Pretty in Pink
There's no more feminine colour than pink, and little girls seem to gravitate toward all things rosy. Resene and Gorgi create a girl's room that's comfortable and calming.
A pink bedroom need not be filled with ruffles and lace. Choose your colours carefully and you will create a space that is feminine, playful, and cosy, and best of all, will last the distance. Choosing your paint carefully is the obvious first step to creating a sophisticated "girly" room that will grow with your daughter, and will lend itself to her collection of treasures as she grows up. Rose-pink is an earthy pigment; a clean, blush tint that is very usable and adds a fresh look in the bedroom. This is the perfect pink colour choice for painted walls and will work with both contemporary and classic styling. Pair this with soft soft sage greens, either minimally or in quantity (such as painted wooden chairs or statement walls) and off-whites to create a stunning combination with furniture and frames in light wood finishes. For those wanting a mature alternative, choose accent colours in chocolate, antique brown, taupe, or even black and darker wood finishes.
THE RESENE COLOUR PALETTE
Pink was the colour of choice for this quintessential girl's room. We used Resene Wafer Pink, a soft rose pink with cool blue tones - the perfect background colour to pair with soft furnishings in sage green, hot pink, pale yellow, and off-white. Window frames were painted off-white with Resene Pearl Lusta and a vintage chair in Resene Pine Glade for antiqued colour and warmth. For those wanting slightly more depth in colour we recommend Resene Lipstick, a bolder pink best reserved for accessory furniture and smaller items. Walls were finished in Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen and trim and joinery in Resene Lustacryl.
