Colour matchmakers – finding the perfect pink

No matter what shade of pink you’ve got your heart set on – you can get the exact colour mixed at B&Q. Whether you’re inspired by your favourite cerise jacket, or the shade of salmon on your lampshade – get any shade your heart desires mixed at your local B&Q store. Simply bring your sample into a store, place it under the scanner at the colour mixing desk and one of our store colleagues will create a bespoke colour just for you.

1. Upcycle your tired furniture

One of the easiest ways to incorporate pink into your bedroom is by adding perfect pink hues with your bedroom furniture. Of course, you could opt for pre-painted pink furniture, such as our playful Azzurro matt pink bedside tables, but why not add a touch of fun by upcycling your old furniture?

We recommend opting for a neutral light blush pink shade on the walls, then upcycling your bedside tables and chest of drawers in a warm dark blush pink hue. The lighter walls will give the appearance of an airy open space, whilst the contrasting darker tones will add a sense of depth and texture to the room.

How to upcycle furniture

Unsure where to start when it comes to upcycling your old furniture? Don’t forget to sand your furniture down before applying your new shade of paint. You’ll need sandpaper, a paint brush, a dustsheet, and a screwdriver. Find out more about how to upcycle furniture by reading our upcycling guide

2. Dreamy wall murals

Drift off into a dreamy daze by adding a stunning pink wall mural to your bedroom. The soft pink designs of cloud murals create a seriously serene bedroom space that will have you feeling zen as soon as you enter the room. If you’re looking for something a little more boho-chic, we love the laidback vibe of our pink and green botanical mural.

Not only are murals a cost-effective way to add serenity to your bedroom, but they’re also easy to install. Simply paste the mural onto the wall in the same way that you would wallpaper. Check out our guide on how to hang wallpaper to become a pasting pro.

3. Pink colour blocking ideas

Add depth to your space by playing around with colour blocking paint ideas. The opportunities are endless when it comes to colour blocking – think painting half a feature wall, contrasting with two tones of pink, or making your ceiling pop with a dash of pastel pink.

Our favourite colour blocking idea right now is ceiling colour blocking. Paint all four walls in a cool pastel pink, such as Dulux Pretty Pink, leaving a 30cm gap around the top with masking tape. Painting the gap and ceiling in a bright white will add a popping contrast whilst opening the ceiling space up, giving the illusion of more open space.

4. Colour drenching pinks

The brilliantly bold colour drenching trend has taken the world by storm this year. By creating a unity of one colour within your room, you’ll be left with an aesthetically uncluttered space that feels tranquil and calm. Plus, colour drenching is both easy and cost-effective to do. Find out more about colour drenching by reading more about the latest paint trends.

Pink is a perfect choice for colour drenching as it uses warm, inviting tones that’ll make your space effortlessly cosy. To colour drench your room, you’ll need to use various tones and shades of one colour around the room. Think pastel pink wall paint, playful pink cushions, a deep pink occasional chair, and matching pink home accessories. Top tip: paint your ceiling pink for complete colour-drenches bliss.

5. Chic pink wall panelling

Nothing looks more sophisticated than a bedroom complete with wall panelling. Wall panelling adds a chic timeless vibe to your space whilst still offering a contemporary, high-end look. With the right tools and materials, wall panelling is easy to do at home. Check out our guide on how to transform your space with wall panelling – and don’t forget to paint it pink!

Alternatively, if you’re looking for an ultra-speedy way to create wall panelling in your bedroom, opt for panelled wallpaper. Panel effect wallpaper is a quick and cost-effective option that has results that look as good as the real thing. We’re loving the look of this Superfresco Easy Blush Panel Wallpaper paired with classic cream bedroom accessories

6. Dive into deep berry pinks

It’s not just about pastel pinks this season. Deep pink shades such as crimson and cherry pink are a timelessly popular choice if you’re looking to achieve a classy, refined aesthetic in your bedroom. Our favourite shades for this season are Farrow & Ball Rectory Red and Dulux Berry Smoothie.

Top tip: using darker colours in your bedroom can make it feel smaller if it overpowers the space. We recommend painting a feature wall in a darker crimson colour whilst leaving other walls in a lighter shade to create the appearance of light and space. You can then add deep pink accessories to complement your polished bedroom aesthetic.

It’s all in the fine details when it comes to interior styling. Be sure to consider soft furnishings and bedroom accessories to finish off the look of your space. Our favourite sage green accessories to complement your perfectly pink room are this GoodHome Hiva Plain Green Cushion, Geo Double Duvet Cover Set, and a plush green occasional chair.
