Globalkicau.com – If you’re feeling a little peppy, consider incorporating pink into your family room. Not only is it a great way to brighten up the space, but it can also work with a wide variety of other colors and decor styles.
Alternative Beautiful and Calming Colors
A beautiful alternative to the bubble-gum and fuchsia counterparts, this soft pink is calming and soothing, perfect for a family lounge. Originally developed in Japan in the 1980s, forest bathing — also known as shinrin-yoku — involves slowing down and taking in the sights, sounds and scents of a forest. It’s been shown in about 20 studies to improve mental and physical health.
To get the most out of your forest bathing experience, set an intention before you enter the woods, like feeling relaxed, bringing more magic into your life or simply hearing the birdies sing. A forest bathing practice is easy to integrate into your everyday routine. It can be as simple as walking through a park or trail. But it can also be something more structured, such as taking a walk at lunch with a friend.
A jolt of pink in a family room can instantly liven up a dull space without overwhelming it. Even a small space can handle the color if you choose decor that communicates a current feel, as seen in this peppy room designed by Brittany Watson Jepsen of The House That Lars Built. A pale blush tone is a perfect choice for a softened-up look that encapsulates femininity and freshness, while richer tones of raspberry, fuchsia, and cerise make great accents for a more adventurous palette.
Adding a Touch of Romance to the Family Room
To add a touch of romance to a cosy living room, off-set muted shades of pink with darker hues on velvet furniture pieces and chunky knits for a layered look that feels warm and inviting. You can also bring a hint of blue undertones into the mix by picking out distressed-look wallpaper next to a light pink wall, as seen in this scheme. Japanese-inspired patterns are all about being at one with nature and creating a tranquil space. They are based around traditional designs that date back centuries and are often found on furniture, paper fans or baskets of reeds or grasses.
Bringing a touch of these patterns into your family room is a simple way to add a little extra flair without straying too far from the minimal theme. You can also accessorize your room with small statues or painting for an added touch of style. Another way to bring a little Japanese flair into your family room is by adding kawaii LED lights. These are a great way to add a splash of color and make your space look more inviting, especially in dark rooms.
A lick of pink paint can make a feature wall feel like a romantic oasis. Pair it with white-washed wood panelling and natural, earthy tones to create a feminine look that feels relaxed and comfortable. It’s not easy to go overboard with a colour this bold, but with the right design, it’s not hard to achieve a truly beautiful room. We’ve rounded up the best pink-inspired decorating ideas to inspire you to bring a touch of blush into your home.
The Right Choice Creates Interesting Backgrounds
Rose pink is a softer shade of the classic pink and can be used as an accent wall or for an entire room. It can also be paired with white to create a bright, airy space. If you’re not keen on painting a whole room in pink, there are other ways to add this colour to your living space. For a more subtle approach try picking out an interesting key feature, such as a chimney breast, with a splash of your chosen pink shade to create an eye-catching backdrop. Alternatively, a pale peach toned pink on the wall with pale grey furniture will help to give your living space a softer edge and will also help to lift the spirits of a north-facing room.
Using mid-grey as your ceiling paint will help to offset the lighter, pale pink walls. This is especially effective in small rooms as it will make the room feel less imposing and will give it more of a spacious feel.
