Decorating with pink

Dark pink paired with white looks fresh, modern and a little bit sexy, especially in the bedroom. You can go for it in a small way, like opting for a quilt stitched in contrasting dark pink like this bedding, or go full-tilt by pairing it with a hot-pink upholstered headboard.

An unexpected but totally fun place to add pink is in an office. "I wanted a pretty place where I could be inspired," explains Monika Hibbs, a popular lifestyle blogger. In her Vancouver home office, pink seems to rule but it’s really just added in a few choice accessories. A bouquet, a Moroccan-style pouf, the dustjacket of one book, the flower print on one cushion alone add enough pink to make the room feel pink without being dunked in it.

Damask is one of the most elegant, traditional prints going, and paired with pink, it’s just dynamite. Sure, wallpaper is a commitment but if you love the high impact of this wallpaper right now, you’ll love it for years to come. Bright pink looks charmingly regal contrasted against natural wood hues, like wooden floors. Desire Pink damask wallpaper, Graham and Brown, $75 per roll.
