Pink is the IT colour at the moment – it is not just for little girls. Pink is sophisticated, cheery and even sexy. Pink is a feel good colour. Read my decorating tips on how to get the hue right – whether you are eight or eighty eight.
Grown up ways to decorate with pink:
Use pink as a surprise! Adding pink in a small space, like on the walls in an entrance foyer or on the walls behind book shelves, makes a statement without too much investment. You can go intense in a space where you don’t spend that much time; it’s a “Wow!” moment that says I am brave, I am bold.
As an accent, the colour pink is an attention grabber. It can be strong, authoritative, and complex. Teamed with black and white, or dark grey it is stunning.
Pink is diverse. Pale pink can be calming to the senses while a bolder shade can be energising. Pink creates energy and adds a fun funky element to any room – particularly when used in an unexpected and random way.
Think – one pink cushion nestled amongst other colours – the piping or trim on a cushion, pelmet or chair.
Pink is a wonderful backdrop for contrasting colour. Mixed with white, turquoise, yellow, green and neutrals, it makes for a fresh and stylish décor.
Pink hues match well not only with neutrals and brights but also with complementary tones. For example, fuchsia and baby pink. Reds, purples and greys add colour diversity to pink colour schemes.
he paler and brighter hues can be used in pure white and more colourful interiors in throw pillows, rugs, furniture items and glassware. White interiors can be brightened up with splashes of bright pink here and there. Multicolour interiors that have blues, purples and greens can also withstand pink accents.
Pink is one of those colours that people shy away from sometimes, because they don’t want a room to appear too girly. But there are ways of using pink that really bring warmth and subtlety to a bedroom for a couple—it doesn’t have to be just for a girl’s bedroom. Pink looks beautiful with chocolate browns, greys, and woods.
Pinks work well with neutrals especially white that accentuates the bright pinks. Dark tones can be brightened up with pinks in mix with other bright colours like yellow, green, orange and red. Pink and cream, pale green or grey can make a great colour scheme both calm and stylish.
