Color Love :: Pink + Orange

My last post was about Patrick Gilles and Dorothée Boissier’s fabulous Paris apartment, which is in a very neutral palette of whites and greys so I’m feeling a little hungry for color today.  I've already professed my love for orange so it is no surprise that one of my favorite playful color combos is pink and orange.

 In one of my apartments I had the walls painted a Pepto Bismol pink {it’s the best way I can think of describing the color!} with a headboard covered in a pink, orange, brown and white horizontal stripe and I adored it.  People thought I was crazy and wondered how I could sleep in a room painted such a stimulating color.  I actually found it to be quite soothing -- at night with only bedside table lamps lights lit it was warm and cozy.  It goes without saying that my landlord wasn't too pleased when it came time to paint over the vibrant shade!

Without further ado, here are some inspiring images of interiors decorated in pink and orange!

Using neutral tones on the walls bring the pink and orange combo center stage.

The duo of pink and orange doesn't have to be "in your face," you can use softer shades of the colors to tone it down.

I love the subtle color changes in the drapes on the canopy bed.

There's that Manuel Canovas toile again!  This time it's on both the walls and the curtains.  For more on upholstered walls check out my post here.
