Pink and black are a very versatile color combination when decorating a bedroom. These colors can be used quite effectively in a bedroom, especially when highlighted with pink and black bedding. Pink and black can be used to create a dramatic, modern, eclectic, romantic or even quaint look in a room, depending on the fabrics chosen and the accessories added to the overall room decor. While pink is often thought of as a "girl's color," adding black to the pink will allow you to create bedroom looks that would be attractive for even the master bedroom.
Pink and Black as Solid Color Accents
When choosing pink and black bedding, try combining a solid pink or black bedspread with a collection of pink and black pillows. This method can be used to create a number of different visual effects. While a hot pink bedspread with black and pink-colored pillows might look great in a teen's room, a solid black bedspread with a combination of pink and black pillows could look elegant and even romantic in the master bedroom. A softer shade of pink often looks best when decorating the master bedroom. When using pink and black in the master bedroom, playing up the black as the primary bedding color can often be the best approach. A solid color bedspread can also be combined with pillows in a print fabric, such as black pillows with a small pink pin dot pattern or a black and pink stripe. This type of color combination can look extremely sophisticated in the master bedroom, especially if you choose plush, luxurious fabrics.
Pink and Black as Patterns
Don't overlook patterns when selecting pink and black bedding. You can create an interesting visual effect by combining a print fabric comforter with solid color pillows. For example, a black and white floral bedspread would look great with a pile of black, white and pink pillows. A pink and white patterned comforter would also look great with black and pink pillows, especially combined with a glossy black painted bed frame.
Adding Romance with Pink and Black
The combination of pink and black can make for a very seductive and romantic look in the bedroom. For a woman's bedroom, a pink bedspread combined with black and pink pin dot pillows can add a sophisticated and sensual look. Or, choose floral prints in pink and black to add a feminine romantic touch to the bedroom. In the master bedroom, combine black, white and pink accents to add a seductive look to the bedroom without creating a "frilly" appearance.
Adding Fun with Pink and Black
Pink and black can be a lot of fun in the bedroom, adding a funky touch that teenage girls love. Retro prints in pink and black are popular, as well as the combination of pink and zebra striped patterns. A glossy black bed combined with a hot pink bedspread and zebra print pillows would create a fun look that almost any teenage girl would enjoy. Pink and black are also quite effective for decorating a baby girl's nursery. If the room color is predominantly pastel pink, the addition of black can add a touch of sophistication. However, hot pink and black can also look fresh and sophisticated when used in the nursery.
