Pink is one particular of our favorite colors right now, and we’ve used almost every shade of it in our most recent Spring catalog. It can be a polarizing color although since it’s so unabashedly feminine and usually conjures photos of your pre-teen bedroom or nursery. But we actually consider the softness of pink makes it the perfect foil for the much more clean, masculine shapes we’re seeing in furnishings trends.
Our Alayna Rug, employed in the living area above, has a touch of pink in it, so we played up that accent with a magenta pillow and hot pink welt on our Hayes Ottoman. The pink touches complement the orange in the rug and add small bursts of color to a mostly neutral area. Since there are only a handful of pink accents and they’re paired with orange, we feel this is a space almost anyone can get on board with.
Let’s talk about blush. It complements so several other colors, like coral, blues, greens, and most neutrals. We adore using this shade due to the fact it’s quiet and unexpected. Even though it is soft and feminine, it doesn’t feel overly girly which indicates it functions for a grown up space.
A light and airy blush pink floral fabric (our Louise Blush) is the best ying to the dark yang of the other pieces in this area, like a charcoal gray quilt and patterned rug. We frequently talk about how balance is important to hold in thoughts when you’re decorating your space, and the mixture of pink and charcoal in this area captures that thought completely.
There’s a decorating rule that says, you require to use a colour three times to establish it in the room. Just 3 pillows and some fresh flowers give this entire bedroom a romantic good quality that balances the dark bed and drapery.
Magenta is another excellent decision if you want to bring in pink with out creating a super girly space. We took the color palette from our Birdsong Art which has each pink and greens in it. Just a couple of accessories, some flowers, and a pillow in Garrison Magenta complement this laid-back, beachy living space.
We love pairing soft pink with our feisty Serengeti print. Every room wants something unexpected, and a pair of blush pink slipper chairs bring that element of surprise to this living space.
Bear in mind how we described that pink pairs beautifully with nearly every single neutral? Here’s proof of that. It operates with warm beige, cool grays, chocolate browns, and even blacks. The foundation of this room is simple, streamlined, and neutral, but two armchairs in Suzanne Kasler’s blush linen fit in flawlessly.
An additional excellent way to bring pink into your space with no going overboard? Use a blush pink wall color like Benjamin Moore’s Sugarcane (above). If you have a lot of black pieces, counteract them with this cheery hue.
We love the feminine, romantic top quality blush brings to this living area, specifically when paired with a caramel velvet couch and two brown leather chairs.
Suzanne Kasler’s Peony Linen operates beautifully with sandy neutrals. We really like this bedroom that has a laid-back beachy vibe and just a few accents of that vibrant pink!
We hope these examples will empower you to use pink in your spaces, without the be concerned of going all-out Elle Woods.
