Colorful Mix

This luxurious living room mixes violet, aubergine and fuchsia for an effect that really makes an impression. The velvet furniture and flocked damask wall covering bring life and texture to the space, while the zebra rug and gilded mirror add just enough neutral color to break up what is otherwise a pink-lover’s paradise. Design by Shelly Riehl David

Subtle Undertones

To add color to a light and airy room without taking away from the delicate feel of the space, try using a subtle shade of pink, like the blush-pink couch featured in this modern living room.

Pop of Color

To visually enhance a mostly neutral environment, add a hint of color. In this open living room, a multi-toned pink zebra rug and complementing footstool pop amidst the relaxed surroundings. Design by Charles Neal

Cohesive Variations

In this contemporary living room, classic furniture and lavish fabrics live in perfect harmony with the extravagant ceiling-to-floor, light-pink drapery and gorgeous fuchsia window seat. Design by Jennifer Jones

Exotic Shades

To create this Moroccan living area, designer Joe Berkowitz brought in a luxe pink couch, complete with several decorative pillows. The mix of metallics, pinks and turquoise makes what was once an unused space an exotic retreat.

Color Fusion

This open living room makes use of subtle fabrics and multiple fabric designs to add interest to the space. A soft pink hue offers the perfect amount of whimsy to the curtains, accent pillows and upholstery, which are all tied together by the multicolored painting in the background. Design by Ana Donohue

Bold Accents

The gray wingback chair, cowhide rug and oversized wood lamp in this living room are set in direct juxtaposition to the pink houndstooth stools and sherbet-colored pillows. But the overall effect is a perfect mix of classy and sweet. Design by Ana Donohue

Natural Effects

Even the most beautiful and basic living room can be improved upon with a dash of pink. Take this nature-inspired living area, for example, with its unadorned white furnishings, slate floor and walls of windows. The luscious pink wall hanging, containing 740 silk roses, adds color and charm while still playing within the natural theme. Design by Madelyn Simon
