If there ever was an occasion to get rid of the black, put down the beige, and consider pink, as Kay Thompson famously pronounced in Funny Face, it’s now. Pink is everywhere, from the blushing to the melancholy. Everywhere, from Cardi’s OTT fashion choices to the Met Gala style and Barbie’s blockbuster Bubblegum marketing promotional blitz. We’re not at all shocked. Color experts have predicted this pink-colored resurgence within interiors. The colors that will be popular ranging from Pantone’s effervescent Viva Magenta to Sherwin-Williams’s romantic Redend Point. As per Behr paints, the pink shades within its range saw sales rise by 32 percent year-over-year. It’s easy to comprehend pink’s popularity due to the wide range of colors its palette provides, its warmth and, of course, its inherent sense of joy. Are you still not enthralled by the thought of a brightly colored salon or foyer? It’s good to know that interior designers in the ELLE DECOR collection have proven the versatility of this color, whether decorating a changing room with a peach tint or adorning a vibrant floral design for an entrance. Check out 25 of our top pink-colored room designs.
This gorgeous home is located in France’s famous Grasse region. Lancome remodeled it to celebrate the anniversary of the most beloved flower in France, the rose. Designers responded to the request by saturating all the interior and exterior of the house in the same pink hue. We’re talking about making us blush!
Pink gets even more whimsy in the elegant Portuguese home of data-vars-ga-outbound-link=”https://www.elledecor.com/design-decorate/house-interiors/a30183407/filipa-de-abreu-lisbon-apartment/” data-vars-ga-ux-element=”Hyperlink” href=”https://www.elledecor.com/design-decorate/house-interiors/a30183407/filipa-de-abreu-lisbon-apartment/”>Filipa de Abreu. A mural hand-painted in Jaipur, India, depicts tigers and a giraffe prowling across a bubblegum backdrop.
PAINTERLY PINK LOUNGE
Based on the architect Frank Webb of the design firm White Webb, the owner of this Woodstock, New York residence, would like her office to reflect a “girl-power vibe,” from the Barbie artwork of Mark Hogancamp to the colorful wallpaper from Glamora. A display case that is backlit to show the collection of antique glassware provides even more bright rainbows.
DUSTY ROSE SITTING ROOM
The room was featured on the cover of our September 2022 issue, and it’s easy to see why, thanks to the pink-colored interior walls (Portofino made by Portola Paints) and curvaceous Vladimir Kagan sofa. The owner Mara Brock Akilcalls the room her “rose room.” Let the fun flow!
VIVID PINK PASSAGE
Fashion-conscious Insiders Michel and Sally Perrin decamp to this sherbet-colored villa on the Mexican Pacific coastline, where the open-air pathways and palapas are sprayed in the vibrant hues of raspberry. “There’s a word in French, ludique, which means whimsical, clever,” Sally says. “I think that’s what we were trying to accomplish with this house–to keep it light and playful.”
PALE PINK BEDROOM
Dreams are sweet because of this! Pared-back Scandinavian design meets fun in shoe designer Minna Parikka’s Helsinki home. The bedroom, as shown, was given a pink makeover, including the lacquered walls all the way to the bed frame and shutters. “I love creating worlds that are filled with fantasy and escape from the mundane,” she explains.
SOFT PEACH DRESSING ROOM
There’s nothing more stylish than a pink-hued room? Studio Shamshiri decorated this huge closet in pink, yet it could be more saccharine, thanks to organic shapes and custom wood storage.
If you’re trying to find ways to add a touch of pink to your home that goes beyond a coat of paint, think about the appliances you use. In the year, New York firm Le Whit came up with these playful pads in collaboration with a nearby accessory maker, “We were deliberate about the pop of ultrafeminine with the stove,” Le Whit’s principal Liza Curtiss says of the La Cornue cooktop. “It was our client’s dream stove–she’d discussed it with her family years before, actually!”
