We all have favorite color palettes that we love to decorate with. Outside of kid’s rooms, though, don’t most of us usually lean more towards safe and neutral color choices? They just seem more livable in the long run. However, today we want to show you that if done right bright colors can completely transform our living spaces into stunning, warm and inviting rooms. Rooms you’d love going into over and over. And since we are in the middle of the season of love, we decided explore bold pink and red room decor color choices for various areas of the home.
Red and pink are both extremely festive shades that can lighten up any living space with little effort. All one needs to do is to balance out the stark boldness of the colors with subtle contrasts that blend in with the overall look and feel of the room. The green in the room on the left above enhances the pink walls, giving the room a more rustic, rich and traditional feel. The art frames on the red wall soften as well as tone down the power of the strong color. At the same time the room has a warm, cozy and inviting feel that is perfect for lounging with friends and family.
Bold pinks and reds do not necessarily have to be limited to small parts of the living area to look nice. If used wisely they can bring out the vibrant character of the bedroom and lounge spaces of the house as well. Notice how the pink wall in the image on the left has been balanced out with white stencil overlay in addition to the white ceiling, floor and furniture. This makes the room look more breathable and spacious.
You might have seen reds most commonly used in dining rooms, especially on the East Coast. However, an all red room could get extremely tricky to decorate well, especially if the dining chairs and table are bulky and the room itself is relatively smaller. A lighter color on either the furniture or the curtains could break the monotony and make the room look spacious and elegant. By contrast, only a pop of pink seen in the image on the right “does it” for this dining room, making it fun and tasteful.
Bathrooms and powder rooms are always fun to experiment with color that allows you to create drama and interest. And which colors can do so better than pinks and reds? As a color, pink is very flattering to the skin, and having pink on the walls of your bathroom almost feels natural. The combination of red and black on the other hand creates drama that sets the perfect mood for those romantic evenings.
If you’ve been shying away from bold colors in your home decor, consider adding some red and pink room decor touches to spice things up a little bit. So, which room in your house are you ready to love with the addition of a pink or red color palette? Each room exudes its own charm with these colors, and can easily become one of the most beautiful spaces in the house.
