This Fashion House Just Called the Color of the Moment; Here’s How We Are Bringing It Home
It’s here to shake sage up.

It can be hard to keep up with fashion’s international show circuit—a whirlwind of styles, colors, and textures—but when a famed maison like Valentino goes all in on one single color, you take note. This season in Paris, creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli put on a powerful monochromatic display in a solitary hue: hot pink.
“Pink is a form of freedom that exists maybe nowhere else in the realm of color,” the brand wrote on Instagram, also touting the color as one of community, energy, and love. After a few years of coddling ourselves with calm-inducing shades (we still love you, sage), we’re pumped to weave a bit of liberation into not only our wardrobe but also our homes. We’re not necessarily suggesting you go full Valentino (unless you’re as confident as this Brooklyn-based homeowner), but we’re all for embracing it in small doses, so we’re spreading the love with our hottest home accessory picks.
For Your Bar Cart
We’re loving the handcrafted variations that show up on the surface of these one-of-a-kind glasses created in Beacon, New York, by Pierre Bowring. Liven up your bar with a touch of magenta or simply swap these with the plain water vessels in your kitchen cabinet.
For a Corner Lacking Pizzazz
Made completely out of acrylic, this structure’s star-shaped base acts almost like a giant kaleidoscope for your living room with the way it refracts light. Stick it in a spot that is in need of a sculptural touch (just make sure it’s a sunny one so you get the full effect).
For Picnic Vibes Inside
The tablescape staple gets an upgrade with a sweet scalloped edge and a two-tone plaid pattern.
For the Accent Pillow Obsessed
Stitched by hand in Italy with the perfect combination of block-printed magenta fabric, gold cotton fringe, and artist Paboy Bojang’s striking signature red zipper, this pillow from Block Shop brings haute couture home.
For Your Spring Fetes
Made by a small group of Khmer women from Cambodia, these woven pieces can brighten up brunch when used as placemats or add a little buzz to your afternoon tea as a tray.
For Next-Level Lounging
This fuchsia chair by Anonima Castelli is as comfortable as it is showstopping: The foam is printed directly on a set of elastic bands, making it superstable and cushy. Keep it as a solo piece or link it up with multiple chairs for a sofalike setup.
For Old Receipts (or a Fiddle-Leaf Fig)
Intricately woven jipijapa palm leaves can add rich texture and pattern to any space thanks to the exceptional craftsmanship of the Colombian artisans who made this wastebasket. We like the idea of thinking outside the bin and using it as a planter.
