Decorating a Cottage in Pink and Green


Decorating rooms and homes in pink and green is so popular that it’s fun to look at this color combination in a specific setting.  Pink and green are the perfect color choices for decorating a cottage.

Adding floral throw pillows to seating on the front porch welcomes visitors and introduces the cottage theme.  Inside, more floral motifs in a variety of pinks and green are showcased in window treatments, upholstery, and even an area rug.  Light streaming in from the window and fresh cut flowers celebrate the spring and summer seasons.


Using bark cloth and vintage linens in floral patterns of pink and green in the kitchen lends cohesiveness to the color scheme.  Choosing one type of flower, for example roses, adds to the charm and quaintness of cottage decor.


Choosing only one floral pattern to use in a bedroom is another way to effectively decorate a small space.  Window treatments, headboard, and a prominently placed pillow show careful thought in  fabric choices as well as paint in a bedroom.


Adding just a few pink accents to an all-white powder room is just the right balance of decorative elements.


Invite friends to join you for cake and lemonade on a sunny porch where even the frosting and beverage celebrate pink and green.


Before the summer sun gets too hot, enjoy balmy days in and around rooms of pink and green.  What a charming combination of colors, and especially in a cottage setting.
