Something we love about pink and grey bedrooms is how versatile they are. You can adapt this color combo to suit all styles – from the super traditional to the uber-modern. Even the ever-popular boho trend can work, just check out this bedroom. The dusky pale pink works perfectly with the pale grey bed and Berber rug. Pop in a few houseplants too to complete the look.

First of all, how amazing is this chest of drawers? You could definitely recreate the look with some masking tape and a pot of pink paint. But if you want to add just a touch of pink to your grey bedroom, a gallery wall is a great way to do so. For loads of gallery wall ideas, head over to our feature.

If you prefer more traditional pink and grey bedroom, let this one inspire you.

A touch of glamour from the chandelier gives  it a French boudoir vibe that we are definitely  here for.

See, told you they were easy! If you already have a grey theme going on in your bedroom – doesn't have to be anything major, a grey headboard, or some bedding would do the trick – accessorize with smaller elements of pink. We love how in this bedroom, there's no in your face bright pink, just tiny pops coming through in the cushions, prints, planter holders and even the vase has a tiny blush accent. 

7. Paint a bedroom wall a bang-on-trend dusky pink

Blush pinks are our favorite at the moment, and they are the best tone to work with grey too. They bring warmth to cooler tones and look amazing with any shade of grey – even black looks lovely combined with this pink. 

Bring this gorgeous color into your bedroom by painting a feature wall – we would recommend the wall behind your bed. You can add grey with your throw cushions and bedding to get that dreamy combo.

P.S our fave pink paint at the moment? It's Farrow & Ball's Sulking Room Pink

8. Create a color block effect with a dado rail 

Oooh just look how that pink pops against the grey of the dado rail. This is a look you can create so easily too – even if you don't have a dado rail, create a similar effect by using masking tape and painting the bottom section grey. 

9. Combine pink paint with a grey wallpaper in a bedroom

10. Go traditional with greys and peachy pinks 

Peachy, almost bare plaster pinks are bang on trend at the moment and they do look lovely when paired with a light grey. They are both very calming colors hence why they work so well in a bedroom and they are also a great backdrop for adding more vibrant hues – in this bedroom with love the blues and the pop of bright fuchsia pink.

11. Contrast pink with a dark grey furniture

If you are a big fan of pink and grey bedrooms but don't want your space to be too saccharine, adding some statement dark furniture to your scheme will give it more of an edge. Keep the walls pretty in a blush pink and your sheets soft with light greys but bring in a stark contrast with a black bed frame or a deep charcoal bedside table.

Note how the floorboards in this bedroom have been painted black too to really up the drama and ground all those soft, subtle hues. If you like the idea of a black bedroom color scheme, we have plenty more ideas over in our gallery. 

12. Pair pink with the softest greys

Rather than pair pink and grey in a bedroom, why not merge the colors together to create a... grink? Prey? A pink and grey hybrid that results in a gorgeously soft, but slightly moody nude tone. This muted color works perfectly in minimalist spaces where the color scheme is kept really simple, with just a few very similar tones going on. Pile up the textures as a way of adding interest and you could add a few touches of black for contrast.

13. Break up a pink wall with a dark grey headboard

Simple but statement, a grey headboard against a pink wall is all that's needed to tie this color scheme together. The clean lines and deeper grey of the headboard offset the pale pinks and greys used throughout the rest of the room, giving this attic bedroom a more modern, grown-up feel.
