blushing…

Pink is and has always been the color I’m somehow drawn to. Here, a scrapbook of eclectic use of the color pink in interior decorating. If there’s too much pink, it’s way too much like a child’s room and very un-chic. When used appropriately, the look is florid rather than saccharine; and we just love it.

The best advice when decorating with pink is keep it simple. Use it as an accent, and stick with the same color family. Don’t mix fuchsia and real baby pink and expect it to carry a grown-up space. Also, try to keep everything else more mature and refined. Dark and lacquered woods add major drama, and nothing adds glamour like gold gilding…or paint.

  1. Beautiful pictures. As you said, pink should be used as an accent or defining colour only. I hate seeing rooms that look too overdone or childish.
