Grey is a hugely popular choice in interiors – and it’s easy to see its appeal. As a cooler, alternative neutral, it’s versatile and can be used anywhere in the home.


But increasingly, many of us are looking to bring in other pops of colour alongside grey to add warmth and life to our spaces. That’s where pink comes in.


Pink and grey is a classic partnership perfect for stylish and relaxing bedrooms. Muted pink and grey tones create soft and inviting spaces, while bolder lead greys and hot pinks can bring a sophisticated yet playful edge to any home.


We’ve compiled some truly inspiring pink and grey bedrooms, from incredible paint hacks to clever accessorising. So, whether you’re looking to revamp your whole space or introduce colour through soft furnishings, there’s something for you.


1. Add an Accent Chair

Adding a versatile accent chair to your bedroom is a great way to make the most of your space – and it can also enhance your colour scheme. Choose a pink chair to pop against grey walls and dress it with some comfy, textured cushions.


Opt for wooden legs for a soft and natural look, or choose brass to bring a touch of glamour to your space.


2. Create a Zen Space With Muted Tones

Pale pink and grey tones are perfect for creating a calming environment. Start with a light French grey as a base on your walls, and add a mix of muted pinks and greys through your curtains, rugs, cushions and throws.


It will create just the right amount of warmth for a cosy and serene bedroom.


3. Make Your Bed The Focal Point

A luxurious pink bed is guaranteed to create a striking focal point in your bedroom. This beautiful space positions the bed at the centre of the room, ensuring it’s the first thing you see.


Pair your pink bed with pale grey walls and crisp white bed linen for contrast.


4. Add Colour With Shutters

Shutters offer unrivalled style, character and privacy – so it’s no wonder they’re such a popular choice for bedrooms. If you’re looking for a new way to dress your windows, consider injecting a pop of colour with shutters.


I love how these rose-pink solid shutters enhance this bedroom’s colour pallet and frame the views outside. But if you’re not brave enough for pink shutters, you can still create an eye-catching look with deep grey against pale pink walls.


5. Warm Up a Cool Space With Pink Bedding

Transform a cool grey bedroom by changing up your bedding. This stunning bedroom is contemporary and cool, yet the pink bedding creates a cosy and inviting vibe.


Whether you opt for plain or patterned, pink sheets help to bring warmth and interest to a bedroom. Experimenting with fabrics is a great way to refresh your space because it’s not permanent – you can change your style as often as you change your sheets!


6. Create Contrast With a Half-Wall of Panelling

This contemporary, white bedroom comes alive with contrasting grey panelling and pink accents, resulting in a chic, stylish space.


Complement white walls with a half-wall of panelling on your main bedroom wall to add character and depth. Choose a muted tone of dusky pink or dove grey to bring warmth, or opt for lead grey for a cool and modern finish.


7. Get Clever With Paint

If you’re worried a pink bedroom may be too overpowering for your tastes, get clever with your paint. This gorgeous, modern space uses pale pink up to picture rail height, leaving the area above white, adding to the sense of space.


Painting the picture rail off-black is a fantastic touch, too, and gives the bedroom a contemporary edge. Complement pink walls with mid or deep grey furniture and accessories to create contrast and ground the pink tones.


8. Paint Your Woodwork

If you’ve opted for pink walls in your bedroom, try complementing them with grey doors, architraves and skirting boards.


The warm, pastel pink walls make this bedroom a truly soothing space, yet the addition of grey-painted woodwork prevents it from looking sickly. Choose simple, white bed linen to create contrast and ensure the room doesn’t look too busy.


9. Paint Your Ceiling

Think beyond four walls if you’re looking to make a big impact with your colour scheme. It’s not often I describe a room as delicious – but with a rose-pink ceiling contrasting against concrete grey walls, this bedroom is the definition of delicious.


Painting your ceiling isn’t for the faint-hearted, but this space proves that the gamble can really pay off. Paint above your picture rail (or the upper quarter of your walls) and ceiling a mid-dusky pink and pair it with pale grey walls.


