Pink is a powerful color in pop culture, with a rich history of references ranging from “Pretty in Pink” to Barbiecore to “Mean Girls.” But it’s also a surprisingly versatile color — soft and feminine or vivid and whimsical. It has endless variations, from dusty rose to coral to millennial pink. Plus, pink serves as a foundational color for a ton of styles, including Parisian glam, retro mid century modern, or sun-drenched coastal style. If you’re looking to decorate your home with pink, read on to see how you can style your pink living room, bedroom, or bathroom for a chic and graceful aesthetic.

A dash of pink

When it comes to a flexible, multipurpose space like the living room, you need a color scheme that supports its multifaceted nature. That’s why we’re all about peppering in smaller pops of pink throughout that help serve as a visual throughline uniting various elements in the living room. Add in pink decorative elements like throw pillows, blankets, ottomans, and poufs. For an even subtler touch, consider hardware with a subtly pink glow, like rose quartz coffee tables, rose gold lighting fixtures, and more. Ground the rest of your space with muted earthy tones that let the pink really shine, such as green, gray, ivory, and brown. 

Make a statement

If you’re looking for larger statement furniture, like a pink sofa, pink sectional, or even a pink accent chair, there are a few tried-and-true styling methods. Velvet upholstery is a classic choice to create a rich, plush, and sumptuous look that’s romantic and feminine. Choosing a modern curved sofa shape can enhance this feeling even further. For a more vintage take, look for more decorative flair like tassels, fringe, or tufted backs.  

Resist a matchy-matchy look

Though we love a cozy monochrome pink bedroom, it’s best to add more contrast, depth, and intentional visual hierarchy in a living room. That’s why we like a varied look, instead of a monotone look that come off a bit flat and one-dimensional. Consider mixing different hues in your pink living room, from dreamy pearlescent pink to classic blush to bold coral in your decor. Plus, this makes it easier to find pieces from different sources that can still work cohesively in one room — whether you fall in love with the perfect funky planter or vase, patterned rug, or one-of-a-kind wall art.

Sophisticated, not saccharine

Pink bedrooms are usually considered a staple for kid’s bedrooms, interpreted as high-pigment treatments in a bright princess-themed room. But there’s an easy way to elevate this vision for an adult bedroom. Incorporate hues that are softer and earthier, like dusty rose, blush, peach fuzz, and any other colors that feel more calming, soothing, and softly feminine. The idea is to hit the delicate balance of serene without looking overly sweet. For more inspiration, look to farmhouse, cottagecore, and other traditional styles that use pink in a way that suits a timeless, grown-up aesthetic.  

Melt into monochrome

As we mentioned before, monochrome pink rooms can look a bit one-dimensional. But in the case of bedrooms, this can be an intentional effect to create a delicious feeling of coziness. Smooth away the sharp corners and let everything melt away — including your troubles — with a serene and calming bedroom that’s saturated with pink, from the furniture to lighting to decor.

Embrace your softer side

For the final touch on your calming and relaxing bedroom, add plush, cocooning warmth with an ultra-layered bedscape. Pile your bed high with indulgent, hygge-inspired layers, from high-quality sheets to supportive pillows, throw blankets and quilts, and comforts and duvets on top. And don’t skimp on an upholstered headboard — it can go a long way in creating more ease and softness. Lastly, set the perfect mood with modern orb-shaped lamps that add warmth in an ethereal form. Bonus points for choosing lighting with a warm copper or gold fixture to echo and amplify this cozy atmosphere. 

Pink Bathroom Ideas

Make a splash 

Did you know bathrooms are a favorite room for a lot of interior designers to take on? It’s usually a smaller space that can go big with style — the type of style that would maybe feel overwhelming for a larger room. Whether you’re looking to energize your mornings or add some luxury to your bath time, it’s a great place to play with some out-of-the-box styles. Consider flamingo-print wallpaper for a tropical flair, or pink terrazzo that resembles confetti for a dose of eclectic whimsy. No matter what style you decide on, the goal is to create an oasis that feels worthy of a bathroom selfie. 

Retro vs. contemporary 

There is a long history behind pink bathrooms, which is why they may read retro to your eyes. The Pepto Bismol pink bathroom first became popular in the 1950’s — though pink bathrooms are experiencing a huge renaissance in new shades. Opting for pink tiles, tub, vanity, or toilet, wallpaper, or fuzzy bathmat can lean into a vintage mid century modern vibe. But if you’re looking to take it in a more contemporary direction, consider smaller touches like pink towels, soap tray, shower curtain, and other storage accessories.  

Add dramatic details 

Unless you go for bolder patterns in your wallpaper, shower curtain, or bathmat, it’s important to add in some dramatic details that can serve as visual interest in your pink bathroom. Break up the all-pink party with high-contrast elements, such as brass or black hardware for your sink and bath. Or consider adding some greenery — like philodendrons or snake plants that tolerate low-light and high-moisture environment — to add a green tinge that pairs well with pink rooms. If you have a brown thumb, there are a huge range of artificial plants that can act as the perfect piece of lush decor, sans the tedious upkeep and maintenance of a real plant.
