Raspberry Sorbet

Pink is a feminine hue, but that shouldn't stop anyone from including a dash of raspberry in their decor scheme. Whether you want to use a more muted shade or go all out with a bright pop of colour, raspberry is more versatile than you think.

Want to test the waters? Flirt with the colour by buying a new lamp shade or cushions. Look for neutral items and liven them up with some raspberry trim or decorative accents. If you're a super fan already, dive in full force with new upholstery, window treatments or a designer rug.

Below are some of my favourite rooms that incorporate various shades of raspberry. Some are subtle and some are out there, but I love them all!

Love this post, this makes me want sorbet!! Raspberry is such a fresh spring/summer color-I love it! Plus it reminds me of the gorgeous Ruthie Sommers raspberry sorbet sofa!

p.s. I love the cocktail Friday recipes. Great idea!

I love your idea of adding raspberry to a room- it's not too girly pink but it's not crossing over to red yet either..it's a perfect happy medium!