SCENE-STEALING PINK SOFA
The furniture in this collection can impact the pink paint in a room…without the obligation. The puckered pink sofa by Ligne Roset is just the right color for the New York apartment designed by Nina Barnieh-Blair.
It’s impossible to ignore this adorable Barbiecore Canadian mother-daughter house from our archives. Although it is based on a gentle blue to anchor the design, the artists who created it from Plaid Fox incorporated pops of mauve and magenta into the accessories.
MAXIMALIST PINK WALLPAPER AND BEDDING
Win and Twinning! The bedroom in the Hudson Valley home of Perifio’s Matt Bidgoli and Raphael Portet is adorned with an energizing crane-patterned wallpaper by Milton & King. A pink bed on the bed makes it even more extravagant.
The two Barbie or Salvador Dali would be swooning over this themed teen bedroom in the Houston house that Elizabeth Young designed. The walls are even filled with pink puckers!
We did two takes when we saw this roof terrace in the pink paradise of Lancome in Grasse, France. Everything–furniture, railing, and tile roof–is coated in a single bubblegum shade.
Within the New York apartment designed by Le Whit, the kitchen was not the only place to be observed through rose-colored lenses. The office in the home was decorated with pink cabinets, wallpaper in pink, and fun pink accents.
PRETTY IN PINK ENTRY
Consider introducing a splash of pink with a flowering floral wallpaper, a favorite wallpaper of ELLE Style director Parker Bowie Larson. The blue hue is a great accent.
PALE PINK EXTERIOR
The Georgian home is a stately one in every sense, but this doesn’t mean that it stays away from having fun. Antony Todd, the designer who designed the house, covered the entire structure in a light hue and incorporated an olive-green door to add color.
BALLET SLIPPER WALLS
Pink can be neutral if paired with the appropriate furnishings and other accessories. In the designer, Ramsey Lyons’s jolly (dare we call it hoppy?) living space, a soft ballet slipper shade adds the right amount of excitement to the living space, along with classic and modern silhouettes (and the adorable bunnies, of course!). “I’ve made a space that is about joy,” she says, and we couldn’t be more.
PINK PAINTED FLOOR
The color scheme in this San Francisco artist’s residence was in the spirit of the sweet pastel shades Wayne Thiebaud used in his French Pastries. Of course, we particularly love the pepto bismol-pink flooring.
Designer of textiles Lisa Corti is not one to be afraid of colors, particularly in her happy Milan house. “It’s not just that I see color combinations, I actually feel them,” she tells us. Corti’s pink bedroom makes us particularly enthralled and is painted in her preferred color, Light Pink by RAL.
PINK POWDER ROOM
Let me fly! The designer Summer Thornton’s Chicago home, joyful herons on an ethereal backdrop (a style from Gucci) bring an extra punch to the powder space.
DUSTY PINK BATHROOM
Pink bathrooms aren’t only for retro homes. In this elegant Los Angeles bungalow designed by LAUN, the look of the 1950s is modernized with plaster finishes and a tinted concrete tub.
ANTIQUE PINK BEDROOM
Farrow and Ball’s Setting Plaster paint is a popular choice for interior designers for a simple reason. In this blush-colored bedroom of a Minnesota lake home, Designer Anne McDonald used the hue on the shiplap walls and chose a matching floral fabric to adorn the headboard. All to provide “a feminine take on Scandinavian cottage-y without being grandma.”
SALMON LIVING ROOM
Fashion designer Jamie Drake calls this color a “warm, embracing, vibrant coral-y salmon.” It certainly does. It shows that his firm, Drake/Anderson, recently renovated this beautiful Long Island estate. Extra points for the carpet that is a match!
The vibrant greens, pinks, and blues are found all over this painting-inspired Parisian pad by Eric Allart. The most intriguing scheme is, without doubt, the kitchen, which includes a salmon pink paint color with contrasting white kitchen cupboards.
If you want to see how pink is portrayed in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, look at the home of late designer Lee Radziwill. The walls, windows, and table are covered in identical Milanese rose silk in her dining area.
