I always thought that if I had a girl I would refuse to dress her in pink. Well, I have boys so pink is actually not a part of my life. So, when my client recently told me her daughters wanted a pink room in their new house, it actually made me smile. Mom wants to embrace pink to make her girls happy, but doesn’t want it to become a pepto-bismol explosion. I found the perfect jumping off point in a pillow I found at Target.
Color stories have to start somewhere and this pillow had the right mix of pink, blue and teal. Girly, yet modern and beachy. This mood board shows you how to pull of this look by sprinkling in the pink, yet grounding it with the blues. Also I’m a big believer in warming up rooms with wood, and while I’m partial to a walnut finish, I felt that an oak finish had a more beachy, sandy vibe. The piece de resistance is the chandelier made with glass beads reminiscent of beach glass.
I love this modern beachy, breezy girl’s room and I love the pink. If I had a girl, this is how I would do pink.
