6 Sophisticated Ways to Decorate with Pink Lavender
Dress Up a Dining Room
If you think pink walls are for girls’ rooms only, this Palm Beach pad will make you reconsider. To use pink in a space made for entertaining (like a dining room), the key here is to choose a shade that’s vivid rather than babyish, and to fill the room with sophisticated—yet slightly edgy—pieces, such as the mirrored console and Slim Aarons photograph. Loads of white and natural accents keep the whole palette from feeling overwhelming.
Go Monochromatic in a Bedroom
If you’re a fan of pink—and especially if you live in a place where it happens to be abundant—why not go all out? In this Bahamas bedroom, the shades of pink were inspired by the island’s foliage and masonry. Mixing and matching patterns and color variations, like rose and coral, adds interest and depth, while a woven rug and pops of white add a light, airy feel to the room.
Style Your Kitchen With Sweet Appliances
Retro-inspired appliances are all the rage right now and available in both brights and pastels (and custom colors, too!). While plenty of people are drawn to shades like teal and red, we love the idea of bringing a sweet surprise of Pink Lavender to the kitchen. Paired with soft whites and charming farmhouse-style details, the hue feels romantic and welcoming.
Add a Pop of Pattern To a Cozy Reading Nook
The curved lines of this midcentury bamboo étagère make the space feel fresh and unique, but what really takes it up a notch is the mod lotus-patterned wallpaper behind it. The graphic find sets the tone and the palette for the space, which features vintage books, accessories, and a shag rug that all mirror the pink hues found in the wallpaper.
Find the Perfect Pairing on a Porch
When searching for color inspiration for an outdoor space (or even an indoor space), one doesn’t need to look very far. Palettes found in nature are always winning combos, which makes sunset-inspired pinks and virtually any shade of green fail-proof. We love the minty shade designer Amanda Lindroth splashed on the shutters and table base here and paired with bright pink cushions on the outdoor seating.
Bring Surprise Pops to a Sitting Room
While some may have opted to let the scene-stealing pink walls in this Palm Beach living room shine brighter with nothing-but-neutral accents, designer Mary McGee had another idea. “Introducing an out-of-the-bounds color like purple is what makes this room really great,” says McGee, referring to the ikat and tie-dyed throw pillows that adorn the pink slipper chairs.
