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.
What do you think of bringing in a couple more colors to the pink and green scene … like blue and brown?
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.

A girl’s bedroom is the perfect space for testing out your fondness for decorating with pink and green.
Of course, it looks equally charming in a more grown-up bedroom.
A sweet little farmhouse bedroom shows its Victorian charm in pastel pink with a few hints of green in the wallpaper.
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.
A romantic dining table gets set in pretty pink and green, with pastels on the table and an old-fashioned toile pattern padding the dining chairs.
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!
I’d love to hear what some of your favorite color combinations are when it comes to decorating your home!
