We are seeing pink in a whole new light as of late. Shades of pink add a feminine touch to a room, but we love it when it's done in ways not so precious and uber-girly.
The mix of varying shades of pink as well as pieces both modern and traditional hit all the right notes in this dressing area. The soft pink is balanced by the saturation of the bolder pink and magenta.

We can't resist a good pink and green combo, particularly with a modern print to tie it together, rather than the preppy collegiate version of this color combo!

And there is something about a pink that acts as a neutral, like the paint color shown here playing off the varied shades of color in the tile. Pinks with just a hint of color lend themselves to a more neutral feel.

Art is another way to add pink without the commitment of tile or paint. We are captivated by Shelby Monteverde's swans, and this color palette that could work in so many rooms.

An upholstered piece is another way to bring in some pink, like this pretty banquette - we did a similar one for the study in our Merrimac project!

Pink paint colors can be tough - too pink can go bubblegum or Barbie dream house. We love Backdrop Paint's color "Modern Love" for a barely there pink. Here, we used it on the millwork in a bathroom, paired with a sweet but classic floral wall covering. This one goes neutral and works in so many settings.
Another gorgeous pink paint color is Desert Rose from Benjamin Moore. We first saw it on the lacquered ceiling of the Jaipur Room designed by Martyn Lawrence Bullard for the Dallas Kips Bay showhouse.
We used this same color on the laundry room ceiling for our Merrimac project.
Even small details have the ability to completely transform your space. While pink is not for everyone, the range of hues and ways to incorporate it into a room make it much more versatile than one might think!
