It's time to take pink out of the nursery. Don't fret: there are easy rules to follow to avoid the frilly, overly-feminine look. First and foremost, forget Pepto-Bismol and embrace these warm pink hues that don't scream Disney princess.
If you're a pink virgin, start small with blush-hued drapes. The crinkled nature of those pictured above offer a more casual aesthetic (read: not prom-like).
If you're ready to throw some pink paint onto your walls, try colour-blocking with a muted shade. I suggest a pink that almost reads as beige or grey — that way it will feel more like a neutral.
You're ready to commit to a pink upholstered piece? Hats off to you! Keep it from looking too sweet by pairing it with not-so-feminine decor elements, such as the raw wood-plank wall and linen pillows pictured in this modern Scandinavian beach house.
This gem is Bodie & Fou co-founder Karine Kong's home in London. Her daughter Mila picked the colour after judging their home's interior as being "too white". I dream of a house where the front door could be painted cotton-candy pink! You really can't go wrong with such a neutral façade. Beautiful.
