We know what you're thinking. Suggesting pink for a kids' bedroom is a lot like "Florals for spring? Groundbreaking." But hear us out! There are so many ways to bring pink into your little one's space besides simply painting the walls. With a dash of creativity and some out-of-the-box thinking, you can bring this playful, happy hue into your design plan in a way that will stand the test of the time. We've scoured the web to find 11 of the sweetest pink kids' bedroom ideas around — from statement window treatments to wallpaper to metallic details, you'll never consider a blush sanctuary boring again.

1. Create garden vibes with floral wall decals.

Not only does Peonies + Twine use pink and gray in this kid's bedroom idea, but she also ups the ante with whimsical floral wall decals. To recreate the dual-toned look, place decals against a medium gray wall, offset with a pink wall, and then throw in some white, vintage furniture for a charming Rachel Ashwell-inspired effect.

2. Use woven baskets for warmth.

Woven baskets in this pink kid's bedroom designed by Shea from Studio McGee add warmth and a hint of sophistication, thanks to an added dose of texture. To bring this look into your own home, choose a soft, muted shade of pink for a space that feels as calming and serene as it does stylish.

3. Add a pop of color to the ceiling.

If painting your whole room pink still feels a little too bold for you, take notes from this rosy boudoir designed by Shea from Studio McGee and focus on creating a statement ceiling instead. Tongue and groove paneling adds an extra special detail, creating visual interest in a sea of white.

4. Accent with gold.

Gold accents provide the perfect touch of warmth and glamour to this pink kid's bedroom idea, designed by Melanie from Rave Interior Design. Try pattern mixing on the walls, bedding, and seating, but be sure to keep the tones similar to avoid an overly busy design. And don't forget to add the pièce de résistance: a midcentury-esque chandelier in the center of the room.

5. Opt for a peachy shade of pink.

This peachy tone from Bow in the Sky feels more sophisticated than pure pink but still plenty playful thanks to pastel-colored details and accents. Try hanging homemade art with washi tape and string to create a casual, laid-back vibe.

6. Bring in pink textiles.

Bedding is the perfect place to add color and pattern, since it's easy and fairly inexpensive to swap out as your little ones get older, or even as the seasons change. This mauve-colored bedding from Lewis feels youthful and sweet but still sophisticated enough to blend seamlessly with the rest of your home.

7. Style with a vintage-inspired area rug.

The vintage-inspired area rug from this pink kid's bedroom idea by Monika Hibbs is a perfectly dynamic addition. Not only does it ground the space against the more whimsical floral wallpaper, but it can be made to feel more pink, taupe, or peach depending on the colors it's paired with. To bring out the warm blush tones, pair with crisp white and rattan details.

8. Use kilim pillow covers to add depth.

Kilim pillow covers are a seamless complement to white walls and pink details in this drool-worthy kids' bedroom idea, thanks to added texture and warm tones. To snag the look from Beijos Events, pair a Moroccan-style wedding blanket with mauve bedding along with rattan and cane accents.

9. Add copper details.

Copper is basically the metallic version of pink, so it comes as no surprise that it works seamlessly in this kid's bedroom idea from Project Nursery. Pair with textured, white bedding for contrast against the smooth and sleek metal, and accent with floral shams for a touch of whimsy.

10. Pair pink with black for contrast.

Black accents have the ability to make any space feel more modern and polished. Lindsay Weber's home tour on The Everymom is the perfect example of a pink kids' bedroom idea grounded by black and neutrals. To recreate Lindsay's eclectic style, pair pink striped bedding with pink floral wallpaper for a look that feels balanced yet adventurous.

11. Elevate the space with Roman shades.

Custom Roman shades can make any room feel more polished and complete, and that's certainly the case in this kid's bedroom idea designed by Sissy + Marley. To emphasize a Scandi-chic playful vibe, pair with minimalist furniture and accents that feel both youthful and refined.
