Living room inspiration - pink, grey and beige

>> Sunday, July 10, 2011

I have started working on my living room. I have  grey walls, a beige sofa and a lucite table. I love neutral colors for the upholstered pieces as it allows me to change the look easily.

I was looking for pillows on Etsy while I came across one with a bold graphic pink fuchsia flower. I had to buy it! There are some things that you fall in love instantly.


If you think pink is for little girls, think again. Pink paired with neutrals like beige, white,brown, black and  grey create very classic elegant elegrooms. Pink works great with other accent colors like apple green, blue and orange.

I love the use of metallic accents paired with pink. Think of pink flowers in a silver cup.  You cannot go wrong with that!

Here is a quote I found on the Pantone website for the color Honey suckle pink  which is hot this year -- Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It’s a color for every day – with nothing “everyday” about it.

Here are pictures that inspire me.






Can't wait to see how the rooms will look when it is done!
Do check out my idea gallery and I hope to see you on GFC/Facebook and Twitter.

Pink just for little girls? No way! :0)
I love the pics for inspiration. If my hubby would let me do a pink palette for the living room, I totally would.
That plate display is gorgeous!
