It’s no secret that pink can be polarizing. Historically reserved for nurseries, the rose has traditionally been cataloged as feminine and sweet. Nowadays, however, designers are illustrating that it is possible to rethink pink and take it in sophisticated, even rebellious, new ways. Today’s top designers especially like to use pink in bedrooms. Whether it’s a coastal-inspired retreat bathed in a soft undertone of desert rose or an edgy hideaway decked out in an electric shade of raspberry, the designers are shamelessly adding pink to the conversation. from the room.
Changing the way pink bedrooms are viewed is a matter of balance. To temper overtly cloying connotations, designers like to turn to dark and complementary colors. Shades of blue and green – more intense colors that reside at the opposite end of the color spectrum – are often used for this task, as are shades of gray and black. Another alternative is to go for a brighter pink, like fuchsia for a bedroom. With its rock-n-roll overtones, high potency shades of pink are perfect for shattering pink’s reputation as a saccharin. Still, other designers are inclined to introduce an element of irreverence to curb the rose-girl joy. Whether it’s a set of traditional antiques or a fleet of postmodern furniture with playground silhouettes, pairing pink with an element of the unexpected is a sure way to set it free.
