Fresh Color Combo: Pink & Green

It's interesting to me how different color combos evoke different feelings. Pink and green: girly, preppy. The pairing is actually quite a natural one; red and green live opposite to each other on the color wheel, making them complementary colors, and pink is really just a light red. From blush to dusty rose, emerald to celadon, see what pink and green can do for you.

4. Where do I begin with this room? I love the contrast between the ornate moldings and the modern furniture. The art piece brings an edginess to this traditionally girly combo. From a Paris apartment by Laplace & Co.
