If you happened to be walking near the Empire State Building in New York City this month, you probably saw the iconic tower suddenly turn pink. This was the work of Estée Lauder’s Breast Cancer Awareness campaign which has been illuminating landmarks worldwide since 2000.

As we know, fashion and home decor walk together and this month, the color of the moment is pink. Pink is not just for girls anymore. Despite its sweet nature, pink can be chic and even masculine. Various shades of pink can work nicely together, flattering one another and also the person wearing them.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, not only this month but every month of the year, add a touch of pink to your home and accessories. You can support the cause with elegance and sophistication. Even the addition of one pink accessory can break up a monotone room. Check out some of DOWNTOWN’s favorite ideas on how to decorate your home in every shade of pink.

And remember, whether you’re eighteen or eighty, the color pink is not just for girls.
