5 Ways to Re-think Pink - A DECORATING TIP
Posted on June 08, 2015 by Kate Moynihan | 0 comments
You can be like my granddaughter – a bit unexpected. She’s pretty in pink but cradling a handful of earthy worms! Take pink out of the little girl’s room and let it grow up.
- Pair the bright, lively color of pink with neutral browns, like the worms. Notice how the tawny chocolate color pales the vivid pink, softening the fuchsia into a subtle maturity.
- Put pink with contemporary. Nothing says “grown-up” like the sleek clean lines of modern design.
- Size matters! Go big with pink! The 14”and 16” tall and chunky candlesticks stand bold and proud. The wide base gives them strength and anchors their no-nonsense presence. Let these powerhouses bully right past pink’s stereotype of petite and precious.
- Take pink to the next level. Mix a cool color (any shade of blue) to contrast the “hot” color of pink. Notice how the “prissy” is out of the pink?
- Add glitz – mix classic metallic copper, gold, and silver. Suddenly the pink is more sophisticated!
Why use pink? It’s a great summer pick-me-up! I hope you enjoy summer's sunny bright season with the delight of pink.
