SOFT COASTAL BEDROOMS: UTILIZING PINK AS A NEUTRAL
Pink - it doesn't have to be a statement color, or overwhelming. In fact the right pink can be used like a neutral, a color that really can seamlessly unify all aspects of a space.
Charleston based Interior Designer Emily McAden uses pink in the little girl's room below as the wall color, and throughout the space itself. The muted pink walls are perfect, with the whites of the curtains and bedding layering the space. Including pops of color with different pink tones in the art and pillow, Emily shows us that pink can be beautiful and delicate, and not overwhelming at all.
In the second bedroom below, Emily uses pops of pinks in the Serena and Lily bedding to enhance the space. The whites and grays partner well with the pink, keeping this airy and coastal master interesting. A soft pink knit at the foot of the bed provides another peek of the color, making it cozy and inviting and maneuvering ever so slightly away from the all white look we so commonly find.
Pink as a neutral can work in a child's bedroom and a master. In future posts I will show you how you can also use it in your living spaces, without it becoming too feminine.
