So, if you are thinking of redecorating your room with a pink twist, then keep reading for the best tips on how to do so!
Is Pink A Good Bedroom Color?
Many people shy away from the color pink when decorating because of its childish connotations, however, the color can be used elegantly and stylishly.
There are so many shades of pink to choose from, from blush to fuchsia, coral to magenta and so many more. Not only is there such a vast variety of shades, but pink is very versatile in the way it complements a lot of other colors.
Pink pairs well with white, gray, black, green, purple, orange, red, and more, all depending on the vibe you want to achieve, and the aesthetic of your choice.
Once you have decided on the color scheme of your room, whether that be pink on its own or with other colors, then you can begin to think about the decor and accessories you can use to decorate with.
Pink is one of the best colors to use to inject personality into a room, due to its many connotations and the way different shades can be used to create the vibe of a room.
If you don’t want to fully commit to an entirely pink room, a great place to start is with a feature wall. This way the color will be the center of attention without becoming overwhelming.
Paint one or two of your bedroom walls with your choice of shade of pink, and the rest painted with white or gray to provide a soft contrast.
This way, pink will be the stand-out color and is also a fantastic way to implement pink into your bedroom without the color taking over.
You can then choose decor pieces that match the chosen shade of your feature wall to tie together the overall theme of the room.
Different shades of pink will create a different feel to your room, so it is important to have decided on the feeling you want before you buy the paint.
Soft pinks such as blush or ballet pink will help create a softer cozier space, whereas hot pink and Fuchsia are better suited for a fun, loud space.
Collages have a similar effect to a feature wall but can be a little more fun. With collages, personalization is a lot easier and thus the personality of a person can be much more obvious.
A fun trend that is popular at the moment is to create a wall or space that has been covered with a collection of pictures to create a collage.
To infuse the pink theme, all the pictures used should be pink or have pink in them so that they match well and look cohesive.
Using a picture collage to decorate a room not only adds a fun feature to the room but can also be personalized. For example, you could use your own pictures to make the collage uniquely yours.
This is also a fantastic way to create a pink room if you want to avoid painting the walls, as you can always remove the pictures if you no longer want them.
It is also very inexpensive as many photo-printing apps will allow you to print pictures for your collage for free (minus postage)! A photo/picture collage is an incredible, inexpensive, and non-permanent way to decorate and add color to any room.
Another way you can implement a pink theme in your bedroom without the commitment of painting your walls is to invest in pink bedding. You can get all sorts of fun patterns and designs in pink, made from a variety of different fabrics bringing more textures into your room.
A bed is the staple item in any bedroom – it is called a ‘bed’-room after all – and so using pink bedding is an easy and simple way to create a pink space in your room. You can then use the color of the bedding to match other pieces of accessories and decor.
Plus, you don’t have to commit to the color pink if you decide later down the line that you want to change things up – just buy a new set of bedding in a different color!
This is especially great for rented properties where you are not allowed to paint the walls, but you still want to have fun and a girly pink room.
Like we’ve mentioned before, different shades of pink will give your room a different vibe, so you should always pick out bedding that will match the aesthetic that you are looking for!
As much as bedding is a large statement piece in a bedroom, so are curtains. Anything with a large fabric surface area is a great opportunity to bring in the color pink.
Find some pink curtains in the shade of your choice for another inexpensive and non-permanent way to add pink to your bedroom.
You don’t need to have painted pink walls to have a pink room, it is all about the accessories and other areas you can bring in the color.
If you enter a room with white walls but the bedding and curtains are pink, you are going to say that it has a pink and white theme.
This is exactly what we are trying to create by using pink-colored curtains bedding. Another way this method of adding color can be implemented is with a pink rug for the floor. Filling spaces with pink will help to create a cohesive, pink room.
You don’t only have to consider fabric curtains either. You can buy beaded curtains or tassel curtains in pink to hang on a wall to add color to them.
This will add more texture to your room and make it more visually interesting, as well as be a non-permanent decoration in your room.
Decor And Accessories
Arguably, one of the most important parts of any room is the decor. Decor and accessories are what really help to add personality to a room, and also what help to contribute to the overall color theme.
You can choose pink picture frames, clocks, knick-knacks, and other general decorations in shades of pink to add color to your room.
Using decorations will bring character and personality to your room, and make the room more fun and intriguing. More decor you can use are items like perfume bottles and body spray for an inexpensive way of decorating your room, which is also practical.
Cushions and pillows in the color pink are also a good way to bring in the color without making permanent changes to your house.
Lamp Shades And Lighting
You may not think it but lighting plays an incredibly huge factor in the way a room is perceived. Not only does lighting change the vibe and feel of a room, but it can also change the color. Use L.E.D strips set to pink to create a pink glow in any color bedroom.
This way your room will be completely pink without changing anything at all! Not only this but using pink lampshades will provide a pink hue to your room. It will be as though you are wearing rose-colored glasses, without the glasses!
You can even buy pink filters or pink-colored light bulbs that will help to provide the pink-toned hue to your room.
Fairy lights are another great way to make a room feel cozy, and another item you can purchase in pink and in multiple variations to match the theme of your room.
There are so many ways that you can incorporate the color pink into your bedroom without it feeling overwhelming, or without it having childish connotations!
Pink is a gorgeous and ageless color that creates a feminine feel to any room. There are so many shades that you can choose from, each of them giving your room a different feeling.
So, what are you waiting for? If you needed a sign to paint your room pink, then this is it!
