What Color Goes with Pink? 16 Pretty Pairings to Try
Hot Pink + Indigo + Aqua
Soft Pink + Slate Gray + Gold
Pink can provide a soft, feminine complement to more masculine design elements. Here, a shapely pink chair helps distinguish a pretty vanity area from the rest of the closet, which is dominated by slate gray walls and richly stained wood floors. Gold accents on the chair frame, light fixtures, and hardware amplify the glam look.
Dusty Pink + Denim Blue + Creamy White
This boho living room playfully pairs pink and blue through a variety of textiles and art. The palette is pulled from a multi-colored shag rug that, when layered on a rich blue rug, makes a vibrant statement underfoot. Creamy white covers the walls, window treatments, and furniture to let the colorful artwork and accessories shine.
Powder Pink + Black + Metallics
The palest shades of pink can serve as neutrals with the right application. In this bathroom, powder pink walls deliver a warm blush that's offset by doses of black on the mirrors and tiled floors. A mix of polished nickel and aged brass fixtures adds a hint of sparkle to the subtle color scheme.
Blush Pink + Orange + Fuschia
This bedroom goes bold with a vibrant combination of pink and orange. Blush-pink curtains form a pretty backdrop for a tangerine sofa, where pink and orange pillows tie the color scheme together. With a multitude of patterns and accent colors, including fuchsia, turquoise, and red, the room exudes a lighthearted, boho flair.
Carnation Pink + Leafy Green + White
Look to the garden to find inspiration for what colors go with pink. This preppy dining area combines verdant green with carnation pink for a color scheme that reminds of spring blooms. Green patterned wallpaper and floral wall art form a lively setting for crisp white furniture and pink pillows.
Pale Pink + Brown + Neutrals
A pale pink sofa introduces subtle color to this neutral living room. Brown zigzag fabric appears on an accent chair and pillow to keep the pink upholstery from skewing too sweet. Ivory walls and black-and-white accessories enhance the sophisticated look.
Bubble Gum Pink + Blue-Gray + Lime
A palette of bright colors lends a cheery vibe to this living space. Matching bubblegum-pink sofas form an inviting seating area dotted with patterned pillows. Lime-green drapes and blue-gray walls provide cool complements to balance the pink. Warm wood floors and a white ceiling keep the vibrant hues grounded.
Pink Lemonade + Coral + Black
Layer various shades of pink to create a monochromatic color scheme that exudes comfort and warmth. Here, the walls, bedding, pillows, and rug showcase several iterations of the same warm pink hue. Black is used on the window trim, headboard, and wall art to give the room a modern edge that cuts through the palette's sweetness.
Raspberry + Soft Gray + Bright White
A deep raspberry shade of pink dominates in this bedroom, proving that a strong color in small doses goes a long way. The shade shows up on floral and velvet pillows and nightstand accessories, which stand out sharply against a backdrop of soft gray and white. Warm gray walls, crisp white bedding, and a white headboard maintain a peaceful atmosphere and prevent the pink accents from overwhelming.
Flamingo Pink + Blue + Neutrals
Pale pink partners with other soft shades to create a welcoming, cottage-style interior. Neutrals ranging from warm white to sandy beige cover the walls and furniture for a laidback look. The sofa's pile of pillows brings in color and pattern with pink and blue fabrics.
Rosy Magenta + Gray + Cream
Magenta drapes with a grayed-purple pattern bring a version of pink to this mostly gray and cream room. Because magenta is a blend of red and purple, it pairs well with both of these colors. Purple patterned throw pillows rest on the bed next to a rosy wool blanket, a lighter-hued version of the drapes, that offers a tonal difference. Soft gray and cream (as opposed to stark white) and metallic gold finishes ensure the bold colors feel warm and inviting.
Bright Pink + Yellow + White
Lighthearted in tone, this mostly white bedroom is livened up by a mix of pink patterned fabrics. The pillows, throw blanket, and curtains around the bed offer a mix of Palm Beach sophistication and Hawaiian style. The fabrics merge bright and friendly pink with sunshine yellow and lush green for a carefree, summery island feel.
Pink Rose + White + Powder Blue
Pops of pink energize this small but bright living room. The built-in window seat is outfitted with a pink-and-white damask print cushion, and Roman shades are trimmed in the same pink hue. The white, slipcovered sofa and barely-there blue walls contribute to the room's casual, breezy tone. A modern rattan bowl chair introduces a contemporary vibe, while a French, marble-topped cocktail table reflects the elegance of the pink damask.
Fuchsia + Light Brown + Wood Tones + White
In this dining area, a pair of upholstered chairs (and a few stripes on the draperies) is all it takes to make a statement with pink. Positioned at either end of the table, the pink chairs feature a cut velvet floral pattern that shimmers against a pale milk chocolate background. Wood furniture and built-in cabinetry, along with a beige area rug, set a neutral foundation that helps the pink accents stand out.
Coral Pink + Grassy Green + Clean White
Taking cues from the vintage floor tile, these homeowners chose to play to the pink tones rather than replace them. A pretty pink toile in just the right shade covers the walls, while green joins in accent pieces such as the chair and linens. White maintains the bath's clean, crisp look.
