Classic Color Combinations: Pink & Green

Classic Color Combinations: Pink & Green

At first consideration, the pairing of pink and green might bring to mind 1970s preppy style, or perhaps 1950s kitchens and bathrooms — not exactly the kind of look most of us want to emulate today. But this combination, when skillfully handled, can be calming, invigorating, chic, or just plain fun.

  1. Designer Emily Henderson's vision for the Oh Joy! studio uses pink and green in their most vibrant versions.
  2. The bright grass-green lamps in this dining room, shot for Vogue and found on Dustjacket, look lovely against its pale pink walls.
  3. Pink toile and sage green make for a perfect pair in this dining nook, from Rue Magazine.
  4. Pink and green in their most preppy forms are boosted with white in this room from Better Homes & Gardens.
  5. The peachy-pink walls and celadon blinds of this bedroom, from Sarah Gilbane Interiors, make a perfectly pretty pairing.
  6. Emily Henderson must love this combination too, because she's at it again in her own guest bedroom.
  7. In this room, from the book Decorate Workshop by Holly Becker, via The Curated House, the shades are both muted for a quiet, elegant look.
  8. An emerald and blush combination for a formal but fun home office, from Charlotte Home & Garden via Emily A. Clark.
  9. This room, from Design Public, only has a hint of pink, but doesn't it look lovely on those sage green walls?
  10. Ok, so the pink here is just coming from the flowers, but the combination of emerald and pale pink is lovely, especially with the edition of wood, black and white. From Designer Grant K. Gibson.
