Every little girl loves the color pink! However, there are several women that never outgrew their love of this color. When you are looking to decorate a room in different shades of pink, there are a few tips that can help you create just the look you want.
It’s Not Just for Girls
One thing to remember is that pink isn’t always considered feminine or “girly.” Depending on the shade, pink can be very beautiful when incorporated into a full decorating scheme. You can create a wonderful, classic look that is quite timeless with antique pinks coupled with soft grays can turn a room into a warm, cozy space.
While there are a few men that love the color, you will normally see a girl’s room decorated in different shades of pink. Little girls especially love the color and there are accessories available in just about every shade. The key is to choose the right complimenting colors.
Pink – Pinker – Pinkest!
Balancing out the shades of pink can be the hardest part of decorating. One of the best places to start is online. You can find color wheels that will let you mix and match shades to determine which ones will best suit your decorating dreams. Some will let you pick one shade and then show you several different coordinating colors that will work best.
You’ll find that the lighter shades of pink work well in softer surroundings, such as in a formal dining room, while the deeper pinks look great in bathrooms. Bedrooms can take on any shade as long as it’s accessorized properly, such as through bright, brilliant neon shades. Of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so you may find that the “glow-in-the-dark” shade of pink is just what you wanted in the living room!
Accessorizing Your Pink Room
You’ve got to start somewhere, so how about the floor? You can find several different styles of pink rugs, but gray or black rugs can also add a nice contrast. Choose a nice set of beige wicker furniture and bamboo rugs are a great accent choice.
Pillows are the easiest accessories to find and a nice variation is to pair solids and stripes. Don’t forget the pink curtains, bedding sets, and lighting fixtures, either. What you cannot find in the shade you want, paint it when possible. Need to match a color specifically? Take a trip to your hardware store to match the paint. Most are able to use a special machine to create an identical color.
A Couple of Final Thoughts
Pinks are often overlooked in the decorating process, but it can work beautifully in almost any room. The internet is a great way to shop for different accessories in your newly decorated room, but don’t overlook the importance of thrift stores and garage sales! These can provide unique and interesting additions to your home and at an affordable price. At the end of the day, if you like the results, it’s all that matters!
