When thinking about pink interiors, one’s immediate association is with a little girl’s room and of course with every doll’s house on the market. But there is a grown-up way to use pink color in interior design that is not blatantly feminine but rather soft, sophisticated and full of style. Powder pink, or any unsaturated shade of the color with dusty hue will yield a fresh and elegant result whether through an accent or a backdrop or even when taking on the center stage.
With a visible yet not overwhelming contrast, pink is compelling as an accent to a generally white room like the one featuring white Vendome glass table and Paris sideboard by Tonin Casa that are contrasted by pale pink leather upholstered Vivienne dining chairs. On the other hand, equal amount of pink and blue makes for a striking and highly noticeable combination that’s often used on furniture and accents as shown in Luca Papini’s Liber Showcase collection for Tonelli. Emanating elegance and tranquility, the subtle nature of pink makes its presence sinuous with almost any color, from grey hues like the accent pillows on the Charcoal colored Lars sofa by Giuseppe Vigano for Bonaldo, to a single cabinet in Presotto’s I-modulART composition that is by and large graphite and charcoal brown, pink proves as a subtle and sensible element in modern decor that departs from its childish relatives.
