Get Your Color On! Pink

Come on, spring! If you’re in the Great Lakes area like myself, you’re also probably chomping at the bit for some spring weather. While we can’t change mother nature’s timing, we can start welcoming spring inside our homes.

Read along to learn ways you can infuse spring into your decor with a color I associate with this season: pink. Check out DIY tutorials, inspiration, and my picks for decorating with this color. From blush to cotton candy to neon, you’re sure to find a way to enhance your space with pink.

Pink tends to be one of those love it or hate it colors. Which really is a shame, because this color can do wonders for a home. Pink conjures up a fresh, new energy, much like green, but can also be calming if done in a light shade. It tends to be confined to feminine spaces such as bedrooms, but it can also be used in modern, unisex rooms.

Check out my picks for using small pops of pink in your home.

Where to buy: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20

A simple way to add some pink into your space is with this DIY hanging basket by Refinery 29. I dig their use of neon pink but you could pick another shade that would better match your room.

If you’re not a huge fan of pink but would like to inject some spring into your decor, buy a bouquet of luscious flowers like roses, carnations, or lilies. Melissa from Style Me Pretty Living shows you how to create 3 easy floral arrangements with peonies. These arrangements are classically chic, so they will fit into any decor style.

Fabric is my favorite way to infuse a room with color. Check out these ombre dip dyed curtains from Natasha at Little Pink Monster. These are a fabulous way to use pink, as you can vary the brightness and hue to your liking.

If you’re a true fan of pink and want to add more pop to your room with this color, consider painting an interior door. Meredith and Gwyneth, the New Yorkie shows you how she gave her entry a super stylish makeover by painting her door a lovely shade of rose.

Revamping furniture with paint is another budget-friendly method of bringing pink into a room. You can use a soft, petal pink like Julia from Cuckoo 4 Design did with her dresser in this chic girls’ bedroom

…or use a peppy hot pink like Reshma at Weekend Tweaks did with her dresser makeover. I love her juxtaposition of this color with the traditional decor.

A great way to decorate a space with lots of color is to use multiple accessories and items in various shades of that color. Check out my perfectly pink balcony makeover from last year. To match the brick exterior of my building, I used warm shades of pink.

If you’re a huge lover of pink, consider painting your kitchen cabinets in your fave color. When using a deep, jewel shade of pink like this kitchen, tropical decor is very suitable.

Another big impact you can give a space with color is to paint the walls. Check out this home office makeover Haeley from Design Improvised. I love the shade she chose for the walls—it’s not too soft and not too bright and overwhelming for a workspace.

This living room makeover by Capturing Joy with Kristen Duke has just the right amount of fuchsia: an accent wall. Also, take note of how well the navy blue plays with this pink. It’s an unexpected color combination, but it works so well.

You’ve seen above how wonderful gold and pink are together, but silver also plays nicely with pink. The combination of pink and metal decor is striking.

Pink also does well when paired with purple. Check out the different shades of both colors used: magenta, lilac, orchid, etc.

Decorating with pink and wood tones or brown is also a winning approach. The warmth of the wood provides a nice balance to the pink walls and furniture.

Another great combination is pink and yellow. This space is mostly brick and yellow, but the pink plays a lovely supporting role.

Have you started decorating your homes for spring? What does pink do for you? Have you decorated with pink?

    I love pink but it’s a very strong color so it can overwhelm a room pretty fast. I love that in all these examples the color brings just the right amount of spunk without being too overwhelming! Thank you so much for sharing this at Frugal Crafty Home Blog Hop!
