39 Pink Room Decor Ideas to Use Throughout Your Home

Whether you’re looking for a calming wall color or you want to give your front door an unexpected makeover, a beautiful shade of pink presents a great option. While pink is often associated with little girls’ bedrooms and spring pastels, the color is more versatile than you may think and works in a variety of spaces, from modern to traditional. From soft pastels that set a soothing tone to dramatic magenta and playful fuchsia shades, pink pairs just as well with neutrals as it does with saturated jewel tones.

In addition to using pink on walls, trim, and doors, incorporate it into your home decor through other elements such as bathroom tile, wallpaper, or textiles. Set it against crisp white molding for a sophisticated look or use it on upholstery to liven up a traditional breakfast nook. As you’ll see from the inspiring spaces below, pink is a tried and true timeless favorite that will never go out of style.
