GIRL COLORS




What makes a room feminine?
Color is a definite element
but so is furniture style and the fabrics you use

and while nearly any color can be in a feminine room, there are certain colors that stand up on their own as definite girl colors
PINK
CORAL
LAVENDER
TIFFANY BLUE
can you think of others?

QUESTION FROM A READER:

Hello,
I am looking into painting our two story family room and foyer. I picked two colors sea froth for the foyer and soft sand for the family room - colors from Benjamin Moore. I love their aura paint. 
We have young kids so the furniture is not necessarily here to stay and will most likely change in a couple years. Anyway, I was just wondering if you had an opinion on the soft sand color, as a few people have said it is too pink for the space.

Thank you for your assistance.

Hi Catherine,
I think the two colors work well together.  They both have a pink/purple undertone and compliment each other nicely.

My question is, what does your husband think of the color choice?  It can be decidedly a feminine choice of colors, although using dark wood or leather furniture, or deeper colors - like Navy or Charcoal would keep it in the more masculine range.  If your husband doesn't mind the hints of pink and purple/lavender - then go for it!  Good luck!
