Pink decor ideas for calming kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms

Attention please, pink decor is on the rise – and I might be a bit biased here because I have a soft spot for this hue, but it truly is a great shade for brightening up your rooms. Did you know that in colour therapy, it is known to have calming effects? And who doesn’t want a tranquil feeling at home, right? 

Now, there are many variations of this pretty colour, from bright fuchsia and pastels to muted dusky pink, however, the latter is a go-to for designing a relaxing scheme. So, where should you start with pink decor? 

Well, one simple way to introduce this soft shade in your space is by using it as an accent colour. Think pink freestanding baths, decorative items on open kitchen shelves and textured bedding. Or why not go all out and create a cosy design using bold wallpaper, stylish tiles and colourful furniture? 

If you are a lover of this colour, then get inspired by these kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms filled with pink decor… 

Pink decor in kitchens

Firstly, why not choose pink kitchen cabinetry and trendy splashback tiles to introduce a pop of colour in your scheme? Secondly, go for dusky crockery and seating solutions so you instantly refresh your rooms, simply by using this youthful shade. Lastly, you can paint your walls in a muted shade or add a pink pendant light to complete the look.

Pink decor in bedrooms

If there’s one room you can paint pink, it’s the bedroom. As I’ve mentioned, it oozes a calming feel, which makes it ideal for a sleep space. So, mix and match plaster shades and darker tones to add dimension and interest. Be it a chic feature wall dressed in pink patterns or a statement vibrant bed frame, let your creativity run free and embrace this colour palette.

And lastly, in bathrooms

Although there are so many ways to add this colour in your ensuite or wetroom, I personally can’t pick a favourite. Top of my list would have to be a pink bath or basin – and next up are colourful furniture and statement tiles. So, play around with pink decor to design a relaxing sanctuary where you can enjoy a bubbly soak or get ready in the morning.
