Dusty Rose Color Palette
You may associate it with the ‘80s, but this soft shade of pink is making a comeback. Used here with gray-blue, deep purple and charcoal gray, the hue looks chic and on-trend.
This rose-inspired color is a more sophisticated, grown-up-friendly take on the typical pastel pink. In this master bedroom, dusty rose pillows look chic paired with plum and powder blue accents.
Soft and Soothing
A palette of soft beige, lavender and rose sets a calming tone for this transitional living room. Faux painted cabinet doors conceal the built-in entertainment center, creating an artful backdrop for the sitting area.
An Edgier Look
Dusty rose doesn't have to look soft and delicate. When paired with a charcoal gray sofa, rosy-colored pillows take on a more masculine tone.
Tired of gray and beige? A rosy wall color can work as a neutral, pairing well with lots of other colors. In this eclectic entryway, bold black-and-white hooks pop against the muted pink backdrop.
Dusty rose and teal may sound like a color palette straight out of the '80s, but it looks fresh and charming in this breakfast room featured in HGTV Magazine.
On-Trend Dining Room
Taking inspiration from Pantone's 2016 colors of the year, rose and gray-blue tones create a calming atmosphere in this dining room. An antique Italian marble chandelier and mirrored dining table amp up the glam factor.
Not Just for Kids' Rooms
If you're worried dusty rose will look too sweet or girly in your home, try pairing it with strong neutrals like tan, black or forest green. A rosy-hued bedspread adds a soft touch of color to this eclectic loft bedroom.
Straight From Nature
Dressed in a palette of rose and soft green, this living room brings the feeling of a lush garden inside. A black bookcase and lamps add weight and contrast to the space.
A rose-colored platform bed in sleek velvet and a gorgeous mirrored nightstand come together to create this glamorous master suite. The simple lines of both the furniture and accessories call attention to the soft color scheme and modern stylings of the room.
Warm and Cozy
Dusty rose looks especially inviting when paired with warm neutrals, like beige, brown and cream. With its all-around subdued color palette, this sitting room begs you to sit back and relax.
On the other hand, a rosy pink accent can really pop against cooler colors. In this transitional living room, two rose-colored chairs beautifully offset a navy blue sofa.
Pops of Pink
Dusty rose looks right at home with other shades of pink. In this chic home office, a rose-colored chair cushion complements the peach hues of the rug, tying the space together.
Grown-Up Girl's Room
More mature than a pastel pink, dusty rose is a great choice for a girl's bedroom. As she grows up, the space won't feel so juvenile.