Introduce different textures to your space to create depth – think about grey velvet, linen, concrete accessories and wooden elements.


10. Introduce Black Accents

Want to introduce pink to your bedroom but worried it’ll look too sweet? Try balancing your pink colour scheme with grey soft furnishings and black accents.


The black door and window frames and accessories help to give this space a contemporary and grown-up feel. Meanwhile, the pastel, peachy pink accent wall provides just the right amount of warmth for a serene and inviting bedroom.


11. Add Another Colour

If you’re worried a pink and grey scheme could look a little flat for your space, why not liven things up with a third colour?


Deep blue looks fantastic against paler pink and grey tones – try bringing in subtle pops of blue through your cushions or patterned bedding.


Green is another popular accent colour for grey and pink schemes – you can introduce it through furnishings and houseplants to create contrast next to pink or grey walls.


12. Complement Grey and Pink With Natural Wood

Natural, dark wood panels, pink and grey make a dream team in this modern bedroom. Wood is excellent for creating a relaxed and warm vibe in any space – and the contemporary pink, grey and black accents set it off beautifully.


For a stylish finish in your bedroom, install some natural wood vertical slat panels behind your bed – it will help extend the look of a headboard and turn your bed into the centrepiece.


Choose a grey fabric bed and dress it with pink and black cushions and throws for a modern and timeless finish.


13. Try Creative Colour Blocking

Create a pink and grey bedroom with a difference by colour blocking your main bedroom wall. This modern space exudes fun and nods to Art Deco styling with its smooth lines and gold accents.


For maximum effect, complement pink and grey paint with a third accent colour – consider a deep blue, black or dark green.


14. Install Traditional Panelling

Pink and grey are a classic combination for a sophisticated and elegant space. And how better to enhance this classy pairing than with traditional panelling? You can recreate this beautiful look by fixing simple decorative mouldings to your main bedroom wall.


Use the whole wall for maximum effect and choose a paint colour to contrast with your bed.


15. Layer Soft Furnishings

Create a soft and cosy retreat by layering lots of fabrics and colours in your bedroom. Use grey and pink as your base colours, and introduce several different tones through cushions and blankets to add depth.


This gorgeous space uses mustard, deep green and burgundy to contrast against the blush pink and pale grey tones, resulting in a visually exciting yet relaxing space.


16. Introduce Pattern

Instead of flat colours, introduce pattern to your space by using wallpaper. Floral prints work really well in grey and pink tones – and it’s a great way to make a beautiful feature.


Wallpaper the wall behind your bed and pair it with simple, pale grey walls. Bring in touches of pink through your furniture and accessories to complete the look.


17. Create Contrast

Using different tones of grey can be really effective. Add dark grey to your bedroom to create contrast against pale grey and pink tones. Get the look by adding one large, deep grey piece of furniture like a bed or dressing table.


This will create an eye-catching feature while complementing the overall scheme.


18. Choose Statement Furniture

Pink and grey can be soft and subtle – but you can go bold and have loads of fun with them, too. Choose colourful, statement pieces of furniture for your space to create a bedroom that packs a punch.


This stunning pink chaise chair provides the perfect spot to relax and unwind, while an elegant grey and gold wardrobe enhances the feeling of luxury.


19. Go Bold

Have fun with your décor by adding bold magenta to a dark grey room. This contemporary loft space has a decidedly cool and grown-up look yet feels playful and informal thanks to its dramatic tones.


How you add the accent colour is up to you – I love this bold rug, but you could bring it in through lighting, planters, a chair, or even curtains.


20. Beautiful Boho

Create your dream boho sanctuary by adding soft pinks and greys to a white bedroom. I love how this gorgeous space layers fabrics, resulting in a stylish, textured look.


For maximum effect, use several different shades of pink and grey throughout your furnishings. Complement your colour scheme with natural wood and rattan accessories to complete your boho space.
