Pink is a great color to use in home decor because it can help create a calm and soothing environment. So why is it that we rarely see people decorate their home with pink? Sure, a person might use a nice flower arrangement, but rarely do you see pink furniture or décor unless it is in the bedroom. The color has gotten a bad rap in interior design and is often thought as being too girly or immature. But you can prove everyone wrong and show just how stylish pink can be with these various items.

Curtains or rugs

When paired with a neutral wall color, a pink curtain, rug, or combination of both, can have a dramatic effect. The stark, contrasting colors will give your space a sharp appearance that in no way resembles a five-year-old girl’s room.

Accent chairs

Pink accent chairs are a great way to add a pop of color in a room that needs an extra touch of pizazz. If you have a kitchen counter or a home bar, you might also consider using pink bar stools, which is a way more fun alternative than the typical brown counter stools.

Wallpaper and paint

Even your walls can be pink! It’s important not to overdo it, however, because even if you love pink, you’ll cringe walking into an all-bright pink room. Try painting or using wallpaper on only one wall. You can also paint just the ceiling and leave the walls white.

Artwork

Got a bare wall that could use a little love? Hang up a picture or piece of art that you really like and has pink as the dominating color. Adding pink with artwork is also a great idea if you like to change up your interior design often and don’t want to be stuck always trying to match pink furniture.

If you love pink, then let it show! Decorating with pink will give your space a unique appeal that others will soon want in their own home.
