Contemporary Pink Girls Bedroom

This contemporary pink girls bedroom by designer Linda Woodrum is one of my favorites. Notice how there is a lot of pink in the room, but it doesn’t overpower the space. One important reason for this is that the designer used several different shades of pink, as well as different patterns and textures.
The pink carpet is a dusty rose color, which could look dated (can’t you just imagine it in some 80s living room?), but here, it looks fresh. The throw blankets and accent pillows on the beds are hot pink (notice the texture on the pillows, while the polka dots on the other pillows are more of a rose color like the carpet. The walls are also a dusty dark pink color. The furniture and shadow boxes on the wall appear to be pale pink.
Also notice the neutral color of the chair upholstery, headboards, and window treatments. This helped offset the pink in the room.
When designing a contemporary pink bedroom, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, contemporary design is generally characterized by uncluttered space. This can be especially hard to achieve in a kids’ room, where toys, books, clothes, and general kids’ stuff seem to take over the space. One way to achieve a contemporary look in a kids’ room is to use attractive storage pieces, such as storage ottomans or cabinets. These items keep kid stuff out of sight, reducing clutter.
Second, contemporary design is characterized by clean lines. In the bedroom above, we can see these clean lines in the furniture that was chosen. The beds, dresser, and chairs are not ornate or traditional; rather, they are simple and unadorned.
Finally, contemporary design utilizes minimalist decoration. Here, we see that the designer has only two simple flower arrangements and wall shadowboxes for decoration. Every other piece in the room is utilitarian.
As we can see in the space above, contemporary design can be achieved in rooms for young people.
