Kitchens in The Pink

Beach House Kitchen from House Beautiful

Pink isn’t just for Barbie houses and bubble gum and sleuthing panthers. Pink is sweet, warm and soothing and a beautiful, surprisingly versatile color for many rooms. With the right pink, natural light creates a flush in the room (bonus: this is flattering to┬áskin tones). We prefer pinks that have more of a peachy, coral undertone. These shades are more sophisticated and pair nicely with rich browns, taupe, grays, cream and white. Bright accents can add pop and whimsey to a space, as seen in the kitchen above.

Bright Pink Kitchen from Desire to Inspire

Recently we started thinking pink thanks to a client. She was leaning towards a blue kitchen to offset her white cabinets and gray counters, BUT. . . she admitted to being drawn to coral. That particular shade was too bright so we compromised on a softer hue, Quaint Peche by Sherwin Williams. And guess what, she loves it (and promises to show us when the kitchen is complete)!

For more pink kitchen ideas, visit this color inspiration post on The Kitchn. Martha Stewart designed one of her many guest houses in shades of soft pink and it’s gorgeous. There is not a kitchen pictured in the tour, but the combinations of colors and textures are still inspirational and transfer to kitchens. Finally, we can’t let you go before a nod to the past with this fabulous 50′s all pink kitchen. . .
