Hot Pink: Hot pink can always make a bold and daring statement, especially if you give it full power on all four walls. Perfect for a bedroom or creative home office, you probably don’t want to surprise your guy by using the hue on his man cave.

Extraordinary Pastels: Your ordinary lineup of spring pastels typically includes hues like lilac and light pink. But no one says you have to be ordinary. Opt for lighter shades of the bolder colors on gauzy fabrics to use for curtains or other accents. This move will leave you with some interesting pastel-like versions you can use to compliment and soften the more vivid colors.
