Red and pink are the colors of Valentine’s Day, and while we incorporate these colors into themed home parties, these colors are actually great to use year-round in your décor! We believe that no color should be limited to a holiday, so with that, we share with you our favorite ways to add red and pink in your home.
Red is a color that is often found in interior design, however, you must be mindful of how much or how little you use, as too much red could be overwhelming, or too little of it could simply not be enough for a proper impact.
If you use red as an accent color, it will draw your attention to other furnishings in your home. In this instance, and in the room below, red has the power to enable you to see design and detail outside of the color, such as the details of the below fireplace.
With pink, this color can look awesome and grown-up if and only if the correct shade is used. For a fresh and bright feel to your furniture, use pink accent pillows; this will go a long way in your living room. Pink flowers are simple, low-key, and ideal for giving a neutral room a jolt of energy, while pink artwork can do wonders for a room as the focal point.
When it comes to the shade of pink, a soft, light shade is best to create a calming environment, while a darker pink on your walls or flooring will surely make a statement in a big room, such as your living room or bedroom.

From the décor and furniture, to the appliances and flooring, it’s important to have a home that is well-maintained. With winter upon us, our homes, especially our floors, are prone to be damaged from winter debris. To learn how you can protect your floors, read our top floor care tips for the cold!
Door Mats Will Be Your Best Friend
Use door mats both inside and outside each entryway, as they will be the first stop in keeping the winter elements outside. Door mats are also great at keeping moisture at bay, so don’t overlook the power that mats can have in your home this winter!
Salt can scratch hardwood and easily get lost in your carpet, so staying up to date with your vacuuming will prevent hidden damage to your floors. We recommend vacuuming daily for maximum preservation in high traffic areas.
Have Cleaning Supplies on Hand
It’s important that you have cleaning products in your closet or in a cabinet. Brooms, mops, an iRobot, and our Resista cleaning products are all great options that you can use when it comes time to clean your floors this winter.
Invest In Rugs
Rugs in your entryway and hallways are not only perfect for adding character to your floors, but they also prevent excess dirt and water from damaging your floors. While the rugs will hold onto dirt and water, you can easily clean your area rugs with your vacuum or use one of our cleaning products to pick up the residue.
