Typically pink isn't a color I gravitate towards but muddy it up with some gray or beige and you get this beautiful easy-on-the-eyes blush tone.  Add in a bit of black or deep olive green for contrast and you've got the makings of a sophisticated color palette that doesn't feel the least bit juvenile.  Enjoy some of our favorite room scenes using a Blush + Black color palette below:

Oddly flexible, blush is a color that usually plays well with varying wood tones including warm walnuts and natural birch.  Below, ColourCube Interiors keeps the styling minimal but evokes a cozy feeling in this bedroom using a wood-panelled wall and blush accents.

This last image is the living room of country singer Kacey Musgraves, designed by Elsie Larson of A Beautiful Mess.  The color palette here veers more towards fun and whimsical than sophisticated and moody but it's a bright + sunny addition to the mix!
