We’re finally at the end of the rainbow. Yes, I’m talking about the last of the colour inspiration series: pink! Now, technically people call the last two colours “indigo” and “violet”, but I much prefer purple and pink. When you think of rooms with a colour inspiration of pink, it’s just little girls spaces right? Well, I’m here to challenge that with some other areas where pink can shine. Let’s get to it!

Ever since Rose Quartz was (one of) Pantone’s 2016 colour of the year, light pink has been HOT. Well, more particularly, Millennial Pink. While I do have some spaces in those shades to share, I did try and find some other pinks too :) Because pink isn’t always just bubblegum!
Also, you can now check out the COMPLETE rainbow colour series! First up, the (red) post here, the orange post here, the yellow inspiration post here, the green post here, the blue inspiration here, and the purple inspiration post here. And follow my Facebook Page, where the rainbow series started.
Let’s kick off the pink colour inspiration with the first thing people think of with pink… girls’ bedrooms!
On the left, is the bedroom Emily of Small Stuff Counts designed for her daughter. The walls are painted the colour “Meet Cute”, but I especially love the deeper shade, “Pink Sky” in the closet. That’s such a neat idea! On the right, Stephanie of Casa Watkins Living did a pink and orange bedroom for her daughter. The closet is a vibrant orange, so that’s really fun too!
Once again, trim and moulding prove to look good with any colour! On the left, Veronica Solomon of Casa Vilora Interiors’ Parisienne inspired bathroom, photographed by Colleen Scott, has the loveliest thin moulding to elevate the space. On the right, the guest bedroom by Fariha of Pennie’s For a Fortune is a wall treatment dream. Everything, even the ceiling, is painted the same hue, and it really works to create a cohesive look.
What about pink for common areas? On the left, the pink living room is in the colourful home by The House That Colour Built. If you like bold pastels, this home is for you! The staircase/entry on the left by Zoë Feldman (featured in House Beautiful and photographed by Stacy Zarin Goldberg) is a great, bold way to set the tone for the rest of the house.
These two were among my favourite spaces in the Spring 2020 One Room Challenge. The pink bedroom on the left by Brenda Danso, photographed by Janelle Gokule Images, has light pink walls, a bold mural and fun rug! On the right, Kristen at Arie+Co designed a room for her tween daughter, and the walls are also light pink. But what really pops? The high contrast pink nightstands and gorgeous accent wall! I can’t pick a favourite :)
Pink in My Space(s)
We obviously must start with “The Pink Room”:
What started out as the office in our first house, later became the guest bedroom. (I did paint 3 of the walls gray, so you can sort of see that in the photo above). In eventually turned into the bold teal nursery… because kids…
Our main bathroom also started out pink (the Husband chose the colour!). We had to renovate it a couple months after moving in because it started leaking into the basement… (Then it became a bold orange).
And, since I have a few photos, my teenage bedroom was pink too!
Remember sponge painting!? I had a base of light pink, and rolled red on top. There were some bold black and white stripes too. Such a fun room :)
(Can you believe that my parents saw that room and let me paint their bedroom when they were away on vacation!?).

I hope that was enough colour inspiration with pink for you. If not, here are some links to more:
Do you have pink in your home and/or how do you feel about the colour? I’m team colour-all-the-way, so I tend to gravitate to the bolder shades. Although I don’t have any pink plans for this home, I am introducing some into our cottage. You know, whenever that gets done…
Thanks for joining the colour series :) Once again, the links are here: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, (and this is the pink one!). Oh, and if anyone is looking to incorporate pink into a non-traditional space, I’d love to help you come up with the design!
