Dusty pink is a soft, dusty hue of pink that contains hints of purple. Though you may associate the hue with 80s décor, it's making a comeback and, when paired with the right colors and textures, can make your spaces look sleek and modern. Like with most pinks, you want to refrain from overusing it, otherwise you risk creating an environment that feels more like the inside of a gumball machine than a relaxing retreat. Use it lightly, or ""dust it,"" if you will, across surfaces of gray, cream or white. For instance, layer your charcoal couch with dusty pink pillows. Use deep purple accents to tickle out the hints of purple in the pink. Carry the theme throughout the room via dusty pink wall décor and an arrangement of pink flowers. Dusty pink works well in bedrooms. Offset a stark white bedspread with dusty pink accent pillows and a rug with hints of the same color. If you're head over heels for the color, go big and frame your windows in dusty pink drapes. Achieve a balance by incorporating lavender accents into the mix as well. A surprising color combination you might consider trying is dusty pink with teal. This color combination is not so much feminine as it is eclectic.
