While pink has the effect of instantly putting a smile on your face, it also is a wary color to be used in decorating. Pink can often have a somewhat juvenile result leaving any use of the color left to a little girl’s room or in last week’s floral arrangement. However, whenever I see pink used by expert decorators it leaves a room with a fresh and feminine feel. Pink can be used to soften a space or give it a colorful edge. The wonderful thing about pink is that it has the ability to be daring and unexpected when employed in interiors.
Whether you woke up on the right side of the bed or want to go back to bed, starting your Tuesday with an infusion of perfectly pink spaces may be just what the alarm clock ordered!
I have recently stumbled upon these amazing brushstroke lamps by Jana of BEK Design. She can custom make any color of your choice. Gegan (my grandmother) is looking for a pair of “Ming Yellow” lamps. Any suggestions??
I love the contrasting colors of pink that are used in the drapes and lamp. It softly pops against the beautiful chinoiserie wallpaper. Photo source: Pinterest

Apparently this is purple, but I don’t care. This beautiful skirted table in the French home of Janet de Botton is so perfectly placed. I want! Photo source: Vogue Living: Houses, Gardens, People
I’ll never forget falling in love with this pink chinoiserie wallpaper in the smalls spaces, big design issue of House Beautiful a few years ago. People can scare of print in smaller scaled rooms, but don’t! I think small spaces make the biggest impact with pattern.

A personal favorite in this pink room designed Elaine Griffin. The artwork really makes a statement against the french rose pink walls.

Pink and Green is always a cheerful pair. This entry is no exception.
A classic pink dining area. I love the robins-egg shades on the chandelier. An understated contrast.
