10 Modern Pink Rooms--A Color Love Story
It used to be that pink was the color that was relegated to little girls’ rooms or mid-century bathrooms (okay, maybe the eighties too during the “Dusty Rose” craze). But big swaths of pink in the living room, dining room, kitchen? No way!
That’s all changed folks. Pink made a comeback hard a couple years ago and it’s still a strong player in the interior design world. Why? Because it can throw down with any challenger: leather, rustic woods, even metallics. In the top image (above), Sherwin Williams “Romance” is the perfect backdrop to the soft beigy tones of the flooring, carpet, and upholstery of this sitting room (via Sherwin Williams).
You’re not thinking cotton candy pink or baby pink anymore are you? I love how this designer used this modern shade of pink to offset rich natural and metallic ingredients on the mantel. The brass light fixture also elevates the space to a more contemporary level (via Design Soda Ruthie).

How about half & half? Moulding for that traditional estate vibe, mixed with a friendly, welcoming soft pink evocative of dawn’s first blush. It’s like the color is telling everyone, “I’m not really snobby at all. Come have a drink!” (That bar cart!) (via Jesper Florbrant Photography)
Pink also makes sophisticated architectural moldings and trim pop. That army green on the ceiling is GENIUS. (via tumblr)

But what if pink wasn’t on the walls? How about another love match between dark green and pink, the latter giving this room a visual punch as a rug. (via Nordic Knots)
