I'm moving into a room that's been freshly painted...in pastel baby pink.  It's even a cold pink, and I have no idea what to do with it.  I go for bold or exotic designs over elegant and lady-like, so I'm NOT looking for Victorian tea party or white-on-pink designs.  My bedspread back home was red, orange, and black paisley.  I had black curtains, and a big red bookshelf and I'd put gold paper on the back of it.  In this new room, I have a choice for bedspread and curtains, and possibly a rug, and then whatever I can put on the walls.  My closet, curtain rod, and desk are a light wood, pine? oak? not sure, but definitely not cherry.  I can't do any painting of the walls or furniture, and I want to work with the pink instead of just trying to force something on it.  Themes in my brain cloud are cozy, warm tones, boudoir, Arabian nights, Moulin Rouge, bohemian.

Personally I really love pink, black and shades of grey.

Perhaps you could try looking over at http://www.colourlovers.com and finding a palette with the color in it. Then you could use that palette to decorate your room.

I'm partial to pink, maroon and brown as a triad. Maroon seems to bridge pink and brown rather nicely.

I have seen a living room done with pink, cognac and brown - it was very cozy. The carpet was a colour called latte and truly was the colour of a double shot latte. The timber in the room was a combo of light pine (the legs of the cognac couch and chairs) and walnut (tv stand, book cases, coffee table).

See decorating at www.bhg.com/ for ideas on combinations with pink.

If you're looking for exotic, how about adding some turquoise and gold for a quite indian theme?

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
