Since we are an interior design community made up primarily of women, it is only natural that we focus on the color of October. A month of promoting Breast Cancer Awareness. Yes, we are Thinking Pink.
Adding pink or a variation of pink to your décor will not only brighten the space, but it will also add meaning as it reminds you of this important life-saving cause. Just for this month, try a new pink pillow — you may like it!
A ribbon of pink can be added to any room. It could be as simple as adding a throw or decorative pillow as shown above in this living room.
Dining spaces are another area to make a pink statement. Just a small touch of pink in the artwork and flowers (above) add a feminine touch.
The accessory on the dresser above says it all: Be Bold. A little girl’s bedroom can be an obvious place to bring in the pink. This client’s daughter wanted pink and blue to represent her colorful style. The custom paint treatment of hot pink on the wall with bold blue geometric lines helps break up the narrow space. The white bedding serves as a good foundation for the pink bolster and patterned pink and blue pillows.
Yes, pink can also work in a more formal space. In the room above, the pops of pink provide a terrific accent to the prominent black-and-white design. The pink ottomans with a Greek key design created by gold nail heads are stunning. The oversized black sectional is the perfect backdrop for pink pillows. Artwork by the client’s favorite artist pulls it all together and winks at you with a touch of pink.
How about a pink backsplash? Or brightening up a home office with pink in the window treatment and chair? And don’t forget the bathroom.
