Rose. Rose can be an unlikely choice for homeowners because of the bad reputation it’s garnered over the years. This color, as well as mauve, was extremely popular in the 1970s and ’80s—but these days, not so much. However, rose can look chic if used with an abundance of white. It’s a very relaxing color and it’s also on the warm spectrum, so you can have a cozy space that feels serene. And it’s a color that looks very romantic in the bedroom.Paint colors to try: Fresh Peonies and Swan White by Glidden

Flowers for the morning. Place blooms where you will see them first thing in the morning — they will start your day off on the right foot. Try a small florist’s bucket filled with zinnias or a posy of roses on the bedside table, or a single long stem in a bud vase on your breakfast tray.
This shade of pink has a touch of brown, making it less pastel and more neutral. It’s a sophisticated soft pink for grownups. Paired with plenty of white-painted wood, the room has a charming and comfortable vibe — perfect for a guest room.
