As seen in our last post, vibrant color can change the look of an entire space. One color often deemed too “girly,” is pink. While pink is associated with femininity, it’s perfect for summer and the right patterns, textures, and accessories can balance the hue. Take pink from a little girl’s room to the living room in a way that is grown-up and sophisticated, but fun. Do you dare to go pink?
The vintage, rich pink rug serves as a focal point against white furniture and walls and imbues the eclectic space with a shot of glamor. The dark floors and black coffee table contrast perfectly.
Designer Miles Redd used pink to create a delicate touch, yet balances it with a dark, red tufted couch and metallic frames.
Light pink walls, once popular in historical homes, add a jolt to this living room. Black and gold accents prevent the color from appearing too candy coated. Traditional furniture appears aristocratic against the pink.
Add depth and lessen the frill-factor of a pink sofa with bold prints. These fabrics, from Stout Brothers’ new Marcus Williams’ division, tone down the rose shade and introduce a contemporary feel through geometric and Scandinavian-inspired textiles.
Muted pink walls can act as a neutral in an eclectic home. The color works perfectly with the classic elements, antiques, and more masculine wood floors. While some may think black is harsh against soft colors, the black frames actually bring elegance into the space.
Use hot pink for an unexpected twist. The charcoal walls aren’t depressing when a hot pink coffee table is thrown into the mix.
Have you used pink in interior design? How do you keep it from calling Barbie to my mind?
