Decorating with the color pink is my passion.

How to decorate with the color pink
I used to be scared adding a bold color to a room. I thought the best way of decorating is when you stay within one color, mainly white, maybe adding a little beige or brown here and there.
Everybody I knew decorated their houses with the same colors and it felt pretty safe. Nothing could go wrong.
Until I changed my job and all of a sudden I had a lot to do with colors and patterns, boho style and modern interior. And my taste for colors changed.
My first attempt to incorporate a color to my apartment was a teal colored wall to wall carpet. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, until I saw it. I absolutely loved it.
My furniture was mainly white and it looked stunning, so fresh and clean.
I started adding yellow and blue little by little and the whole atmosphere of the room changed.
What I am trying to say is, start experimenting. Start with a colorful rug, or a couple of colorful pillows, a colorful artwork, a bouquet of flowers.
There are so many ways to start small and slowly getting the feeling to add more color to a room.
Pink can be a little tricky, but with a little direction, pink decor can turn out chic instead of tacky and girly.
Here are some easy steps how to decorate with the color pink:
Go and get a pink statement couch if the rest of your furniture is neutral! I had mine for over 10 years now and I am still in love with it.
Add different pink pillows
If you aren’t ready for a big pink centerpiece, use pink accent pillows. Pink pillows add a fresh feel to a gray sofa – instantly.
Cool Pink Art Work
Pink in Art Work – Make a cool piece of pink art work the focal point of your room.
If the rest of your furniture and wall color is neutral, this one piece can really make an impact and draw the attention to it.
Pink Flower Bouquets
Flower bouquets always look amazing in a neutral room.
Flowers create an instant happy feeling, especially if you chose a colorful bouquet in a pretty vase.
Different Pink Accessories
There are so many funky and cool objects you can decorate with – use them on your coffee table, a shelf or on your mantel to create happy vibes in your room.
Pink throws or curtains
If the room is very neutral and you want to add some color this is an easy update. Pink curtains or a pink throw will make this room happy.
A Pink Rug
A rug can change everything in your room. It can make it funky, add warmth to it or makes it colorful.
Get a solid colored rug or a pretty pattern, whatever fits better to the rest of your furniture.
A pink accent wall
Use the right shade of pink and this focal point looks stunning.
Add a deeper hue for a dining room, a very pale pink for a bathroom or bedroom. Or use Wallpaper or Wall Art and create an accent wall like this one.
Adding wallpaper is easier if you are not sure which is the right hue for your room.

Isn’t this wallpaper gorgeous? What an entry to your house if you are lucky and have so much space to display wallpaper.
But also an accent wall in your living room or in your bedroom makes a great focal point with this wallpaper.
Pictures for your pink inspiration
And here are a couple of images I found on Pinterest for your inspiration if you are thinking of adding a little pink to your home:
A pink fridge – retro appliances in pastel shades like mint, green, blue and of course pastel pink create a tropical feeling. Especially when your kitchen is white, a pastel color makes it feel clean and fresh.
Update old furniture like an old chair with a pink fabric. Or paint a side table or a night stand in pink.
There are many ways to experiment with this color.
It refreshes the look of your room. Just start with a little sprinkle here and there – you are going to love it.
Thinking about painting a wall? Maybe a bathroom update? Then check out these hues:
Are you more the neutral person, then start with pastels like a Powder Pink or an Adobe Blush.
If you like bold colors, then dive right into it with a Fuchsia or a Hot Pink.
Have you decided to paint your walls in a fresh and happy pink, get some different color samples and paint them on different walls in your room.
The colors look so different on each side of the room, especially if you don’t have a lot of windows.
Check if you like the hue during daylight and artificial light. Trust me on this.
