Make Me Blush

Happy Valentine's Day! Are you seeing red everywhere today? After all, full-bodied vibrant reds are Cupid's signature color. Not for me. Yet, in the spirit of the season, I'm ready to meet red, let's say, 10% of the way. Because when RED gives WHITE a little peck on the cheek, we have blush, and I am smitten. In fact, I covet these blushing beauties.

#1. I'll take this coconut mango nut candle in a blush ombré vessel any day and any Valentine's Day.

#2. A little Deco goes a long way. I cast my lot with these shiny lacquer book ends in the fairest of light pinks.

#3. Pink is not precious. You can step on it. I love the broken plaid design of this blush-and-cream rug. A lovely neutral underfoot.

#4. An abstract study of nudes in all their glorious blushing flesh tones? That's my Rorschach interpretation of this painting and I'm sticking to it.

#5. It's not likely I'd paint a wall pink (but see #9), but I'd cover it in this variegated blush wallpaper in a palpitating heartbeat. Swoon.

#6. Tone-on-tone blush tones kiss and make pretty on this pillow.

#7. Gold and blush are lovely bedfellows. I'd put this blush marble and gold lamp on a bedside table any night of the week.

#8. Tom Ford calls this lipstick Creme Conque. He gets a kiss for that.

#9. If I were to paint a wall pink (see #5), this hue from Benny Moore would be my go to.
