Good morning, darlings! This time of year, the fundamental theme in many of our lives is change. We seek to change our appearance, our habits, our goals and our environment. We seek to think outside the box, and for many that box is a bland builder's beige. So if you're the type more likely to hit the paint store than the gym come the new year, I've got a wonderful guest post to share with you with lots of (perhaps unlikely) inspiration. Enjoy!
Hi, I’m Joanna, a guest blogger for Design Shuffle, an online portfolio site for interior designers and design enthusiasts. I am fortunate enough to spend my days gathering images of the most beautiful interior designs from around the web. I then get to share them on blogs such as this one. Thanks to Idle Fascination for letting me share with you today.
Pink is one of those colors many women embrace and many men feel alienated by. In interiors, those opposing perspectives can be merged into a happy collaboration by using a light touch to keep the pink hues as gender-neutral as possible. To achieve this, darker furnishings can be included with pink for a more masculine feel or the color can be added in tiny touches such as throw pillows. Take a look at some of the pink-infused rooms we found and get inspired. Would you and your significant other feel comfortable in these spaces?
A traditional living room looks stately without seeming fussy by using the lightest pink on furnishings and at the bookshelves.
The soft pink walls and light gray and white flooring of this living room balance the bold furnishings beautifully.
Dark chocolate and black furnishings give a masculine feel to this pink and white living room. A sisal rug brings a casual touch to the space.
A single throw and several small floral arrangements give this sunroom just the right amount of pink.
A very masculine space gets a feminine touch from a few pink throw pillows. Doesn't this room inspire lots of living room ideas?
A blue Chinoiserie room gets a blast of pink from its dining chairs. It would be nice if the room had another bit of pink somewhere in the room to anchor the color.
A statement chair introduces pink into a bright white room. Sometimes just one touch of a vibrant color such as this is all the room needs.
In this bedroom design, dark furnishings, art and lighting contrast with the pink walls nicely. Surely a man would feel comfortable in this space. Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8
