Color Schemes - Gray and Pink

I'm loving the color scheme of gray and pink lately.  Yesterday I changed the colors on my website to coordinated with the colors I have on In Stitches. These are some of my favorite images using this color combo. 

I love how this room is so neutral and just has a pop of pink in the chair.


This room by Amanda Nisbet is full of fun and pink with silver accents.  That fabric makes such a big statement and I love the pink trim on the white roman shades.


The color gray is associated with being timeless and solid and silvery gray is associated with a helping hand and strong character.  Sounds like great qualities to me.


James Micheal Howard is an amazing designers whose interiors are always timeless and glamorous. 


I'm always drawn to graphic patterns and this one is fabulous.  This canopy bed is so different from any that I have made before and the sunburst mirror is unexpected.


What a glamorous office space !  Pink is the most calming color and the color of romance but the addition of the gray grass cloth brings some business to this office.  Did you notice the disco ball ?  Awesome.


Barbie and I could make some delicious cupcakes in this kitchen.  I'd cook in it with or without her !
Mr. Stitches even liked it.............. he is slightly color blind though.

I was looking for my old prom picture to post because I wore a pink and white lace dress and my date wore a silver tux with a pink bow tie.  I didn't find it but I found the prom program and the colors were desert rose and gray. Yes, it was the 80's !  
So, do you like the colors on my website ?

Love everything in that third picture down, Tammy. My favorite color combo to wear is pink and gray!

I'd have my drinking water pink if I could choose. It's always been my favorite color, but I try to make it a little more sophisticated now that I'm a grown up. Combining it with gray or silver is exactly the way to do that. I love those floral chairs too!

I love these photos and the color combination is so pretty, it really puts the rooms together! Thanks Anne

Candace@craftysisters-nc said...

Yes I do love the pink on your site, and the pattern. I also love the picture with the aged dresser, silver frame and vase of pink flowers. Very pretty!

I have to agree the colour combination works really well together, I've noticed some of these colours slipping into my wardrobe lately! Really like that office space! VERY COOL! I want a disco ball in my study now! I love the kitchen too... although I am not sure what my fiance would say if I suggested it! :) Hazel

Tammy: Finally had a minute to look at your site: YES! I like a lot. It looks great, and the whole thing is so easy and clear to navigate.
As to this post: that bed is to die for! Nice selection of images here; is it true that Mr. Stitches is slightly color blind? Does it make it easier or harder for you????

I LOVE this color scheme! Takes me back to my much beloved 1980s Huffy bike!

Karen@StrictlySimpleStyle said...

It's funny, when you mentioned pink and gray my first thought was the 80's too. I remember when I got married in the late 80's everyone was registering for mauve and gray items for their wedding gifts.

I love the new pink and gray combos you are showing here. I guess I need to keep an open mind until I have all the facts. LOL!

Gray has always been on of my favorite colors. I remember in high school home ec(very long ago) my most favorite outfit was a gray jumper with a pink blouse. Can't believe I still remember that.

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Sounds like you and your prom dress would have been right at home at my party. ;) Thanks for the visit!

I agree that the canopy bed is FABULOUS! So bold, yet somehow, the colors are soothing. Love the pink chair in the first photo. It is the perfect unexpected touch! Thanks for sharing all of the great pics!

Had to laugh, b/c when you first mentioned pink and gray, I immediately think eighties! But then after looking at all this loveliness, I see I need to readjust my attitude!

Down and Out Chic said...

yes, love the colors of your new website! so funny b/c i was just thinking about this color combo today. it's lovely.

i absolutely LOVE this color combo! these are the colors i used for my wedding!!! i convinced my husband to let me paint the bathroom grey... but unfortunately, i don't think he'd let me paint any room pink or decorate with it. i hope we have a baby girl when we decide to have kids! =)
