Splash Trend - Pink vs Man

How to add pink in your home without upsetting the men in your life.....
We all know many men are adverse to the color pink.  I know, I love it when a man wears pink, but those men are rare.  Pink is a soothing color and maybe all that testosterone can't handle it.

Is this too pink and feminine for your man?  Maybe so, It's Betsy Johnson's Home.

Here are some ways to sneak in pink without making your man feel like he doesn't live there:

Pink walls - This is the boldest attempt to incorporate pink but if you can get away with it, go for it.  Use subtle hues of pink like....

SW 7112 Pinkish- this might be nice in bathrooms, living rooms and bedrooms.  
Especially if you want a light, soothing room.
SW 7113 Roseate

Maybe a more neutral pink....
SW 6050 Abalone Shell

I would try to stay light and verging on peach.  Going with pinks that have too much cool tones look like a little girls room.  Examples of subtle pink.....

The big screen TV fits in nicely!  May be a bit to cool of a pink on the walls.

Maybe try a bolder approach.....
Verging on too much pink?

Just an accent wall maybe the best option.  
There are some great pink wallpapers out there too like the stripe above!

SW 6579 Gala Pink 

Pink accents in a room maybe a better less obvious choice.

Love the pink chairs!

I want this in my living room!!!

 Pink in the dining is best.  It compliments the color of food without over stimulating you like red can.

My favorite plate-

Flowers are always a great way to bring in pink!

Is there a way to find out the wall color used in the first bathroom (the one with the tub)?

Sorry, I don't know. You could try using Sherwin Williams Chip It app. If you select a picture it will try to match the colors in the room.
