18 Pink Bathrooms That Are Downright Swoon-Worthy
Thanks to Pantone, pink home decor has been popping up everywhere this year, and it’s finally gaining traction in the smallest room in the house: the bathroom! Rose quartz looks chic on anything bathroom-related, like tiles, rugs, shower curtains and tubs. This pale hue is so soft and subtle — it’s basically a neutral — but pink bathrooms will definitely make you think twice about the classic all-white decor. If there was ever a color that could transform the loo into a pretty special place, it’s a pop of pastel pink. Here are 18 chic bathrooms that will show you how it’s done.
1. Half Pink: Even the celebs are embracing the pink trend, as you can see here in Nina Dobrev’s bathroom. This soft blush shade is basically nude, and looks stunning with copper and black accessories. (via My Domaine)
2. Pink Marbling: You can’t go wrong with marbling, especially when it comes in this fancy shade of coral pink. A small space like a powder room can benefit from a bright wallpaper, especially when paired with gold hardware and bold geometric floor tiles. (via Stories)
3. Rose Quartz Tiles: Amp up the drama in your bathroom by taking the tile backsplash out of the shower and onto the walls. The black border gives a fun, decidedly Parisian vibe to the space. (via Oh Happy Day)
4. Curtain Chic: If you’re not quite ready to splash out the pink paint, keep your all-white tiles and opt for accessories instead. This touch of color brings personality to any space, and there are lots of fun ways to introduce pink to your bathroom. Think: pendant light, shower curtains or even a set of towels. (via Stories)
5. Pink + Black: One way to dress up a neutral or b+w bathroom is with nothing more than a blush pink shower curtain. A pop of unexpected color can go a long way in adding personality to your shower space. (via Coco Kelley)
6. Tropical Vibes: Pink tiles were everywhere during the ’50s, so before you completely renovate those rosy shades, consider adding a fresh new color palette instead. Vibrant shades of green and a trendy palm pattern can really give that retro bathroom new life. (via Kimberly Chau/Style Me Pretty)
7. Retro Flashbacks: Adios boring shower curtains — hello, hot pink. A beautiful pink shade will make a statement in any sized bathroom and is a great way to bring color into the room without painting the walls. (via Natalie Clayman)
8. Pastel Clawfoot: A sherbet yellow tub gives this pastel pink color room a fresh look, ensuring the space doesn’t get too sugary sweet. Use a color palette app to help you pick the best hues to complement your particular shade of pink. (via House and Garden)
10. Barely Pink: Even if you add the faintest pink, you can still have a mostly white bathroom. Add the lightest of light pinks to the walls and hang a colorful piece of artwork to try this shade without too much commitment. (via Domino)
11. Pastel Subway: See ya, white subway tile — it’s all about this soft pink shade now. White walls, silver hardware and black artwork combine to create a gender neutral space that reminds us of a relaxing spa. (via Hearth Studio)
13. Coral Fish: Give the often-overlooked bathroom a splash of technicolor joy. Since you don’t spend tons of time here, it’s the perfect place to experiment with trendy colors like coral pink. Extra points if you go all out with a pink washer and dryer. (via Domino)
14. Urban Outfitters Palms Shower Curtain ($59): You can’t think pink without conjuring up images of tropical sunsets and fruity drinks. If you’re not sure the pink trend is here to stay, have a little fun with a new shower curtain that you can switch up every season.
15. Pretty Pink Vanity: This bathroom has a big personality with its popping pink vanity, confetti artwork and pretty storage. Sift through thrift stores and vintage shops to find a little cabinet that will fit into your bathroom, and then whip out the pink paint you’ve been dying to try. (via Hema)
16. Cotton Candy Glam: Part retro, part modern, the tiny hexagon tiles work well in this blush pink bathroom. The palette of pink, white and gold work together to make this bathroom totally relaxing without being boring. (via Design Sponge)
17. Book Cover Loo: Now here’s a way to incorporate pink on your walls without being too obvious. Offset a colorful wallpaper pattern with natural wood and off-white towels and accessories. (via Domino)
18. Stylish Industrial: That mirror, that rustic hardware, that wood vanity — it’s tough to pick a favorite in this room, but the rose subway tile is a total knockout. The dusty pink shade isn’t too pink, making it a definite winner. (via House Adore)

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
