Pink and Oh So Pretty!!!

June 21, 2011

I blogged earlier this year that the color pink is Pantone’s color of the year, so I thought I would share some of my favorite pinks in design. When I work on color palettes for my clients,  I always factor in the psychology behind the colors into my designs.  Research shows that pink rooms reduce angry behavior (at least temporarily) and create a sense of contentment.  That is why pink has been used in one of the most hostile environments known to man–the prison!  Can you believe it?  That’s far from the sweet, girly rooms we usually think of when we think of pink.

I’ve found some pinks, from the faintest hues to saturated, bubble-gum styles, for all you pink enthusiasts out there who are as excited as I am about this color!

{I have to start with the Princess of Pink herself, Betsey Johnson.  Have you seen her fabulous NYC penthouse? It is pink, pink and more pink.  Check out more info on the penthouse on Hooked On Houses}

{More of Betsey’s fab pad. I love the rich pinks and glass blocks in the room, as well as the pops of black!}

{Betsey’s bedroom. Mad crazy in pink!!!}

 {Check out Betsey’s living room!!!}

 {I really love this room from marthastewart.com. It is a great color with the gray window sill, white sofa and soft blue table.  I love it!!!}

{Check out how pretty this entry is.  I love the classic and rustic feeling of the space.  See how pretty the soft gray looks with the pale pink walls.  This room and others like it can be seen on marthastewart.com}

{Peachy pink chic, I love it. Benjamin Moore’s ‘Day Lily’ is the featured pink in this photo. There is a lot going on in this room, but for me all the color works well together…as long as you like pastels!}

{This is Benjamin Moore’s ‘Authentic Pink’…I like how it goes against the norm in this historic feeling interior}

{Sherwin Williams’ ‘Demure’ pink is used to create a cool background for all the black and white in this picture. I love the subtle color combo!!!}

{It’s electric pink – wow! This is a little too bright for me in a bedroom, but I can imagine a teenager loving this room, which is painted with BM’s ‘Bermuda Breeze’.  It definitely is pretty in pink.}

{In this subtly pink room, ‘Odessa Pink’ by BM comes off as more neutral than some of the other pinks in this post.  I love it!}

{Glidden’s ‘Pink Tiger’ is a good example of that bubble-gum pink I was talking about. I love the mirrored bed and tailored bedding in this room. What do you think?  Very Hollywood Glam.}

{Benjamin Moore’s ‘Bride to Be’ paint color seen in this room is a light and more mature feeling pink.}

    Denise,
    Great post. I lingered over every image and word. After I finish with my, for me, neutral living room I will be moving on to the dining room and taking it from a typical dark red to a vibrant pink. I’ve been thinking about it and posting about it for a year but your feature today has set a fire under me bum. 🙂
    Thanks. Loved it.
    Pam
