The mostly white living room perks things up with fuschia interiors for the built-in shelving units on either side of the fireplace. The bright color is brought out into the room with pink pillows and two striped armchairs.
The architectural details in this dining room allow for a fun splash of color on the domed ceiling and butler's wing. The Greek key wallpaper is light and neutral, balancing the boldness of the hot pink. A white chandelier offers the perfect touch of elegance.
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.
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.
This transitional living room features peach-hued walls paired wit medium grain wood trim. A pink velvet ottoman sits at the center of the room, while two cherry wood U-shaped chairs are positioned nearby. The striped curtains and vibrant pink floral arrangements add colorful accents.
Pink walls bring a girlish feel to this transitional dining room. The large, white pendant light above the dining table echoes the handsome wall sconces while the clean lines of the neutral seating keeps this space feeling fresh and simple.
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.
