Decorating With The Pink/Yellow Color Combination


If you desire a bright, cheerful, yet feminine room....the pink and yellow combination may be just what you are looking for. This combination is responsible for some lovely rooms. Just remember that when it comes to decorating with pink and yellow, choosing the right shades and coming up with the right combination so you wind up with a balanced design is key to your success. It is easy for a room decorated in these colors to look garish, so be very careful. The pink/yellow room may not be the best do-it-yourself project. Hopefully  the images I have put together will inspire and assist you.





As you know I love classical spaces. Many times designers shy away from certain color combinations when it comes to historical interiors. I love this room and how it is still refined and elegant despite the bolder pink/yellow color combination. You will hear designers say if you use yellow and pink stay bold or stay pastel. This room is the perfect example why I pay little attention to the rules. This pop of bold hot pink brings life and excitement to this lovely room with it's soft yellow walls.



The lighter shades, such as pink and yellow, tend to add brightness and sunshine to a room.

This room is beautifully layered with pattern all in the pink/yellow color combination.



White and soft grey set  the stage but the bright yellow walls, pink flowers and chairs bordering on red  are the stars of this room.


A golden maize and reddish pink toile is proof of how the pink/yellow combo can be classical and refined. It all depends on how you use it.


Incorporate the pink/yellow combination through the use of arwork if you don't want to commit to a room more saturated with color.  The shirred fabric wall panel is a perfect temporary solution in case you grow tired of pink. Raspberry can be your choice of color for a pink/yellow inspired room.

One of my favorite color combinations is pink, yellow and green. My dining  room was once done in these colors.....with a touch or two of black.


Black is a great accent color for the pink/yellow combination.


If you crave this color combo but find it overwhelming, try white walls with pink and yellow pops of color. So pretty!

While I am not crazy about the room in the background, I do like the current and chic pink/yellow combo with a touch of turquoise added in for extra oomph. The modern wallpaper is nice mixed with the painted vintage chest of drawers.
