They say life is better when you can see it through rose-colored glasses, but we’d go one further: things really improve when you bathe the whole world in pretty rose pink. You don’t even need the special glasses when you have a pink neon sign, which is why we believe it’s such an absolute essential — no matter where in your home you place it, the calming glow of strawberry light is downright guaranteed to make everything a little more pleasant, pretty, and pacifying. In so many ways, a pink neon sign is the ultimate — one you just can’t go wrong with. Who doesn’t want to live inside of a sunset?
Since soft pink is just about the easiest shade around to imagine any neon sign on, have fun trying it out any which you please. But, in case you’re looking for a little guidance, here’s how we recommend getting the absolute most of this luscious color.
Perfect places for pink
The first stop for a pink neon sign is without a doubt your bedroom. Soft pink is quite simply the most flattering light that exists, blanketing your whole body in a cushy cute glow that brings out the best tones in anyone. Don’t just take it from us — even Vulture says, unequivocally, that “the most flattering light bulb casts you in lovely pink.” And we could all use a little bit of flattery in the boudoir, right?
But a pink neon sign will work just about anywhere you’re looking for a little mood lighting. Have a living room setup with a record player and cushy couch, all perfect for entertaining guests? Soft pink in the den will make any gathering space even extra irresistible. Love a long luxurious bubble bath? Soft pink will make your bathroom like a 5-star spa you’ll never want to leave.
What’s pretty in pink
And what LED neon sign works best in soft pink? Again, you can’t really go wrong, but anything as sweet as sugar is bound to fit the bill. We’d start, of course, with the Big Big Heart in soft pink, a true Yellowpop icon candy-coat any wall. Any hearts, in fact, areideal: the Geometric Heart, the Scribble Heart, the Angel & Devil (designed by Mathilde), and Radiant Love (a collaboration that’s part of our incredible Keith Haring collection) are truly cute and cuddly additions to your home. Amour in soft pink is also pretty great at understanding the assignment, too.
If you’re looking for a custom LED neon sign in soft pink, one that expresses your own words, why not pick a famous phrase, quote, or song lyric that’s nostalgic, gushy, or romantic? “A rose is a rose is a rose is a rose,” “Did my heart love until now?,” “When love is not madness it is not love,” “I love you more than yesterday but less than tomorrow,” “If it’s wrong to love you than I don’t want to be right,” “We belong together,” “I wish I knew how to quit you.”
Heck, go super cheesy and pick a line from your favorite ’90s movie that made you cry:
Jerry Maguire: “You had me at hello” or “You complete me”
Titanic: “I’ll never let go, Jack”
As Good as It Gets: “You make me want to be a better man”
Pretty Woman: “She rescues him right back” or “I want the fairytale”
How to mix and match
You’ll have romance for days when you combine soft pink and red together — and why shouldn’t it be Valentine’s Day every day of the year?. Soft pink with green can also give you a special refreshing summer-y watermelon-y feel. There’s even something fun and playful about soft pink mixed with orange. But we’re especially obsessed with soft pink right on top of any number of neutral shades. It doesn’t get more delightful than that, people.
Soft pink is a Yellowpop go-to — and whatever soft pink neon you choose, something tells us you’ll be sitting pretty.
