Decorating with Turquoise and Pink

Pantone’s Honeysucke may have been kicked into touch this year by  Tangerine Tango, but turquoise and pink is still a very popular colour combination.

Complementary colours are very appealing to the eye and bright bold colour palettes can look stunning.  Use turquoise with soft shades of pastel pinks for a soft feminine look or add some punch with hot pinks and cranberry.

A turquoise bed teamed with pretty floral linens creates a lovely French country feel to this room.

But don’t go crazy people.  Unless you have large bright rooms and high ceilings, it can be difficult to live with such strong colours.

For a more understated look, think about adding turquoise and pink as accent colours and stick with a more neutral tone on the primary walls.

  1. Lovely! I like the second one very much, but I would have prefered a lamp like this one from Delightfull on the night stand: http://delightfull.eu/table/miles_table.html, I think it would lighten up the room a bit without being too bright.

  2. Great blog. Thank you for sharing
