When it comes to choosing a paint color for your home, pink might seem like a girly choice. But while it can certainly make a room feel more feminine, the pretty hue can also have a surprising impact. From bubblegums that pop to blush tones that feel more refined, adding a splash of pink can instantly change a room’s mood, adding a touch of sophistication or a streak of drama, depending on your shade. The key is to find the perfect pink that best suits your design style.
Wanna paint an entire room pink? Why not go for a much softer hue. A pastel pink can look cheerful and bright without overpowering the space–in fact, it can make it look larger. A paler pink can also create a light and airy effect in the living room.
For a colorful alternative to neutrals, opt for more muted blush tones. Beigy-pinks and peaches are more understated and elegant-looking than a brighter, powder pink. Plus, their warm undertones can make a room feel more inviting.
Try shocking shades of pink or fuchsia to make a room pop. The bold colors are playful and look extra glamorous when used to paint a single wall. They are better used as an accent than an all-over color so balance them out with neutral accents e.g pair corals with darker browns for a warm & rich room. For a wow color combination, try contrasting bright magenta with a softer, off-white.
Here are a few ideas i have gathered from martha stewart, houzz and elle.
If you’re craving big and bright, go ahead and paint your walls magenta, but make sure the rest of the room is neutral (like the cream couch and dark ottoman) and complementary (like the green bookshelves) to avoid going over the top.
