It all started when Alexa discovered the French blog Le Dans La and started sighing a lot in the office. Sarah and I would glance over and see her mooning over a pale pink wall, or a blush-colored light, or a rose-tinged set of glassware. Then we all got a bit obsessed with the color and wondered if we were turning into girly girls. But we decided no, the trick is that the pink has to be perfectly pale; just a tinge of blush. Then it's not too cloying and too overtly feminine. Here are five low-commitment ways to bring a hint of pink into the boudoir.
