"Void of color" becomes the choice of color too often for too many, as people make the decision to play it safe and conservative and risk-free. On the other end of the spectrum, are those who want to follow every trend that comes down the home decoration pike. Current color directions point straight to red as being the most popular for home furnishings and interior design. All shades of red, from the oranges all the way through to the purples. So, in fashion as well as interior design, pink indeed has become the new red. And it's not just a traditional pink, but fuchsia, pale petal pink, red-orange, and everything in between.
