Love pink but think it the hue is too young and girly? Think again. At the lovely La Belle Juliette hotel in Paris, designer Anne Gelbard chose a dusty pink that is still feminine but decidedly grown-up. Paired with taupe and a burst of orange (see below), it is a perfect color for a bedroom. Of course, you could choose it for a little girl or teen’s room too, but I love that it is sophisticated enough for an adult. The wall color was customized by Tollen paints for the hotel.
Inspired by the 19th-century French socialite Juliette Récamier, Gelbard designed the 34-room Left Bank hotel inspired by different phases of Juliette’s colorful life. The rooms are designed to feel like guest rooms in a chic townhouse–our kind of hotel.
If you can’t commit to pink walls, the reverse color scheme–taupey/beige walls with pops of pink is also pretty. What do you think of an upholstery panel placed like art above the bed? It’s such a great art idea that could be a cute DIY project.
