When decorating with pink, good complementary colors to use include green, yellow, white, brown, grey and pale blue. Red, a darker shade of pink, is opposite of green on the color wheel, so Raymour & Flanigan Furniture suggests green as the best complementary color.

If walls are painted a pale pink or darker salmon color, mint green and creamy yellow accent pieces can be introduced to create a whimsical feel. Avocado green pairs well with a darker pink. Better Homes and Gardens suggests painting walls lemon yellow and the ceiling pale blue and introducing hot pink accents to a room. A bedroom with chocolate brown walls, pink bedding and crisp white accents creates a sophisticated look.
