Say Yes to Pink in a Girl’s Room
Even a hint of pink can catch one’s eye. Softly delicate like a Magnolia flower or a cluster of apple blossoms. Lightly fragrant and pure. Pinks make us smile and fill us with the same sense of joy as a new baby or a child’s rosy cheeks. Pink is a color we love - it’s fresh and alive.
Too much pink is like eating too much candy. Too sweet! But don’t hesitate to use pink in a nursery or a girl’s room. Embrace its quiet energy and warmth. It’s the quality of the pinks, not quantity that matters. And it’s a matter of your taste and style. Ask yourself what you want for your home.
Here are a few simple guidelines:
1) Find the pink or pinks you love
2) Decide if pinks will be focal points (furniture) or accents (lamps, artwork, walls, bedding) or a combination. In other words, consider the “amounts” of pink.
3) Mix and match pinks with complementary and contrasting colors (blues, greens, browns) until you find the composition, balance and feeling you like.
Using pinks or any color in a room is like being a painter - try a dab here and a dab there rather than throwing the whole bucket on at one time. Keep it simple. Less is often more in a child’s bedroom - and in your home. Create a soothing space with pinks and make sure you have fun!
The balance of pinks with crisp white furniture make this room cheerful, inviting and bright. A few blues and greens give it some contrast and pop.
