What would you do if you knew that you could not fail? Many of us would do things that we have always wanted to do! We would venture out of our comfort zone and try something different — we can try a crazy new hair color, sign up for cooking classes, or maybe start our own business!

For those of us who are about to build, renovate, or decorate our homes, we may even seriously consider surprising colors and patterns. If you are ready to banish boring wall hues and commonly seen prints, you should draw inspiration from this 36sqm unit designed by interior designer Van Acuna Solana!

Here are the 5 things that we learned from this pretty-in-pink bachelorette pad: 

Celebrate your favorite color

If you live alone or if you have the blessing of the people that you live with, you may want to define your personal space with the color of your choice. You can use baby pink, sunny yellow, light green, and pretty much whatever shade your heart desires.

Define a corner with wallpaper

Many homeowners don't want to use wallpaper because they think that it is expensive and difficult to maintain. If you are afraid of (wallpaper) commitment, you may want to use wallpaper for only one of your walls. 

For this 36sqm unit, the interior designer paired the pink walls with a single accent wall covered in black-and-white wallpaper with peacock feather prints. 

Create a cafe-inspired corner

Since the homeowner wanted a place that would remind her of Paris, the interior designer turned a bare space into a cozy cafe-style dining area.

For a similar look, you can choose a white wall mirror that looks like a French window and Thonet-inspired chairs! 

Use different patterns in similar colors

We have said it once and we will say it again: you should always consider using different prints in similar colors for an eclectic feel.

For this bedroom, the interior designer used geometric wallpaper and toile de jouy bedsheets in black and white.

Choose glass cabinet doors

To update the look of your bedroom, you can also replace solid cabinet doors with clear glass panels! Paint the cabinet doors pink and the inner surfaces white for a charming appeal.
