I suspect it would be a fairly safe bet to say a great many homeowners would not willingly select a piece of pink furniture for their home. In fact, a couple of my clients come to mind! But let's have a little fun, toss aside our reservations, and take a look at some spaces that have been furnished with a pink item or two.
To begin, here is some background information on this color. From the 1920's to 1940's, pink was considered an appropriate color for boys because, being related to red, it was the more masculine color. How about that? Blue, on the other hand, was considered appropriate for girls because it was the more delicate and dainty color. Since the 1940's, however, pink has become a hue that has become strongly associated with femininity.
Does the fact that these pink chairs are Eames Rocking Chairs tempt a serious rethinking of the color pink as an option for furniture? They make a very striking image, sitting on this rustic porch against dark walls.
A somber brown tweed would be the expected fabric on this chair, with its simple masculine lines. Instead, the choice of pink looks just divine placed in this room of neutrals and alongside the beautiful seafoam walls.
If an actual piece of pink furniture is too big of a commitment, try bringing in a fabulous pink chair or two in the form of a fun wall decal. What a delightful idea for a girl's bedroom.
