12 Colors to Incorporate When Decorating With Pink

Think pink! No, really, go ahead and incorporate the color into your home. Pink isn't just for nurseries or ultra-feminine spaces, we promise. It actually pairs extremely well with a number of other hues, meaning you can easily add a pop of the cheerful color to an existing room without things looking too chaotic. The 12 spaces below are proof that pink is more than welcome in the living room and bedroom in addition to kids' rooms, so don't be shy about embracing it once and for all.

    If you're going to log a significant number of hours in your home office, you might as well decorate the space using hues that will make you happy and give you a peppy boost all day long. Blogger Sam Taylor-Crooks did just that when transforming a spare room into a workspace of her own. She coated part of the wall in a light pink and then painted a trendy yellow arch behind her desk area. Across the room, a yellow duvet cover pops against the remainder of the pink wall.

    Blogger Sydne Summer added brass accents aplenty to her stylish living room. Since a pink sofa is such a showstopper on its own, it's wise to follow Summer's lead when decorating around this type of piece. Keeping other furniture more simple (Summer opted for white and lucite pieces) will allow your statement piece to take center stage.

    In blogger Jen Thorne's bedroom, which was already outfitted with a gray rug, pink bedding and a matching accent wall add some warmth. By incorporating a gray headboard and silver accents into the space, the room looks cohesive yet much more vibrant than it would have been without these feminine touches.

    Pink and navy is another classic combo, which blogger Annette Vartanian incorporated into her bedroom by way of a bold accent wall. Vartanian loves the boho chic look, but if that's not your aesthetic, note that pink and navy can be styled in a number of fashions, whether you prefer decor that's traditional, eclectic, or something else entirely.

    Blogger McKenna Bleu also incorporated a pink sofa into her home—and her setup demonstrates that jute accents are a major yes when styling around such a piece. A classic jute rug and woven baskets may not initially seem like they would complement hot pink, but by opting for designs that also feature notes of white, Bleu nailed the look.

    Pinks and greens are frequently paired together during the decorating process, but no two color combos are ever quite the same. In blogger Maria's dreamy bedroom, avocado green paint coats a portion of the walls that aren't covered in nature-inspired wallpaper (which is—you guessed it—also pink and green).

    Blogger Heather Thibodeau designed a flowery bedroom for her daughter comprised of pink and turquoise accents. Thibodeau's setup is proof that one doesn't need to veer away from white walls in order to make a space look nice and vibrant; thoughtful touches such as framed wallpaper and a ceiling that wows will do the trick.
