Pink is so much more than bubblegum! From youthful and exciting to sweetly sophisticated and soothing, pink can create many different moods depending on the shade.

There are lots of recommendations in decorating magazines, websites, and blogs - just google "working with pink in home decor" and I found enough to write a book on the subject. The shade(s) of pink you choose as well as the complementary colors are the critical components of how a room actually works and thought the following guidance useful (source: Home Made Simple website - also see marthastewart.com):
Mint green and other pastel accents like baby blue make a light pink palette feel cheerful and sweet.
Chocolate brown adds a deliciously fresh spin to a variety of pink shades from raspberry to cool mauve. The combination creates a warm feeling that makes a space feel comforting and grounded.
Metallic shades like bronze, brass, silvery gray and gold can make a deep pink room feel luxurious and add a bit of old-Hollywood glamour.
White or black provide the perfect backdrop for a bright pink palette. White makes a space feel crisp and feminine, while black adds a classy, modern look.
