"The table, from Ikea, is a piece you don't expect to see in pink," he says, "and while I used pink as an accent throughout the room, I stayed away from a more even pink-and-green balance that might have looked preppier. I also avoided straight stripes, plaids and ginghams, and instead used a painterly, squiggled stripe on the headboard and large, modern leaf patterns throughout the room."
