Decorating With The Color Raspberry

Raspberry is a gorgeous and trendy color, that is a bit more chic and sophisticated than most shades of pink, making it a popular choice for updating interiors in everything from traditional to modern homes. A grown-up shade of pink, raspberry is more on the red side and decorating with raspberry will give your interiors energy and playfulness without making them too ultra feminine or sickeningly sweet. 

While gathering images for you I was surprised to see that people are referring to ever shade of pink on the planet as raspberry. I have see everything from burgundy to neon pink. The reason I have added several pictures of raspberries in the body of the blog is to keep your eyes focused on what color raspberry actually is.

Those of you who follow me know I am partial to old world interiors so you will see the old and the new all done up in the color raspberry. These interiors are simply DELICIOUS and decorating with the color raspberry will show the world you have GREAT TASTE!

The color raspberry is like the yummy fruit itself..... a bit sweet, a bit tart, sort of a rich, edgy reddish pink.

I love this colorful and fun dining room. Raspberry looks so good with dark colors like black, gray, and even navy. The touch of yellow in the painting adds so much!!

And of course there is chartreuse, raspberry loves it!! In a room with this much chartreuse you want the raspberry to accent in small doses.

What can I say....mouthwatering perfection. Raspberry velvet is so rich in it's depth and texture.

Since raspberry is little more subtle than hot pink, it blends better with warm colors.

Darker rooms also need colors that are more saturated, since there's less light available. Raspberry shines as an accent color for these darker rooms. Black, gray, and raspberry is a color combination that gives your room an Art Deco feel.

The color raspberry is versatile and can be used to accompany neutral color tones as well as bold and bright choices. Try a raspberry painted floor.
