How To Decorate Using Red and Pink

– Pair Pink With Red– Pink rooms are best when they are paired with red.  Red is the primary color of pink and the two shades go hand in hand.  Consider adding the color red in bright splashes seen in abstract art.

– Work With Several Shades Of Pink– Consider buying a few really nice prints that have the shade of pink or red color.  If you have an oil portrait that you want to manipulate, consider taking it to a local artist to change the background.

– Work With Velvets And Silks – these fabrics contain the most brilliant saturated shades.  Consider upholstering with both.

– Work With Shades Opposite On The Color Wheel– Shades of green, blue or yellow work wonderful combined with red.
