"This is like that fleeting blush of pink in the sky before the sun it makes dark antique furniture look ravishingly beautiful. It's not an assertive color. It's demure, which gives it longevity.
"I really want to do blush — that powdery pink I'm seeing more and more in materials like stone and tile, as well as paint. It's a romantic color that warms up the essence of a room, and it doesn't look juvenile at all when you use it with metallic tones, like antique brass or bronze. Bring in some teal or gray-green for even more sophistication." — Jaime Rummerfield
