How to choose the right shade of pink for an accent wall
When it comes to choosing the right shade of pink for your accent wall, there are a few things you need to keep in mind.
First, consider the overall style and tone of your bedroom. If you want a more romantic look, opt for a softer shade of pink. A nice soft pink below is Fresia, which can be found in the Behr range of paints.
Another nice choice for a pink accent wall is Rosebud by Sherwin Williams.
If you’re going for a more modern look, then a brighter or bolder pink would be better suited. Sherwin Williams has a nice bold pink called Rose which would suit not just a bedroom but a living room, kids’ room, or nursery as well.
You also need to take into account the existing color scheme in your bedroom.
If your room is already fairly colorful, then you might want to choose a subtler shade of pink or pale pink for your pink accent wall so as not to overwhelm the space. But if your bedroom is on the more neutral side, then you can definitely go for a bolder hue, like Exuberant Pink by Sherwin Williams, for the walls.
And finally, think about what kind of mood you want to create in your bedroom. A pink accent wall can add a touch of playfulness and femininity, or it can be chic and sophisticated. No matter what look your ideas are, dark or light; there’s definitely a shade of pink paint that will suit your needs!

Tips for decorating with pink accents
Once you’ve chosen the perfect shade of paint for your pink accent wall, it’s time to start thinking about how to decorate the rest of the room.
If you want to keep the overall look fairly neutral, then we suggest adding pops of color with accessories and artwork. Think colorful throw pillows, rugs, and curtains. You could also hang a statement piece of art on your pink accent wall.
If you’re going for a more girly look, then you can definitely go all out with pink accents. We suggest adding pretty lace curtains, fluffy rugs, and delicate light fixtures.
You could even hang a mirror with a pink frame or add a chandelier to really make the space stand out. No matter what your style is, there are plenty of ways to incorporate pink into your bedroom décor!
Our design for a bedroom with a painted pink accent wall
For our bedroom design, we picked out the Rosebud paint by Sherwin Williams. Quite a feminine color but not too girly or cute.
We enhanced the accent wall by adding classic wood paneling to bring some warmth into the area and break up the pink accent wall.
For the remaining walls in the room, we decided on a nice bright white paint.
Wood paneling can be purchased in large pre-made panels, or you can create your own using strips of wood and varnished to your own particular requirements.
Furniture to complement a pink accent wall
A contemporary bed
As the pink accent wall is the feature wall, we wanted to position the bed up against it. We decided on a lovely white bed placed against the wood paneling.
This particular version is a Queen and made from faux leather with a wing-back headboard design, made from high-quality wood and a nice modern addition against the pink and wood paneling.
The Queen sized bed is available for $209.99, but there are other sizes and colors that you can choose from. It is very easy to assemble as well.
Simple white storage
To add storage to the space, we incorporated a modern chest of drawers.
The elegant four-drawer storage cabinet is constructed from wood and has gold, curved metal handles. The dimensions are (25.98 x 13 x 28.74)” / (66 x 33 x 73) cm (L x W x H) and there is plenty of room for tops, yoga pants or underwear.
It can be positioned in front of a window, a painted blank wall, or tucked in a corner and is priced at just $109.99.

Bedside storage space
To each side of our faux leather bed, we have two bedside units in white wood, which pop against the pink accent wall.
These units also complement the chest of drawers incorporating gold and white. There is also a decent size drawer to store your reading glasses, book, or any other accessories.
The cabinets are very modern and will add a touch of glamour to your bedroom. They are in the slightly higher budget range coming in at around $347.28 each.
Overhead lighting design
Adding more glamour to the painted pink accent wall are these stunning globe drop-down pendant lights for each side of the bed.
Again we are bringing in a touch of gold in the decor, and they will help light up the painted accent wall.
These drop-down lights are ceiling hung and are adjustable, and will cast a warm, dreamy glow over the area, which is the ideal type of soothing lighting for a bedroom.
The lights a contemporary style and are constructed from cool metal with a glass globe and are very reasonably priced at $50.99 each. You will have to purchase your own bulbs, but the strength of the bulbs is entirely your choice.

Alternative lighting for the bedroom
The lighting for a bedroom does not need to be harsh; think of something soft and subtle. If you have a large bedroom with a central ceiling light fitting, you could add in a brass-finished chandelier as accent decor, similar to the one below.

The soft furnishings for the room
It is time now to soften the room with curtains and fabrics.
Gorgeous luxury curtains
Dressing the windows with curtains or blinds is always a good idea as it enables a good night’s sleep and blocks out early sunrises or harsh light.
As we have a white wall around the window area, we added a subtle pop of color in the form of plush velvet curtain panels in a rose color.
The luxurious curtain panels are 50W x 84L grommet style, and the velvet again adds a bold, elegant style to the room. Each panel is available at $71.19 each; this does all depend on what size, width, and depth you require. Download the PDF below.
Now to throw on a cushion or two.
Time to have some fun with different colored accent cushions to elevate any white linen and the white headboard.
Dressing a bed with different shades of pink will glam up the room, so feel free to play about with the textures and colors.
Pink and brown accent
Our first choice is these pink and brown chevron patterned cushions to add texture and color to the bedroom.
The cushions are 20 x 20 and are only the covers, you will have to purchase the inserts separately, but each cover will set you back around $16.99.
Pretty in pink
A very deep pink – verging on burgundy – these cushion covers add another layer of texture and color to the bedding.
For $40 each, you get both the cover and the insert. The cover can be washed as it has a hidden zipper. Measuring 16 x 16 in size, these cushions add a very feminine touch to your bedroom.
A touch of gold
For our final throw cushion, we picked out a different shape and size in elegant gold.
Handwoven and at quite a price for a cushion coming in at $86.87 each but so very glam it hurts.
A dusky pink throw
A bed always looks so much more luxurious and finished with a comfy throw draped across it.
This blush pink throw is made from 100% microfiber polyester and brushed to create extra softness on both sides. The throw is also antistatic and should not wrinkle or shed.
This is quite a large throw at 50″ x 70″ and will hold up well after being washed. The price is a very reasonable $16.99.

I’ve not added too much to this room but a bedside clock in brass and a pretty vase on top of the cabinets. Obviously, these are not essentials; the decor is totally your choice.

The clock has an alarm with snooze, and the LED light flashes when the alarm rings. Dimensions: 1.57″ x 3.27″ x 3.19″ and powered just by batteries. Price $33.50.
