What Houzz contributors are saying:
Smoky pink. Rich, warm pinks with a bit of gray or brown are sophisticated and (despite preconceptions about pink) equally appealing to men and women. Warm rose, peony and raspberry pinks with a bit of smokiness look magnificent with rich browns and champagne.Tell us: What is your favorite shade of pink, and how do you use it in your home?More: Nature’s Color Wisdom: Lessons on Green From the Great Outdoors
7. Assess the scale of your furniture. Often we try to cram the furniture that worked in a previous home into the current space, even when the scale is no longer a good match for the room. In a small room, you will generally want to avoid the overstuffed and oversize in favor of small-scale pieces. But it is possible to go too far, filling the room with too many itty-bitty things. Strive for balance.
Off-whites are not limited to ivory, tan and pale yellow. Expand your range by using whites that are tinted with colors such as coral or apricot. These warm peachy-pinks are well suited for traditional spaces and they are always in vogue.
Color affects us deeply, and pink is still the females' domain. The curvy lines of these chairs, combined with their shell-pink silk upholstery, are all feminine charm in this lovely room. Girls (and women) only here!
