Color Inspiration: Valentine’s Day Edition

A couple of weeks ago, I read an Etsy forum post in which an Etsy seller stated that any time she adds a mint colored item to her store, it would sell almost immediately. I was surprised. While I like mint okay, it’s not my favorite. It got me thinking about color and how our preferences for color are as different as we are from each other. I also realized that I’ve been in a bit of a color rut. Once I find a color combination I really like, I tend to use it over and over. The two that I use the most are Turquoise/Lemongrass and Gray/Pink.

I used to think that Pink and Red were two colors that did not go together. But lately I’ve really been digging that combo. I think J. Crew was the first place I saw the two together and thought, “Wow!” Here are a few of my favorite Pink and Red combos:

So what do you think? Do you like red & pink together? Or does it make you cringe?
