With the upcoming arrival of our new Lil Man coming any day now, I have been surrounded with all things boys love! Blues, greens, sports, fishing, cars … you name it – I have washed and folded it! So I decided I wanted to spend a little time looking at some things that were very girly and these pink rooms were just the ticket!
Now – pink is very risky in home decor – and very polarizing. You risk it looking like a.) a Barbie Dream house, b.) a nightclub, or c.) like the room was dipped in pepto! However, in the rooms I found below – I don’t think they ended up with any of those common pitfalls.
Using pink with a bright orange across all whites here help to create some dramatic pops of color in what would otherwise be an overly sterile space. Though I would have liked to see the chandi without shades!

Here is another example of using a bright pink in a white room. I love the idea of painting a tub this color.

Bright pink, black and turquoise sounds very late 80’s or early 90’s – but this space looks adorable with these pink bookshelves.

Using a sophisticated fabric, like the tweed in these drapes, helps to elevate the style and texture of the room. It ends up feeling classically elegant, like a chic Chenille suit.

Mixing shades of pink is another great way to add some pops of color. Using the lighter shade on the walls and a darker accent shade (like in the roses) really helps to add another layer of depth into the design.
This bedroom is another great way of showcasing how to use different layers of pink to create a ton of texture and visual interest. Love the panels around the bed!
Finally – don’t be afraid to make girly spaces extra girly with a pop of color like this chair and vanity!
So there you go! Pink and girly all the way! Now I wanna know – which room is your favorite? Would you do a bright pink like that in your home? Or do you leave pink to others? Lemme know!
