This pink nursery is fit for a princess with a white iron crib, matching iron chandelier and floral pink and white arm chair. Pink painted walls and ceiling create a full color room with white crown molding, white paneling and arched white windows. A wood side table adds a counter to the pink theme, and darker pink bird wall decals are a fun, whimsical detail.
Pack some serious visual impact by giving a basic flat-front dresser designer flair with a painted chevron pattern in three, five or seven of your favorite paint colors. In this design from Brian Patrick Flynn, the dresser takes the purple of the wall and the pink from the pillow and combines them with lighter shades of purple for a fun and vibrant accent piece.
Light pink paint on the wall, sconces and a small chandelier give the room a look that's bright and airy as well as feminine. A wood shingle effect accent wall adds texture to the room and is matched by awnings over the windows.
“The trick to tackling a huge room like this is to divide it up into zones and that's just what this design trio does so well,” says designer Candice Olson. “There is an area to take in the view; a sprawling wall shelf that doubles as both display and seating; (great for those big LA parties); and a main conversation grouping that floats in front of the fireplace. I think the wall art is the strongest element in this space. Large tree-motif panels suit the grand scale of the space, as does the ingenious bubble-wrap wall hanging backed with a very current fretwork graphic — someone’s going to Design Heaven for that move. And can we talk about the pink ducks?! The 3-D element of these wooden sculptures animates the massive fireplace wall but this team doesn’t stop there. A quart of neon-pink paint has these ducks kicking sand in the feathered faces of their pink flamingo cousins. It’s this touch of the unexpected that prevents a serious room like this from looking too somber and that can make a good design a great one. As strong as the wall art is, I feel the decorative elements placed along the wall shelves and mantel are suffering from a case of "Honey, I shrunk the accessories." Big rooms need big accessories — lamps, candlesticks or pedestals, ceramics and mirrors — all large-scaled to suit. I would have opted for a huge, free-form, wood coffee table. Glass tends to visually disappear and is a better choice to help keep the feeling open and uncluttered in small spaces.”
A front door in a unique or bold color (or both!) instantly wakes up the front porch. For this 1918 Craftsman home, pink is the star. Front door paint color: Sherwin Williams Amaryllis; Small rug: Target
