Show your home some love

Today we thought we'd use Valentine's Day as an excuse to inspire you to look at reds and pinks in a fresh new way for your home.

Reds and pinks are too often reserved for girls' bedrooms - but these two colours are surprisingly versatile - from sweet and pretty to bold and sophisticated - and can be the perfect choice for a variety of spaces.
In fact, nothing perks up a room like decorating with red or pink, but many are afraid to introduce this powerful colour into their home. Fortunately, there are many creative ways in which you can introduce these shades without feeling overwhelmed.

Of course people also shy away from bold reds and pinks because these colours have a reputation as being very difficult colours to decorate with, often needing upwards of 6 coats to cover. Reds also often don't wear well either, being difficult to clean without leaving a mark.

The good news is that, with Benjamin Moore Aura, you can be sure that it will always cover in two and can be cleaned without marking, for a stunningly beautiful and long lasting finish.
