When applied in creative and unexpected ways, rosy hues have us tickled pink.

A Draper home commits to farmhouse flair in curated details and sweet style. Here, a soft baby pink dresses the cabinetry in the young girl’s bathroom. “We really had some fun here,” says interior designer Christie Lewis. A shapely brass mirror and patterned wallpaper pair with the pastel hue to give the space an air of maturity.

The owners of this rambler-style home craved materials and finishes that distinguished their forever house from others. “The owners didn’t want to clutter with art,” says designer Parker Lamborn of John Martine Studio. “Instead, they wanted the details to be the art of the house.” The eye for detail extended to every room of the home, including the laundry room where built-in cubbies receive a dressing of vivid coral.

This rose-colored dressing room is everything you’d expect from social-media sensation Rachel Parcell—timeless, feminine, stylish and yes, blushed with pink. “I wanted it to look like the inside of a posh, elegant boutique,” Parcell says.
