Answered
I'm beginning to help my mom redecorate her 1 bedroom condo living/dining room area in light pink and dusty rose, and pine or emerald green. Does anyone have this color combo? If so, could you post pictures?

    I do not, but if I may offer a little bit of advice....I would cut some of that color with some white or cream. The colors you mention might have a tendency to look a little dated after a while, especially in the winter months when sunlight is not as strong. Happy decorating!

    Use the light pink for walls cream or white for trim and accent with various pattern pillows of the other colors..Love to see it when it is done.. I plan on using those colors in my kitchen due to light mauve laminate counter tops I just don't have money to replace.. and don't worry if it doesn't look modern, as long as she is happy and it is a cosy place for her.. good luck

      @Janet Pizaro I looked at the website and saw descriptions of all the types of paint and stain they make, which paint to use for which surface, etc, but did not see info about colors that compliment each other.

    Pink and green may be dated, but my daughter likes it in her room and when my mom bought a very affordable green couch, and she hates green, she started to think about how she could live with the couch, so she started looking at pink for accessories.

    I personally love blue with green - with white or sand color, you could have a nice beachy look. I know that wasn't your question. Just throwing it out there. Anyway, go with what you love and don't worry about what others like.

    I guess I think of pink and green as dated...but I can see cream walls with your mom's green sofa. I had a green sectional one time and found it easy to accessorize. Cream walls, black or green or peach pillows. Does she have carpeting? Hardwood or laminate flooring would look nice in her condol.
