Blush Pink Color Palette

A sweet touch to any space, blush pink looks just right when paired with deeper hues like silvery greens and steely blues.

Blended Blush Patterns

Fresh flowers and personal touches like the framed photograph add a laid-back feel to this cottage-style bedroom. Despite the sweet pink color scheme, the blend of blush and steely blue, along with a smart mix of floral and checkered patterns, results in a gender-neutral space.

Pale Pink + Peach

This adorable living room features a pale pink, velvet Chesterfield sofa combined with peach drapes.

Subtle Citrus Hues

A vibrant blend of orange, pink and gold dominates the color scheme in this eclectic living room, while a gray velvet sofa adds contrast to the space.

Blush 101

Blush is one of the most complex colors to work with, but when paired with the right accent colors, it can be super chic and rich. Here, blush is paired with a crisp, white backdrop and accented with shiny touches of brass for a vintage look.

Armchair Eye Candy

Sophisticated and chic, this formal sitting room features a pair of blush pink velvet armchairs and a round leather ottoman that also functions as a coffee table. The soft gray rug anchors the space and complements the light gray walls.

Blushing Banquette

Framed by windows topped with delicate pink block-print window treatments, this sweet breakfast nook features charming banquette seating paired with a rustic table and chairs.

Wall Flowers

The clawfoot tub in this cottage-style bathroom is the perfect place to relax and unwind. A soft blush wallpaper with cream-colored flowers adds to the effortless femininity of the space.

Feminine Details

A cosmic chair forms a focal point in this bright and airy girl's bedroom. Glamour, sparkle and romance combine in the accessories, while white walls keep the backdrop crisp and clean. A blush pink accent wall adds a delicate touch.

Understated Glamour

Furnishings like the pale pink sofa, black-and-white striped armchair and pair of upholstered leopard-print stools bring a feminine look to the design, while a hint of gold from the mirror and floor lamps adds a glamorous touch.

Powder Pink Room

Designer Christina Stillwaugh combined this stylish gold sink and sconces with a dramatic, large-scale floral wallpaper that highlights the subtle pink tones in the stone floor.

Colorful Focal Point

The vaulted ceiling creates a picture-perfect frame for this colorful living room. With a beautiful pink accent wall taking center stage, the fireplace is kept neutral in smoky gray.

Soft Serenity

Soft green accents combine with shades of delicate pink to create a charming color palette in this ultra-peaceful girl's bedroom. 

Perfect Shade of Pale

A black leather armchair makes a sculptural swoosh of style against a pale pink wall, perfectly complemented by the wood end table.

All About Balance

Designer Ana Donohue defines this contemporary living room as "Bermuda in the city," as it suggests a subdued glamour with its soft color palette and minimalist approach. The unusual shade of blush in the grasscloth wallpaper sets the tone for the room and allows the club chairs to make a strong, ultra-sophisticated statement.

Barely-There Blush

A mirror with chrome detail adds visual interest to this living room, while gentle tones of purple, pink and gray create a soft, airy look.
