Decorating with Pink and Green

Pink and green is one of my all-time favorite color combinations. Ever since I was a little girl I was attracted to pink and green. Green was my best friend’s favorite color, and mine was pink. We watched 4th of July fireworks together every summer and we most loved the fireworks that were half green, half pink. To this day, I still think of Joan when watching fireworks. She also comes to mind when I see examples of decorating with pink and green. (Photos from Houzz. Click on image to be taken to original.)

Some people think pink and green come across as too preppy … but look at this beautifully romantic living room! Overstuffed pink couches against pale green walls, paired with a pretty rose print on the side chairs.

Pink and green don’t always need to look sweet and innocent together. This mod glam room shows that decorating with pink and green can be sophisticated.

Pink and green can be soft and subtle too. My mother’s living room was pink with touches of green and it was rather elegant. She had me sponge paint her walls in soft pink and the adjoining dining room wore a sage green wallpaper in a small print.

If you prefer to tone down the pink and green, white is a perfect complement. One accent wall, a rug, and a few pillows may be all that’s needed to satiate your favorite color combo, whatever that combination might be.

So far all I’ve shown is living rooms, but pink and green can make its appearance in any room. What do you think of the pink claw foot tub and the green vanity?  I think it’s fun and playful and would be perfect for a girl’s bathroom.

Of course, it looks equally charming in a more grown-up bedroom.

Whether bold and modern, or soft and romantic, the combination of pink and green is endearing to me. It must stem from those early childhood memories of fireworks and summer fun.

So what do you think?  Are you a fan of pink and green? When we first moved into our current home, I painted the living room a very pale pink with white painted trim. The outside was also painted pink by the previous owner, which I loved, but we ended up changing it to yellow.

As you can see by this charming example, you don’t have to relegate it to the outside of your home. Victorian houses are a good choice for decorating with pink and green on the outside of the house, as well as the inside!

  6. Love this…reminds me of a lot of interiors in Florida….casual and yet sophisticated…Such cheerful rooms and many touches of elegance…Loving the sherbet colors of late!

  7. The first formal gown I could call my own was purchased for me by my late sister, who was 12 years older than me and was like a second mother. The dress was a beautiful a-line in sweet pink chiffon and the bodice had a beautiful sheer lace overlay in pink roses and sagey green leaves. She also purchased some love Italian made sling-back heels to match. I absolutely loved it and fell in love with the color combination. I was sixteen and so you know that was a very long time ago! I think that dress would still be in fashion today as it was a classic! I loved your post!

  8. Growing up my bedroom was pink and green and I absolutely loved it! They are such cheery colors and can make any room feel more fun and inviting! That pink clawfoot tub is incredible. I’m already looking for ways to do the same to mine, thanks for sharing!
