This pink and black kitchen is probably one of of the most vibrant examples of pink. If that’s a bit much for you, check out these 21 ways Better Homes and Garden use pink in decorating.
1. Accent on a Color
This is completely DIY if you want it to be. Pick a color in your neutral zone to emphasize. For instance in this picture, the picture over the mantel brings in a color of pink, raspberry, and orange. The upholstered chair has a raspberry colored slip cover. Tied in with the curtain panels of a similar color palate. Making your own curtain panels is the best if you’re looking for customization and/or a budget friendly project. Using these accent colors gives life to a room that was bland. And all it took was some fabric, paper, paint, and some accents.
2. Strike a Compromise
Sometimes bold colors are intimidating, especially when it comes to home decorating. You might love the way a bold color looks in a room but may be too afraid to try it out in your own. An idea from BHG, is to try a muted version of the color. Love bold magenta? Try a toned down version of it. See how elegant this room looks in a muted down magenta?
3. Statement Piece
Simple home furnishing deserve that extra emphasis. By adding an accent piece to a room like this love seat, it makes the couch pop, but also helps compliment everything else around it. Small accents like the gold in the lining of the chair match the yellow accents, which tie everything together.
4. Beautifully Sophisticated
Pastel pink isn’t just for little ladies anymore. This color, when incorporated into a room correctly can be flirty, feminine and sophisticated. This is a gorgeous kitchen that’s warm and modern. The accent rug adds a nice contemporary touch.
In addition to creating a coastal vibe, a collection of shells suggested the color palette of shell pink, sandy taupe, and coral for this stunning living room. A neutral color base full of rich creams, ivories, and taupes is punctuated with bright pops of pink like the inside of a conch shell. The coordinated fabrics, accents, and artwork carry the shell-pink theme around the room.
