Pink fabric is powerfully decadent and a color loved by many! It works surprisingly well with any color palette or on it’s own.
Trends change but pinks are always in style especially that perfectly medium shade of carnation. Timeless pink fabric demands attention. Shades of blush, fuchsia, coral or flamingo are feminine and happy. Color psychology shows us light to medium hues have a calming affect and feel pleasant. Strong, hot shades create confidence and energy.
So how do we decorate with pink fabric as an adult without our spaces looking like a nursery?
The answer lies in your strategy.
Ask yourself, how versatile and transitional is the space. An easy way to wake up neutral decor without committing to a room full of pink is to use a bold punch of color. We suggest a fuchsia sofa – yes! Jumper fabric, in Petunia, from Valdese Weavers is an extremely durable option for upholstery; saturated with color. It’s herringbone texture is classic; making it appropriate for all decors. And, Valdese fabrics are made in the USA (woo-hoo!).
Deep shades of berry pink fabric also pair well with black and white and more currently, gray.
If you want to subtly introduce pink into your decor, try shades of blush or coral pink fabric to soften a room. If you decorate with golden yellows, olive or chartreuse greens, playful pops of pink make the room come alive, while remaining livable.
If you are not afraid of pink, combine multiple rosy shades together!
If you want to tuck pink away, treat spaces like a walk-in closet or powder room as a jewel box, using the color as a focal point. When you open the doors, the delightful hue will awaken your senses. Metallic and white accents add a glamorous touch.
Modern pink fabrics need not always be girly. In the words of Gucci’s creative director, Alessandro Michele, “I adore pink; it’s powerful. It makes you feel sweet and sexy, even if you are a man.” So, don’t be afraid to THINK PINK!
