Let’s start off with a classic. In this bedroom designed by Studio DB, the plush gray carpet corresponds with the velvet headboard while a mirrored nightstand adds some glitz. The warmth of the light pink sheets and gold framed mirror finish things off with just a touch of contrast.
If you love pink and gray but don’t want it too look too precious or traditional, take notes. The curves of this headboard along with the warm, deep colors ground the room and fill it with an edgy intensity. Design firm Arent & Pyke softened up the room with pink linens and an unexpected edge with cool blue-gray walls.
When decorating an all-white space, keep things interesting by mixing different textures with splashes of muted neutrals, like pink and gray. Here, Leanne Ford painted the exposed brick wall and opted for a stone-effect bed frame.
This bedroom designed by Tamsin Johnson is an example of how to use splashes of gray and pink without making them the focal points. The jute rug, rattan settee, gilt framed art, and green tones throughout the space make the hot pink and pale gray touches feel more balanced and unique.
Paired with sky blue, baby pink and gray feel whimsical yet traditional. To make the room feel even softer, Studio DB used a grasscloth wallpaper.
Here’s another bedroom that proves the magic of fabric and texture-rich walls. Here, the griege fabric panels make everything feel more inviting and cozy while the pink marble nightstand, light fixture, and bed assert a modern mood.
With just a touch of gray in it, this powdery pink paint color pairs beautifully with a variety of neutrals. In this space designed by Arent & Pyke, the charcoal fabric accent of the headboard and black and smoked gray sconce are brightened up by crisp white linens and warmed up by the light wood furniture. And even though it’s bright and bold, it isn’t overly sugary.
Each item is carefully chosen to work within the small space, all the while squeezing in tons of pink and gray personality. For example, the narrow bedroom table fits into the little nook perfectly, and since it’s on the slimmer side, they made sure the two-tiered table on the other side of the bed offered extra surface space. Then, they went vertical with a gallery wall to draw the eye up.
The beauty of shabby chic decorating is its laidback, effortless approach, like using an old pitcher as a vase and simply placing it on the floor to imitate the still life hung above. The cool, pale icy blue tones give it a cloud-like atmosphere while the rose motif provides it an easy romance.
Maltsev Design went with a dusty rose and pale pink color scheme, introducing intrigue through textural contrast, like the glossy side table, iridescent throw pillow, fluffy duvet, and rich carpeting. There’s also some subtle pattern play to keep things interesting without veering away from the monochromatic color scheme.
Though pink and gray may have a reputation as sweet, they can also be edgy and bold. Case in point? Fiona Lynch Studio lights up this pink and gray bedroom with a cheeky neon sign.
When your bedroom is looking lackluster, add greenery! It instantly livens up a space and looks great with pink and gray. The folding screen and fabric ottoman surrounded by plants create so much dimension, and the luxe green throw blanket, blush pink linens, and upholstered headboard make the bedroom super cozy.
Tamsin Johnson customized a window seat bench and adorned it muted pink, gray, and purple throw pillows. Though subtle, they pop in the neutral bedroom while the mirror makes it feel much more spacious.
So many shades of pink and gray in the master bedroom in designer Janie Molster’s home.

Keep the rest of the decor simple and neutral, so the room feels like a relaxed retreat. Emily Henderson brought in a nature-inspired accents and traditional staples to round out the space.
To warm up the cool gray bench and crisp white bedding Chloe Warner of Redmond Aldrich Design opted for a backdrop of beige with peach undertones on the wall.
The chalkiness of the gray painted walls contributes the lived-in, bohemian environment while also cooling it off the wooden bed frame, beige carpet, brass sconce, and blush linen duvet.
In this master bedroom designed by Charlotte Lucas, layers of rich textures and soft colors contrast with high-impact wall art. The abstract, watercolor-inspired wallpaper marries the two themes and brings the whole space to life.
