Pink is a great color. It is so unusual and fresh.
This photo was the best example that I could find to show a room that used pink on many items, without going overboard. The wall color makes all the difference, so that there is something besides pink to look at. Soft shades of pink which are my favorite look nice with many different colors. In the dining room with the pink wall pictured above please notice that the table and chairs aren't pink, and the furniture is not ornate. This designer managed to use pink in her own way, without relying on what we have all seen a thousand times before.
Pink is under-utilized in home decor because of negative connotations that stem from the way this beautiful color is most often used. If you find a photo of an interior space where pink has been used creatively, please leave a comment with a link.
