Pink interiors have become increasingly fashionable in the last decade, with pink bedrooms no longer limited to little girls' rooms.

Is pink a good colour for a bedroom?

Many people express their love for pink but face resistance from their partners when it comes to incorporating it into their home. If this sounds familiar, starting with a pink bedroom can be a great compromise. Begin with soft, almost neutral pinks and gradually introduce more vibrant shades over time.

Pink Bedroom Ideas for Adults

Creating a pink bedroom does not necessarily mean painting the walls pink. You can explore different shades for the walls, such as green, and use pink in bed headboards, soft furnishings, art, and rugs. Here are a few of my favorite pink bedroom ideas for adults.

1. Pink Walls

When most people think of pink bedrooms, they envision bright or baby pinks typically associated with little girls' rooms. However, there is a wide range of pink shades to choose from that can create a more neutral and calming backdrop for your bedroom. When selecting paint for a pink bedroom, consider the amount of natural light the room receives and its direction.

North-facing rooms tend to be dark and cold, so opt for paints with a hint of yellow to warm them up. South-facing rooms can be overly bright, so choose paints with cooler, neutral tones containing hints of grey and blues. Muted rose tones like Farrow & Ball's Sulking Room Pink are extremely popular for bedrooms. They can provide a dramatic backdrop that pairs well with stronger colors like royal blue and deep burgundies.

Plaster and salmon pinks are perfect for north-facing rooms. They warm up the space without making it too dark and moody. Salmon pinks also give the room a soft glow and pair well with golds, greens, and blues. For those who are a bit nervous about using pink in the bedroom but would like to gradually introduce it, neutral pink paints that offer just a slight blush of color are ideal. They allow for the addition of patterned bedding or pops of brighter colors in curtains and soft furnishings.

What color goes with pink on a bedroom wall?

The choice of complementary colors depends on the design you want to implement. For a bright and eclectic look, consider using teal greens and mustard in bedding and soft furnishings. If you want the pink walls to take center stage, keep the rest of the room neutral with off-white bedding, jute rugs, and wooden furniture.

2. Pink Two-Color Combination for Walls

If you're not keen on painting your entire bedroom pink, why not consider a stylish two-tone wall? This modern take on the traditional dado rail of period properties can add freshness and contemporary flair to your space. By creating a divide along a wall and matching two colors, you can add depth to the room without overwhelming it. You can choose to paint a two-color combination using different shades of pink, or combine off-whites, greens, or deep reds with your favorite pink hue.

For a daring look, you can even carry the top color over to your ceiling, creating a cocoon-like effect that makes the room feel warm and cozy.

3. Pink Beds and Headboards

One of the best ways to create a pink bedroom is by incorporating a pink bed or headboard. Velvet beds, in particular, add a touch of luxury to any bedroom, and opting for a pink shade adds a feminine touch without overwhelming the space.

While velvet is a popular choice for pink beds and headboards, you can also find them in brushed cotton or boucle. With the bed taking center stage in your pink bedroom, keeping the decor around it neutral allows the pink to stand out.

If you're looking to add a touch of pink to your bedroom without fully committing to a pink-themed room, consider investing in pink bedside tables, a pink dressing table, or matching pink stools. These smaller pieces of furniture can provide a pop of color without overwhelming the space.

Lastly, don't forget about pink bedding and soft furnishings. They offer a cost-effective way to create a pink bedroom. There is a plethora of pink bedding and soft furnishing options available, allowing you to choose the perfect shades and patterns to suit your style.

Pink bedding can easily complement various room styles. It can be the star of the show in neutral rooms or match well with vibrant wallpapers and paints.

10. Pink Ceilings

Have you ever considered painting your ceiling pink? If you adore pink as much as I do, waking up to a pink ceiling might create a delightful ambiance in your bedroom. If you have a dado rail, you can use it as a natural dividing line and paint the upper section pink, covering the entire ceiling. If you don't have a dado rail, consider painting your ceiling a different color and creating an interesting color block contrast.

Pink can add a unique touch to your bedroom without being overpowering. By selecting the right shade and combining it with a complementary color, you can create a beautiful and inviting pink bedroom.


Pink is a versatile and pretty color that can transform any bedroom into a soothing or vibrant sanctuary. From painting the walls pink to incorporating pink furniture, bedding, and soft furnishings, there are numerous ways to bring this color into your bedroom. Whether you prefer a bold and eclectic style or a soft and calming ambiance, pink offers endless possibilities for creating your dream bedroom.
