Room for Color

Did you follow this year's Room for Color contest at Apartment Therapy?  I did, and I must admit that my favorite rooms all featured pink in one way or another.  Here's a peak at my favorites. 

I love this bed, bench and bedding.  The color scheme of white, gray, pink and gold is stunning.  I also love the edginess added by the cowboy boots.  I'd like to see a more sophisticated and gentler piece of art behind the bed, though.  It's just my humble opinion, but I think spin art looks a little juvenile.  Rohde's Energetic & Inspiring Room.

As you know, I'm not a fan of animal hide rugs, but I do love the use of color in this room.  I especially adore the large red art on the pink wall.  Monique's Design Detours Room.

This room needs a little work, but is well on its way to being glamorous and sophisticated.  This is one of my current favorite color schemes:  hot pink, gray and silver.  I'd love to see larger artwork behind the sofa, and the styling with the tray is a bit odd, but gorgeous colors nonetheless.  Lisa's Pink Glam Room.

I love this room, although it could use a little editing.  I'm not a big fan of wallpaper.  Even though it's popular right now, I'm not sold.  I know I'd get bored of it quickly.  I do love the pale blue sofa with hot pink pillows, and the hot pink head dress on the wall.  Also love that hanging light.  All in all, a beautifully fresh room.  Dagny's Energetic Mix.   The following room is a bonus.  It was not part of the contest, but is a beautiful use of color.

Love hot pink and blue together.  Love the blue lamps!

Love the blue dresser and the texture added with the Moroccan wedding blanket rug.  I'm keeping this room in my inspiration file in case I ever move into a studio apartment again.  Leila & Buff's Beautiful Beach Abode.

I just wanted to say hi, as you posted on my tumblr, and we like a lot of the same rooms! Personally I dream of a '50s pink tiled bathroom. Also, I would have voted for the last room if it was in the contest.

Did you enter or consider entering the contest?

Hi Christine, I'd love a 50s pink bathroom! I considered entering and I actually did enter a few years ago. I think the people that tend to win have a lot more money than I do. Plus, I adore pink and for some reason it's always controversial.
