Color Fun Friday! Pretty in Pink!

I must be in a pink mood lately. The last color I showcased was coral. I guess I’m seeing it around a lot lately. Pink is often a color we love or hate, it has that appeal. Soft and subtle, it is delicate, peaceful and gentle, but bold and vibrant shocking pink can be emotional and stimulating to your senses.

Interiors can be transformed with the use of pink, but men generally have an aversion to living in a pink space, maybe they feel uncomfortable around emotional colors! Therefore it is most commonly used in girl’s bedrooms and bathrooms. You can read about the use of pink in Feng Shui here.

 

 

Totally diggin’ this space. The mix of the industrial and brick with the pink accents. The chandelier is a nice touch.

This space look like it belongs to a twenty-something that lives in studio in Manhattan. I like how its mainly white with that pop of fuchsia.

This loft space is so cool! Using that vintage soft pink fridge is a great touch!

Who says pink can’t be sophisticated?  Loving this mod home!

You rarely see pink in the kitchen. It seems really modern and fresh.

Nice subtle pink color on the walls sets a nice tone for this space. Feels really soft and inviting.

You’ve seen this painted floor idea before here. It adds a great pop of color and visual interest to the room. I like the contrasting painted yellow door.

Pink and brown have always been a great combo. This bedroom doesn’t feel too feminine at all. I think any man would be okay sleeping in this room. The area rug adds that masculine touch to balance the pink walls out.

Great textures and tones of pink in this room.  I like the mix of the lush velvet and natural fiber area rug.

I just love this space. All the different shades pink with the the lime green desk and accents. Green and pink is another great combo.

Is pink a color for you? Do you think it can be used in a sophisticated manner?

Color Fun Friday! Coral Craze!

coral

Coral is a great color for interiors. It’s a variable color averaging a deep pink or a light shade of red. A little less bold than red or orange, blends great with almost every other color.

 

 

This kitchen has such a cheery effect. The bold walls really stand out. I really love the color with the various tones of woods.

This room would be great for a tween or teenager. Great geometric pattern on the curtains. Fun tones of coral throughout the space. Super cute!

Love how the coral looks with the gray neutrals in this living room. Subtle, with nice pops of coral in the artwork and pillows.

The bold accent wall really highlights the wall as the focal point. The light bluish art panels compliment it perfectly and add a nice balance.

This living keeps the main areas neutral and spice it up with coral accents. It feels sophisticated with a pop ‘o fun.

I love this playful arrangement with the bold wall color and the complimentary colored stripe area rug. What great choices for a foyer/entryway.

Again, this space keeps is light and airy with a neutral base and adds the softer coral hue for a little life.

Really bold colored walls throughout paired with the zebra rug and black accents makes this space tres’ chic. I can see this belonging to an apartment in the Upper East Side of NYC.

Love the mix of the coral with the rattan/wicker. This house fits perfectly in a beach town or city.

Do you like the color coral for your interior space? How about accessories or accents?

Color Fun Friday! True Blue!

blue-image

All colors influence the mood and feelings evoked in an interior space, none more so than the color blue. Using blue in your interior space can produce a calming serene feeling in your space and at the same time it can evoke a more energizing feeling if you choose a darker and brighter hue.  Blue is the coolest color – the color of the sky, ocean and twilight. It invokes rest and can cause the body to produce chemicals that are calming. Electric or brilliant blues become dynamic and dramatic, an engaging color that expresses exhilaration.  It is for this very reason that the color blue is so popular in interior design.

 

 

This blue accent wall looks great at the backdrop for the complimentary colored sofa. I like the addition of the yellowish/gold pillows and shade.

I love the color of this accent chair!  Blue is an easy color to layer in different hues. This bedroom is a great example.

blue-interior-decor-interior-design

 

 

Something about this room really gets my attention. Most likely all the layers of color and texture, in addition to all modern furniture. What a cool wallpaper! So retro!

I’m really into these dark shades of blue. They really add a rich depth to this space. Again, the layers of colors and textures are beautifully done in the room.

Forget blue on the walls, lets paint the floor! So cool! It’s like having the ocean in your home!

I love the contrast between the blue wall and the green headboard. It draws your eye right to it.  Where can I get this nightstand-its so cute!?

blue-interior-decor-interior-design

 

 

This all blue and white design is a classic.  I like the curtains and the print on the stool. I wouldn’t mind putting on my make-up here.

This bedroom is the definition of serene for me.  It evokes such a soothing and calming feeling.  Looks a little like  a room that could be in a boutique hotel.

blue-interior-decor-interior-design

 

 

This area rug is such a cool pattern. The layers of blue in this room really balance well together.

blue-interior-decor-interior-design

 

 

It’s no secret that I love modern furniture. Especially if it’s covered in this super cool blue fabric.  I just love this little nook!

blue-interior-decor-interior-design

 

 

What’s your favorite shade of blue? Do you like the shades showcased here or do you prefer this shade?
