Will Yellow, Orange & Pink Work Together?

Good Questions

Q: So I bought this orange and yellow bedding a while back when I got a great deal on a deal-of-the-day site. Problem is, now that I'm getting ready to actually start decorating my almost 3 year old's "big girl" room, she's absolutely obsessed with pink! (Actually, we're buying a new house, so we have a big, bright "blank slate" space to work with.). So now I'm trying to figure out how I can marry my orange and yellow bedding with her love of pink without making the color scheme a complete mish-mosh of crazy color. Will those colors work together? (continued…)

I thought some Flor carpeting (like this and mixing in some yellow tiles) or this PB Teen rug might be a good start, but I can't seem to find much else for inspiration (I'd love some throw pillows for the bed with all 3 colors). Any specific ideas/inspiration/products would be welcomed!

Editor: While it was harder finding rooms that combined all three of these colors, The mini-gallery above shows rooms that use at least two of these colors together. I think your idea of pulling all three together in a rug is definitely on the right track. Artwork is another great way to use these colors in combination. You can search for "pink yellow orange" in the art section of Etsy, for example, and find artwork with these colors together. Readers, what do you think? Any advice for Kelly?
