Decorating With Pink

ComplementarySplit ComplementaryAnalogous


This sophisticated and soothing scheme lends itself well to modern spaces. It uses tints and shades of one color, staying within the same column on the color wheel. A monochromatic scheme for pink might feature a range of tones from soft petal pink to bold fuchsia.

Ok, so pink can be sophisticated and serious (you'll see that later), but there's no denying that it's absolutely perfect for a little girl's room. An all-pink color palette might be overwhelming in a living room or dining area, but in a child's room it adds a sense of magic and charm.

If your little girl loves this bedroom, it's super simple to recreate yourself. Start by painting her walls a lighter pink, like bubblegum, which is closer to the inner tier of the color wheel. Then, move out a tier or two towards a darker pink, like fuchsia. This color can be painted behind her bed in panels, creating a focal point and a really fun look.

Now that you've gone with doses of deeper pink, sprinkle paler pinks throughout her room in the form of bedding and an area rug. Playing with the different tones of pink helps to add interest and character. You can even use a dresser and nightstand with pink panels that tie in with her room's color scheme.

With so much pink in the room, you'll want to introduce white furniture and even a metal bed as a nice break for the eyes. These are also great investment pieces that will grow with her as her taste matures.
