Design Crush: Decorating with Pink
Last Updated on January 14, 2022
Peonies are in season and let me tell you, I have pink on the brain. I use to think it was a color only for little girl rooms, but man oh man times have changed my friends. Pink can really make a statement! Who knew you could design your space with bubblegum pink walls and not have it scream I live in the Barbie Malibu Beach House? While perusing Pinterest, I started to spy pink everywhere. In the bedroom. In the living room. Even in the dining room. Seriously, it’s everywhere! Let’s take a gander, shall we?
Hits of pink here and there won’t make your space seem overly girly. A mid-century modern room can go from feeling really masculine to balanced with unexpected pops. A little high-end luxe glam.
Want pink without feeling like you walked off the set of Mean Girls?
Paint an accent wall with a daring bright pink and leave the other 3 white. Combo it with crisp white bedding and fun pillows. I pinky swear (pun intended), it won’t be too overpowering. You can also make it feel less Barbie by accenting it with black to give it balance. I imagine the girl who lives here to be a bit wild. She has a contagious laugh and tons of fabulous friends.
Don’t forget this floor flair you all went nuts over the other day. A vintage Persian or tribal rug can be a great way to start decorating with pink. The rug will help ground your room, bring your eye to the floor and make your space feel cozy and fresh. It says, “I’m sophisticated but with an edgy side and I might just like to party.”
Be it traditional seating or something more unexpected like these bar stools, pink’s a great way to keep the space feeling fresh. Very enticing.
Have you used pink in your home?

Eep! These are all sooo gorgeous. I realized this pink thing must REALLY be a freight train yesterday when I saw pink chairs in the new Pottery Barn catalog of all places! Seemed like quite a departure from their normal style but I loved it. It’s the best color ever. I want to move into every space you found right this minute!

This is fantastic!! I’m tempted to add some pink to our home now…just have to get the hubs to be onboard!
I painted below the chair rail in our dining room pink-it’s awesome!!!
Love these ideas! Have you seen the nautical navy blue and pink (with pops of gold!) home accents at Target lately? I drool every time.
