A rat tail cactus (Disocactus flagelliformis) reaches toward the ground as it spills over this hanging basket. Its bright pink bloom brings the attention back up to the metal container selected by designer Ryan Benoit.
The previous kitchen in the couple's home was small and closed in with very little countertop or cabinet space. Brio Interior Design's renovations, though, have replaced the outdated stock cabinets and formica countertops with modern, custom cabinets and an elegant butcher block countertop. One set of lower cabinets extends across the exterior wall, while another set was created across the open kitchen to provide plenty of storage and counter space. The lower cabinets are painted black in warm contrast with the white subway tile walls and white upper cabinets. Details such as the beautiful pink flower and brass fixtures bring an exotic feel to the space.
The half dome of this home's master bedroom ceiling was inspired by neoclassical designs and is painted with a pink tone. The molding is detailed in a light blue, recalling a soft sunrise or sunset. Paint colors used for the ceiling are "Ointment Pink," with the molding detailed in Farrow & Ball's "Skylight."
This traditional pink nursery features a changing table dresser with an oval vintage mirror hanging above. Darker pink bird wall decals add a sweet detail. Below the white arched window is a pink wicker basket for extra storage.
This inviting sitting room features a pink silk velvet sofa with nailhead detail, ivory faux shagreen nesting tables and a large leather upholstered ottoman. Golden lamps add a metallic touch while the paintings pull jewel tones into the room.
With all the crisp details of a subway station, but ever so much more elegant, this huge walk-in shower has room for two and houseplants on the side. Pops of pink in the form of toiletries are a sweet addition.
To give a child’s room makeover longevity, start neutral and then add color in the details and art. Egypt Sherrod decorated this room as part of a Dwell with Dignity makeover, and she started with light, airy decor and then added pink and purple accents fitting for this little girl’s room. Sherrod’s favorite part of the space is the woven light fixture.
Luxurious patterned carpeting and neutral furnishings balance out the bright pink shelving in this glamorous dressing room designed by Nicole Norris, ASID, NCIDQ. Details such as a contemporary gold chandelier add a touch of glamour to the space. Since the room was so large, several ready-made furniture pieces were added in addition to the custom shelving.
Designer Mariah O’Brien’s tried and true color for living rooms is a nice warm white. “White can be as vivid or soft as any other color as it has a variety of undertones and tints. Finding the right white that works is the key. I have some go-to favorites: Benjamin Moore’s Alabaster White and light beige, as they contain a subtle undertone of pink, which I believe truly flatters the skin and allows for a nice glow.” O’Brien warns against using whites that contain yellow or blue undertones. “They tend to look dingy or too cool.”
This detailed exterior is an authentic example of the gingerbread-style Victorian. Delicate architectural detail and a multi-gabled roofline are characteristic of the style and era. White molding decorates the front porch and multiple balconies, providing subtle contrast to the pale pink exterior for added visual interest.
