To keep the pink-and-green scheme in this Hamptons guest room looking sophisticated rather than sophomoric, designer John Loecke chose streamlined furniture and graphic fabrics with large-scale prints.

"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."

Get The Look
The patterns lend this space a youthful but not childish feeling, as does Loecke's restraint with the green paint. "I used this grass green only on the wall behind the bed," he says, "The other three walls are white. That way, you have the grassy green color but it doesn't overwhelm the room."
