Who knew that pale pink and baby blue were the most popular color combo of the season? It makes sense why…they pair together just wonderfully! Let’s find out how we can blend these two amazing tones to create magic in any space!
When you see these two colors, you probably think of a baby boy and girl, right? We want to show you that there is more to them than just colors on a wall. Instead of separating them and associating pink for a girl’s room and blue for a boy’s, start thinking of them as a pair, a color team! The said color combo is a bit daring and is extremely underrated thanks to its risk factor. While most homeowners can’t envision pairing pink and blue together, we’re here to tell you that it’s time to start! You’ll achieve a fresh look that’s elegant yet sleek.
For those of you who are a bit apprehensive to combine these colors, we’ll start simple and easy. Ease yourself into the mindset by mixing light shades of each. Start small with accessories, like a baby blue flower pot next to a light pink picture frame, or a pink salt & pepper shaker beside a light blue kitchen towel. The European flat photographed above did this exactly with a light pink and a pastel blue. The outcome is clean and fresh, especially with the granite and the lattice door panels. Who wouldn’t want to call this fun place, home?
For those who are excited to try the color scheme out, but are a bit nervous, we think a deep navy and light pink or a turquoise and pale pink would work wonders for you. You can really let your imagination run wild since there are so many beautiful shades of each color to choose from!
If you’re ready to jump in head first, we recommend choosing bold shades of each color. The result is a funky, daring space that guests won’t want to leave. If you’re looking to leave people talking, go for a hot pink and royal blue…just trust us!
Don’t limit yourself to just accessories; furniture and textiles in these colors is also a great idea. A deep navy velvet couch in the reading room will look wonderful next to a pink side chair. So will grandma’s old wooden dresser refinished in a hot pink next to a patterned turquoise runner in the entry. Last but especially not least, take that bland leather sofa that’s been in the family for years, and throw a quilted navy pillow on it and don’t forget that pink velvet throw blanket your daughter gifted you for your birthday!
The one thing you have to remember when working with these colors is that: the sky’s the limit! Let your mind wander, and go with your gut!
