Raspberry Splash

Who’s afraid of a little raspberry pink in their apartment? Okay, so maybe you answered “me!” but consider some of the subtle touches (yes, I said “subtle” even though it’s considered an outstanding color) that can be applied to your living space. Or just enjoy the idea of it…like I do. My house is totally ivory on white with shades of brown and chartreuse. How I would love to create a new space with a touch of raspberry! Love this raspberry velvet chair itself. The wall I could perhaps do without. Too Pepdol Bismal for me. Image via Decor Pad.
