Ideas for a balanced interior décor with pink accents

Pink is a risky color. If used excessively it will make your home look like a Barbie house. It’s why most people avoid this color and even despise it. Nevertheless, when used with measure, pink can be a great accent color that instantly makes your home look fresh, friendly and dynamic. But keep in mind that it’s still a difficult color that is difficult to match with other shades.

Some beautiful color combination using pink include shades of white, grey, black or orange. Other colors could be successfully used but it all depends on a number of other factors as well. Also, not all the rooms would look equally beautiful in pink. The living room could easily adapt to such a bold color as it’s a social area also designed for entertainment. A dynamic décor is always a good idea. You can pink as an accent color for elements such as decorative pillows, lighting fixtures, tugs or artwork.

The bedroom is another room where pink would feel warm and cozy. Pastel shades would be a particularly good idea. You can include for example elements such as pink curtains, bedding, a pink rug or beanbag. Pink furniture is risky and it’s difficult to mix and match with other pieces. But in a white décor it could be a beautiful and bold addition. You can also use pink in other spaces as well, like for the example your home office, the bathroom or the kitchen. The amounts should be small and only used as accent features.{picture sources:1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and 10}.
