Pink is the colour of the moment right now. From catwalk fashion to home soft furnishings and interior décor themes, whether it’s delicate pastel pink tones or shocking lipstick pink, this is an expressive and versatile colour that looks great as the basis for a teen girl bedroom scheme. Add shades of off-white and sage for a vintage vibe or vivid magenta teamed up with midnight black for a punk rocker aesthetic. Create interesting tonal dimension and texture by mixing different shades of pink within the bedroom or opt for something coordinated and funky by mixing up a variety of patterns and style motifs in the same shade.
Faded pastel pinks make the perfect backdrop for a variety of bedroom themes whether that’s vintage Victorian, country cottage moods or something altogether more contemporary. Paired with pale grey-green celadon shades or sage green and vintage white or ivory, this bedroom motif is ideal for a free-spirited nature lover who could spend hours sipping tea whilst gazing out a lofty window onto rolling lawns. Fall in love with an enchanting traditional iron bed design in a glossy ivory finish and select a duvet cover or bed throw and coordinating curtains in toile, chintzy or floral patterns, to continue the cottagey theme throughout the room. Include antique pieces, shabby chic accents and vintage artwork as inspired finishing touches.
It’s difficult not to notice the ultra-bold tones of shocking pink or lipstick pink just about everywhere on the high street this season. As an expressive summery colour it’s more popular than ever as the basis for floral patterns or a stand-alone shade, particularly within the context of bathroom and bedroom design and accessories. Whether you lean towards the look in magenta tones or perhaps a more neon-influenced pink, it is a vivacious colour that adds energy and a sassy feminine vibe to any room scheme, particularly against the contrast of satin black accents or stark white room elements. Paint woodwork and dado rails in a high gloss white as the ideal partner or incorporate stylish black lacquered furniture or a contemporary black metal bed as an inspired counterpoint. Such bold modern furniture selection plays up the trendy modern theme, whilst the inclusion of zebra or leopard animal prints injects a flavour of fun and youthfulness. Include damask elements as an alternative approach should you wish in the form of framed wallpaper samples, wallpaper borders, stencilling on walls or within the bedding and window materials, for an intriguing touch of gothic flair.
Combining pink on pink shades creates tonal depth and throws up the possibility of a variety of motif styles. Go 70s retro with pink on pink polka dots and squares or geometric prints, or feminine toiles or soft damask patterns for a more grown-up flavour. White curtains trimmed in pink sequined or beaded ribbon, accented with appliques gives the room an invitingly relaxed feel, with multi-textured bedding and white cotton pillows, extending the theme atop a focal point satin white traditional metal bedstead with rich brass detailing for a hint of visual glamour.
For a pink room scheme where the patterns do the talking, consider a striped pink and white wallpaper treatment or pink on pink patterns with crisp white mouldings and wood trim. Toile style pink and white curtains, against pinstriped wallpaper and a solid white dado rail, will all bring flair to the décor story without the necessity for an overall theme. The secret here is to mix and match patterns that coordinate and complement each other without overwhelming the visual message.
