Cool Idea: Pink Walls and a Patterned Floor

Creative lady extraordinaire Medley recently turned a forgotten attic at a Craftsman home into a patterned and pink wonderland. She explains, "I have a degree in Architecture, and when I work full time, that's my main profession. I think that makes me a little bolder in my color selections than is typical. I also design jewelry, but that's mostly for fun. The inspiration for my room started with a similar shade of pink in an old article in Domino magazine. I went to the craft store with that in mind, and went through scrapbook paper, picking out a pallette with 2 shades of pink, robin's egg blue, and a dark purple. I planned all along to accent with black & white. The original plan was to have all black and white furniture and a robin's egg blue chenille or matalesse bedspread. At this point it's a work in progress. The scroll pattern for the floor was inspired by this floor in the Lena Corwin contest, though mine is more geometric and precise."

For the walls, Medley used Behr paint matched to Ralph Lauren's Belmont Pink. For the floor, Medley used Behr Evening Violet for the scroll designs and Black Orchid for the background. The trim is Behr Swan Wing, and the radiator is Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch in Berry Pink.

I love the contrast between the pink and the patterned, darker floor. And as a lover of bold color myself, I appreciate Medley's choice of pinks. Beautiful work!

the floorings cool and so's the radiator. it may have been nice to have had the flooring and the radiator pink and perhaps the walls in an alternative colour? all round really nice though!

Not sure I could deal with pink paint, but I love the floor! Part of me wonders if it would look the same on non dated light wood, which is what we have.
