Color of the Month : PASTEL PINK

With breast cancer awareness month being October, we’re picking our fave interiors that feature a soft sheen of pink. We chose tones that convey pink as a sophisticated and warm color. Combined with other pastels it can be soft and feminine, combined with grays and neutrals, it can be classy and chic.

WALLS

To avoid overdoing it and making a room like like a nursery, think about only painting part of the wall, use a colorblock process as seen here. And compliment it with blacks and other sophisticated neutrals.

FURNITURE + ACCENTS

Combined with other pastels, pink can create a glamorous and calming effect. We love the idea of a pouf in such an unconventional color.

Pink furniture can be used beyond Barbie’s dream house. The use of a pink tufted sofa in this image shows just how versatile the color can be. Add a washed pink rug to the picture against whitewashed walls and the overall room has a classic look.

TABLETOP

Pink dishes combined with sleek neutrals give a more mature tea party look. Consider a textured table throw in a blush shade to compliment a floral centerpiece.

BEDROOM

Layering Pink linen with shades of taupe, gray and ivory keeps things soft, while veering away from being overly feminine.  We also love a good linen duvet from Bella Notte!
