Long the domain of little girls' bedrooms, pink is a color more versatile than many would think. From a pale cotton candy to bright salmon to dusty grey-rose, pink evokes softness, femininity, health and innocence. It is considered a soothing color, while maintaining the warmth of red without the intensity. The right shade can certainly grace an adult bedroom or guest room to create a comforting retreat without being frilly.

There is a wide range of pink shades from which to choose, depending on your personal preference and decorating style. For a look that evokes both comfort and sensuality, consider a pale pink with a hint of beige on the wall behind a dark wooden headboard, flanked with brushed-metal light fixtures. If you prefer a more romantic or Victorian look, slide a painted-white brass bed against a wall painted in a dark muted pink, and furnish with sumptuous bed linens and gold-tone light fixtures with crystal touches.

Brighter shades of pink add a touch of glamour. If you don't want the room to look too feminine, balance your pink walls with a tufted headboard and rugs in mossy green or soft brown, or go with a large wooden headboard. A rich pink with purple tones can create a seductive look in a romantic bedroom. Pink with undertones of raspberry and rose can be flattering to a variety of skin tones. Coral, in the pink family, has an extra note of cheeriness and looks great paired with complementary bright colors, neutrals or whites.

Want a contemporary look that pops? Combine pink walls, in either a solid color or striped pattern, with a comforter and window treatments in black, black-and-white stripes or animal print. For a preppy look, combine pink with lime green. Even hot pink looks cool when paired with a white bed, dresser and other furniture. For an Art Deco look, choose black as your accent color, and choose shiny silver metal light fixtures. For a more country look combine pink with other warm tones and wood furniture, or try cool white-washed furniture. One wall painted a bright pink lends an element of surprise.

If your little girl is set on pink, of course, you can go all-out. Create a princess paradise with a cotton-candy shade paired with lacy or eyelet-trimmed bed linens and curtains, white furniture and a small chandelier. Many older girls like bright pink, which looks great with other colors such as green, blue, turquoise or orange.
