in everything from interior paints in palaces to velvets on sofas to couture gowns and objet d’art. Once considered a “little girl’s color” in American homes, the color has taken on mature roots in interiors today. And, we’re blushing over its French provenance.

Let’s take a look at some French-inspired images that are pretty in pink.
