If you're looking for a way to add a touch of femininity to your home, specifically in the living room, consider using grey and shades of pink together. This colour combination is perfect for creating a relaxing and inviting space.

It's not unusual to see a dusky pink and grey palette in a girl's bedroom, but it is a rarer occurrence in a living room setting. However, that doesn't mean that it can't be stunning if done correctly.

The key to using these colours together is to find the right balance. Too many pink walls can be overwhelming, and too much grey can make the space feel cold and uninviting. The perfect ratio of pink to grey will depend on the size of your room and the amount of natural light it receives.

In this article, I'll show you some of my favourite pink and grey living room ideas to create a cohesive, modern and grown-up space. So read on to get started!

Modern Grey and Pink Living Room

A subtle take on grey living rooms with pink as an accent, this cool grey space incorporates pink accessories into the interior design.

A mixture of blush pink and silvery pinks have been chosen for the differing textures of the cushions, throw and side table, giving a modern and elegant feel to the space.

Although there is a shimmer of silvery grey within the rug, this living room interior inspiration is based almost solely on subtly balanced pink hues.

The cooler tones and soft pale shades of the blush pink walls and curtains match almost seamlessly with the soft pink of the couch and seat.

Gold has then been added as an accent to break up the pink monotony. This has been used within the table accessories, side table lamps and ceiling light fixture, which creates a modern and elegant edge to the living space.

Just the Right Mix of Grey and Pink

If you're not sure where to start, I recommend choosing one colour as your base and using the other as an accent for accessories, furniture and decor.

For example, you could paint the walls grey and use shades of pink for the furniture or create a beautiful pink feature wall in your living space. You could also use wallpaper to create the perfect feature wall in either colour.

When it comes to pink and grey living room ideas and choosing paint colours, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, consider the amount of light in your room. If the space is on the darker side, you may want to opt for a lighter grey paint with neutral pink accents. Conversely, if your living room gets a lot of natural light, you can go for a dark grey and soft shades of pink.

You'll also want to think about the other colours present in your living room and how they will work with grey and pink. For example, if you have a lot of brown or grey furniture, you may want to choose a greige (grey + beige) colour for the walls. This will help to tie everything together.

This living room mixes shades of pink and grey subtly and stylishly. The soft light grey on the walls is well balanced against the slightly darker tones of the corner sofa, while the warm pink accents come from the cushions, footstool and modern pink and grey geometric rug.

Another common design trick is to combine different textures and natural materials, which adds a further element to the overall scheme and creates another layer of luxury into the mix.

Bold Pink Accent Wall

As shown in the example above, a simple way to create a pink and grey living room design is to use a bold pink accent wall. This will add a pop of colour to the space and make it feel more warm and inviting. To balance out the boldness of the pink, use a mid-grey for your sofa or other large pieces of furniture. You can also use grey and white together as accent colours, this will help to brighten up the space and make it feel more open and airy.

Many colours go with a grey sofa, so take your time to choose one that suits your room or personality perfectly.


Pink and Grey Lounge

Extra pink has been used as the main accent colour in this pastel pink and grey living room design. Three different tones of grey are used on the wall and in the grey sofa and light grey rug. A beautiful blush pink has been used in all of the soft furnishings, creating a cascade of pink tones throughout.

The subtle finishing touches, and the perfect way to carry the interior design theme across all elements of the space, are the pink and grey artwork pieces above the sofa and accent pale grey of the floor lamp shade.

Grey and Pink Furniture

When choosing furniture for your living room, it's important to consider both comfort and style. Grey and pink upholstered furniture is a popular choice for many homeowners. You can find sofas, armchairs, and ottomans in these colours at most furniture stores.

If you want to add a pop of colour, consider using a shade of pink or grey throw pillows or blankets. These are easy to switch out when you want to change up your look. This pink and grey Jamari lounge chair, available from Wayfair, would be a stunning addition to any living room that is utilising this colour scheme.

Pink and Grey Wall Art

Consider adding pink and grey wall art to your living room space to increase visual interest and complement the rest of your pink and grey living room decor. Wall art is perfect for creating a focal point in your room, or just adding extra layers of colour and personality to your decor.

When it comes to wall art for your living room, you have a few options. You can choose art that is specifically composed of grey and pink tones. Alternatively, select artwork that contains other colours that complement the scheme. For example, black and white photos or prints would look great in contrast with this colour scheme.

Grey is often associated with sophistication, while pink is often seen as romantic and feminine. When used together, they create a beautiful contrast.

Adding a modern stylish rug is another simple way to tie pink and grey living room ideas together, without breaking the bank, or creating a huge decorating job for yourself.

Whether you go for a soft grey floor covering, a pink shaggy rug, or a rug with a combination of both colours, the finished look will be more cohesive and complete.

A Scandinavian design coffee table placed in the centre of the rug finishes the space perfectly and creates a focal point for the sofas surrounding it.
