Pink and grey living room ideas

Once the preserve of girls’ bedrooms, pink is now widely accepted as a colour that can be used in any room in the home. Pale and dusky pinks, especially, have an air of grown-up sophistication about them, and when offset with grey, the result is a winning colour combination that is calm, soothing and elegant.

There are plenty of ways to achieve a pink and grey living room; you can create a two-tone effect use equal measures of both colour, use grey as a springboard for pink accessories or paint a pink feature wall. Read on for a selection of inspiring pink and grey living room ideas

Pink and grey living room ideas

Try Blush pink with muted grey accents 

There’s a whole colour spectrum of pink to choose from, with the very palest being practically a neutral that can used as liberally as any other. Paint your walls in a soft blush pink like Jasmine Shimmer, with muted grey accents in alcoves and adjoining walls. Add extra pink and grey accessories like artwork, cushions and rugs for a pared-back, minimalist blush pink and grey living room.

Opt for pink walls and accessorise with grey furniture 

There’s a whole colour spectrum of pink to choose from, with the very palest being practically a neutral that can used as liberally as any other.

Try a two-tone wall effect for added comfort

Using colour to horizontally divide your walls is a clever way to create a feeling of cosiness in your living room, especially in rooms with high ceilings. Start with a pale, neutral pink like Blossom White at the top, and add a grey with hints of green like Garden Grey at the bottom. Paint in a dado rail in Caramel Cream as a way of introducing a third, complementary colour to your scheme. 

Add natural materials for a bohemian look

Like above, we’re going for a two-tone effect here, this time flipped with a dusky pink with hints of terracotta on the bottom and a very pale lime green on the top. Introduce rustic and bohemian accessories in natural materials for a laid-back look – think wooden plant stands, wicker baskets and terracotta pots. Add tasselled cushions and leafy green plants and you have a pink and grey living room that’ll transport you to tropical climes.

Paint in an interesting grey feature 

Paint your walls in two complementary shades of pink, like the beautiful, warm Heart Wood, and the pale, dusky Satin Bow. Then take a pale grey like Chic Shadow and paint in a dividing line with a difference. Instead of stopping the line when you reach an obstacle, like a window or doorframe, continue the line so that it frames these obstacles. You’ll end up with one continuous grey line running around the entire room: a unique and interesting feature that’ll be the talking point of your living room. 

How to choose the right pink and grey paint

When it comes to choosing the best shades of pink and grey paint for your living room, there are several factors to consider. The size of the space and how bright it is will influence how light or dark you go, as smaller rooms are generally suited to lighter shades while larger rooms with lots of natural light can handle richer and darker tones. The shades you choose will also depend on personal taste and the feel you want to create in your living room: do you want a Scandi-inspired, minimalist vibe, a laid-back Mediterranean feel or a bright and vibrant look that makes it feel like summer year-round?
