It’s almost here folks! That’s right, we’re talking about #barbiethemovie (yes we know that hashtags don’t apply here, but that’s besides the point). In honor of the highly anticipated film’s debut, we’re going to talk about how you can inject pink into almost any aspect of your custom furniture pieces (or just into your overall design). Keep reading for more pink content!
Blush may be considered a “muted” color, but it can also stand out given the right circumstance. Using it for your walls can really add character to a space (without being overly bold). It’s a great way to slowly introduce color before committing to something brighter (if that’s the direction you’re heading). Below you can see how one of our clients utilized this color for a fun decorative space

The disco ball really sells it.
Not quite ready for pink walls? Check out how you can incorporate it into your furniture! Amanda Simmons Interiors used a gorgeous blush for their dining room chairs as well as in their credenza and choice of art. By having their cushions upholstered in a fun fabric, they were able to display color throughout the entirety of the space (no wall paint required).

Tired of pastel pinks yet? Us neither! Like in the example above, pops of color in your textiles is a good way of creating cohesion in a room. This is especially good news for those of us who rent our spaces and don’t have the ability to paint. You can still have a pink room without pink paint (Holland Home Finishes did an excellent job as seen below in their nursery design).

Lauren Haskell Designs is never one to shy away from pastels and it’s clear why! These soft pinks add a feminine touch in a very subtle way. Utilizing fresh flowers is also helpful when your tastes change week to week (once it’s time to change them out, you can opt for new colors and shades). These pastels also pair well with gold and white accents (perfect for a breakfast nook or dining area).

Now, sometimes you just need to express yourself through bright colors and there’s just no way around it. Exhibit A below! Hot pink can be scary to some, but that just depends on how you use it. Notice that the designer chose to highlight the ceiling and built ins, but not the walls. This allows the space to feel “grown-up” while still being fun (no one should have to wear sunglasses when walking into a room).

Last (but certainly not least) we have Oyster Creek. Sure, these chairs can read more purple, but the pink is still there! Paired with blonde wood accents, these chairs make for a playful addition to the space (we just know Barbie would have these in her dream house).

Now that you’ve seen just a handful of ways to inject color into a space, it’s time to redecorate! Spruce up those unused rooms with pink textiles or even pink furniture. Your options are endless and you can never have too much pink (at least we don’t think so).
