Color Combos: Pink, Black, and Green

By Christa Terry

I find myself inspired by this shot of designer Mary McDonald’s Hollywood guesthouse den. Pairing pink and black with green tones down the overwhelming girliness that is a characteristic of pink and black alone so your space doesn’t end up looking like a tween girl’s wardrobe.

Of course, a brighter iteration of this palette could easily work in a tween girl’s bedroom, as you can see.

    FYI the “art” you see above is so easyto do for a kids’ room – a canvas or even a gessoed cardboard board, craft paper circles, mod podge, and that’s it. It’s a project I’ve seen going around the blogosphere.
