It's clear that the millennial pink trend isn't going anywhere in the near future, thanks to millennials and non-millennials alike who continue to swathe their living spaces in an array of rosy hues. There's just something about the blush shade that seems to go with nearly any style of decor.
Pink tends to be a "notice me" shade, which is why it's particularly unexpected in a living room, where traditionally the color palette errs on the side of caution in more neutral hues. However, it can also work as a neutral in its own right. So whether you choose to coat your living room walls in pink paint or you want to start slow and jump on the bandwagon with a few simple accent pieces instead, these 15 pink living rooms are sure to inspire a memorable makeover.
1. Cover the room from top-to-bottom.
Pink can bring a warming quality to a room just by adding rosy furnishings that mesh flawlessly with rose gold metallics, light wood finishes, and rattan accent pieces. This living room belonging to Kate Spiers from Kate La Vie is an excellent example of this, spotlighting clean lines and natural materials, all basking in a cozy peach glow.
2. Mix in shimmering golds.
3. Start slowly with pink pillows.
If you don't want to commit to too much pink in your living room, you can always dip your toe into the water with some throw pillows and a blanket, which is what Teresa Caruso of Money Can Buy Lipstick did in her living room. The pillows match up nicely with the subtle rosy hues represented in her gallery wall.
4. Go eclectic with lively colors.
At its heart, pink is a fun color, and you can treat it as such in your living room. Brittany Watson Jepsen from The House That Lars Built created a joyful living space using cheerful artwork, playful textures, and a maize-colored futon that surprisingly goes perfectly with her pink walls.
5. Weave in vintage-inspired lighting.
Pink tends to be a color that's associated with a bygone era (picture all those pink bathrooms that were popular in the 1950s and are back again), and you can pay homage to the timelessness of the trend by pairing pinks with vintage accents. In this living room crafted by Mandi Gubler of Vintage Revivals, she hung vintage-style lighting which partners well with her pretty pink sofa.
6. Bring in pops of pink through stained glass.
7. Create a pretty pink reading nook.
8. Juxtapose pink with black elements.
9. Play with patterns.
This is an instance when pink can serve as a neutral. In Sarah Sherman Samuel's studio, a pink sofa is the star of the show and the black and white patterned wallpaper looks completely natural alongside it. The rosy hue is further displayed in the room through a charming piece of wall art showcasing a flamingo.
10. Keep it fresh in blush and white.
11. Make pink the focal point of a small living room.
Even a diminutive living room can handle a jolt of pink. In this cozy space belonging to Carmen Collins, a coat of paint livens it up without being overwhelming.
12. Think modern.
13. Accent neutral hues with pink elements.
14. Cozy it up.
Pink can also be a cozy color, one that might remind you of your childhood room or your favorite blanket. Bianca from French for Pineapple created a snuggled-in vibe in her living room with soft pink pink walls and other plush details.
