Pink Transitional Girl's Bedroom With Blue Bed Linen
Contrast was key to this room’s design success. Careful doses of black and white were added in equal measure, such as the curtains and artwork over the bed. Then they were mixed with small pops of saturated color to create a playful, but not overly childish, feel.
Pink and White Transitional Living Room With Striped Chairs
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.
Pink and White Transitional Dining Room With Pink Ceiling
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.
Pale Pink Girl's Bedroom With Rope Swing and Black Bed
As seen on HGTV's "Genevieve's Renovation," designer Genevieve Gorder created a playful bedroom for her daughter with an indoor swing, geometric pendant light and bold pops of color. The black wood bed provides contrast to the neutral focal wall for added visual interest.
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.
An elegant platform bed upholstered in rich navy velvet anchors this bedroom with walls painted a very faint shade of millennial pink. The room combines interesting textures, coastal-inspired art and industrial elements that fit the locale.
Built-in storage acts like a magic trick on kid clutter. Toys, books, stuffed animals are organized easily away into this playroom's built-in shelving. In another kid-friendly move, the bench cushion is upholstered in durable performance fabric.
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.
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.
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.
