Do you love the color pink? I love pink, and while I’m often drawn to shades of blue and green when decorating our home, I always love to inject a healthy dose of pink! I’m most drawn to more vibrant hot pinks and deep rose, but I also love subtle blushes and baby pinks as well. 

Pink is certainly taking center stage this week with the release of the long-anticipated Barbie movie. The color pink has received a lot of love all summer long in both fashion and home decor. Even my 15-year-old daughter has recently developed a love of pink — much to her mother’s delight!

So, today I thought it would be fun to have a little fun and talk about gorgeous ways to inject a little pink into your home decor!

Adding touches of pink to your home creates a sense of playful charm and a touch of whimsy.  From subtle blush accents to bold hot pink statements, pink just makes a room more fun!

Pretty Shades of Pink Paint Colors for Your Walls:

Of course, we have to begin the discussion with pink wall colors, and I’m sharing some of my favorite pink hues below!

Use a super soft pink in a muted blush or faint pastel on the walls of a room for a peaceful, subtle, and sophisticated look. To maintain an elegant look, and keep your pink walls from feeling too “bubblegum pink” stick with a faint shade of pink or one that has a bit of a brown undertone.

I would reserve brighter shades of pink for focal accent walls or painted pieces of accent furniture in your room. As an accent color, pink complements various design styles, from fresh traditional to modern. You can use deeper shades of pink on accent spaces such as the backs of built-in bookshelves or on a fun piece of painted accent furniture, but the soft subtle pinks below are perfect for walls.

Another beautiful way to incorporate pink in a room is with a pretty floral wallpaper. Whether you cover the entire room, or just an accent wall, a pretty pink print can make a lovely statement on your walls!

You can add lots of personality and charm to your walls with playful pink wall art including floral canvases or pretty pink abstract prints.  

My favorite way to bring pink into a room is with flowers!  Whether it’s a vibrant floral bouquet or soft pastel blooms, pink flowers bring life and freshness to any room.

And, for a super quick and easy update, swap out a few throw pillows on your sofa or bed for pink accent pillows! The possibilities are endless!

You can also add a little pink to your room with a classic pink area rug. It’s a fun way to add warmth and texture to your floors. 

Add various shades of pink decor accessories to bookshelves, tabletops, and mantels.

Make a Playful Statement with Pink Furnishings around Your Home:

Don’t be afraid to go bold with larger statement pieces in pink. Painted pink accent tables or bookshelves are another great way to incorporate this fun color. An upholstered pink chair gracefully placed in your living room, creates a bold and playful statement!

These pink furnishings serve as functional art pieces, elevating your design style to a whole new level of fabulous.

Create a Grand Entrance with Pink:

Welcome your guests in style with a pop of pink and set a playful tone for your fresh traditional home. A pale pink front door exudes charm and warmth, leaving your guests with an unforgettable first impression. This soft pastel pink front door designed by Camilia Home is the perfect example!

​If a pink door isn’t quite your style, add a pink floral wreath, or flank your front door with planters of pink blooms.

No matter your design style — cottage, vintage, modern, classic, or contemporary — incorporating the color pink in your home is a lovely way to create a charming and refined look.
