When it comes to home decor, it’s common for homeowners to think that pink is a colour they should stay away from. After all, pink paint, furnishings, or decor just looks too girly or gaudy, right? Wrong! Pink can be a wonderful color for interior design when used the right way. Read this special edition of Pinterest Picks of the Day to learn how.
As we all know, pink is the official colour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we’ve chosen some pins that show just how powerful pink can be inside the home.
In the room pictured above, the decorator kept pink contained to just the textiles: the billowy curtains and upholstery of the chair. This is an excellent strategy when you’re experimenting with any colour, since textiles can be switched out easily. The muted, dusty pinks shown here give just enough warmth and femininity to the room without being overbearing.
Pink may be sweet, but when it’s grounded with enough neutrals, it can work as a complementary backdrop of refreshing color. A bubblegum pink room can be made more interesting by retro wooden floors and furniture, as well as a grungy charcoal artwork.
Believe it or not, pink can be made masculine. When a subtle hue is balanced with bold dark furniture and rugged textures like wood, the result is cozy and understated. In such an arrangement, the light pink actually works as a warm neutral.
