From Pale to Powerful: Which Pink is Too Pink?

From Pale to Powerful: Which Pink is Too Pink?

I find pink to be very polarizing. No other color has so many die-hard fans; no other color produces such feelings of distaste. It's baby girls, it's breast cancer awareness, it's Pepto Bismol, it's Barbie. When it comes to decorating, the conventional wisdom regarding pink is to tread lightly. You don't want to be overwhelmed. Or do you?

Here are 15 interiors with walls painted in varying shades of pink, from barely there to bubble gum to magenta. What do you think? Which rooms are just pink enough — and which ones are too much?
