Layers of blush and white give this bedroom a feminine look. White and green floral arrangements decorate the bedside table, while a velvet pink bolster pillow and paisley pillow add a pop of color to the white bed linens. A black wooden bed frame lends a traditional touch.
The corner of the room keeps things organized with a white dresser and two beautiful covered baskets whose blue and yellow patterns add colorful personality. A tray, as seen on top of the dresser, is a great way to corral mismatched items and stop them from feeling like clutter.
This guesthouse bedroom features pink walls but amps up the color when it comes to the bed linens. Hues of red and orange add appeal in the comforter and pillows while a built-in dresser provides functionality.
In large rooms, pay close attention to the shape, size and scale of any featured artwork. When small subjects are placed across a generously sized room, they lose their impact and appear more as visual clutter than a focal point. Here, in the multipurpose workspace located off the kitchen, an oversized fiberglass Trojan horse grounds the space and creates a focal point from across the great room.
Blue and Pink Transitional Library With Striped Curtains
Blue and pink are a surprisingly grown-up combination in this handsome library, in part because of the room's sophisticated details: a plush Oriental rug, tailored armchairs, a delicate coffee table. Stripes on the curtains are a hint of a jaunty nautical touch.
Neutral pieces help to break up a pink palette in this sitting room featured in the HGTV Green Home 2011. The chair and floor lamp have strong but graceful lines, helping to offset the intensity of the pink.
This adorable nursery blends antique finds with graphic prints and playful color to create a space that's chic for any age. The pink stripes are a subtly feminine touch.

Pre-Teen's Pink and Purple Bedroom With Floral Accent Wall
This pre-teen girl's bedroom was redone as a departure from the "princess" theme using bright raspberry and purple hues. A bold accent wall with floral wallpaper and funky upholstery on the window seat offer a graphic punch to the space, while a padded headboard gives the bed a touch of elegance.
You would never know that this fabulous walk-in closet was created from an outdoor storage room. An exterior door and window were closed and removed to allow space for custom built-in shelving, providing ample room for clothing, shoes and jewelry. The custom-designed full-length mirror and the sconces flanking it stand out in front of the horizontal striped wallpaper. Nicole Norris, ASID, NCIDQ, is responsible for the dressing room design in this North Carolina home.
The same coral paint used in this entryway carries on throughout the great room, making all areas work cohesively. The white wainscoting helps tone down the saturation of the coral while also protecting the walls from everyday wear and tear in and out of the front door.
Pink and Gold Girl's Bedroom With Colorful Pillows and Paintings
This fun girls' bedroom features two twin beds, each covered in pink and yellow patterned upholstery and dressed in gold polka dot bed linens. Colorful pillows, inkling a pom pom throw pillow, decorate the bed, while framed finger paintings hang above each bed. Faux fur rugs are positioned at the foot of each bed.
A hot pink built-in bed makes fun use of an awkward space under the eaves in this girl's bedroom. Basketweave wallpaper adds a bit of sophistication that lets the space mature with its young owner. Wallpaper: Quadrille; Dresser: West Elm; End table: CB2
