Color Spotlight: Think Pink

Color Spotlight: Think Pink


If you've ever picked up a shelter magazine, then you know that painting a room is the first step in any interior makeover. The Color Spotlight series will provide inspirational images, paint swatches, and palates to help anyone in a color conundrum select the perfect new hue for their space.

Next up in the series...pink! Most of you either love it or hate it, but you can't deny that pink interiors can be very eye-catching. Pink is bright, it's light, it's fun, and it works surprisingly well in every room of the house. The last Color Spotlight was accompanied by Mythic paint swatches, but I knew exactly where to look for shades of this bubblegum hue: Disney Paints! Now, without further ado, let's check out some seriously fab spaces that are thinking pink...

If you're going to go pink, why not have fun with it? This tiny bathroom has been transformed into a charming circus tent, thanks to some soft pink stripes. Your eye is drawn upward toward the ceiling, which appears to peak into the center of the room, where a vintage chandelier adds to the sweetness of the space. Little pink pops can even be found on the glass knobs, as well as in the custom shower curtain. I can imagine any little girl would feel like a princess in this bathroom, climbing on a stool to try on mom's lipstick in the mirror...

The pink in this living area leans more toward the salmon side of the spectrum. This actually happens to be one of my favorite images...I love the warm pink above the chair rail and the grey below. The wide-planked ashy floors bring both hues together and the simply upholstered settee provides a nice neutral above which to hang framed leaves and eggs. Decorating with natural elements continues on the antique shelving unit; coral and horns sit amongst vintage bowls, all creating a gorgeous vignette.

What do you see in this photo? I see a HOT POCKET! Okay...I see a hot pink pocket door. Ahhh...sorry. But, all lame attempts at humor aside, this is a seriously stunning dining room. And if you're as interior-obsessed as I am, then you'll recognize this image from an IKEA catalog! Everything in this room can be found at the Swedish furniture mecca, which means it's budget-friendly (yay!). The overall palate is mostly neutral with white, silver, and blonde wicker, and then BAM! The bright door introduces a little one-two punch and elevates what would have been a dull dining room into a delightful space to host dinner parties.

What a way to make an entrance!! Any bad day would instantly melt away the minute you stepped into this bubblegum rainbow of a hallway. I absolutely love when original siding is used on the inside and here the homeowners have taken a whimsical approach to their palate to create openness and movement in a usually straightforward space. By painting the bottom section in the darkest hue, the room stays grounded...If the dark pink were up top, the small space would feel low-ceilinged and heavy. I'd love to see this each time I walked in the door, wouldn't you?

Hot pink is so in right now-- are you brave enough to use it in your home's decor? If you're already thinkin' pink, I would love to know how!

I'm not a fan of pink (too PAris Hitlon for me...) but i must say i like the second pic with the couch. This one suis well with the furnitures.
LOVE. I am the queen of pink. My kitchen and dining room are pink with brown. To quote Eloise (and her creator, Kay Thomson), Think Pink!
I am not fond of pink, but when I do use it it is mostly a very emotional color. Hot pink is bold and energetic, pale pink is innocent, dark pink is very sexy, and dusty pink is lonely or nostalgic.
you know i have to agree with eva on this. i am not fond of pink, but i LOVE that second picture with the couch. that color scheme is really nice.
