The List: Pink Floral Wallpaper

Looking to update your walls with pink floral wallpaper? We’ve gathered together the most coveted flower wallpaper designs to give you a little inspiration for your home.

Floral wallpaper is a perennial favourite among homeowners. It’s a popular choice that never seems to go out of fashion.

And with the world currently gripped by Barbie — sales of pink floral wallpaper have skyrocketed.

The team at Graham and Brown reported a whopping increase of 95%, in June’s sales, of their pink wallpaper and pink custom wallpaper, as opposed to 2022.

But, whilst some are riding a Barbiecore wave, we chatted with a couple of women who said that they wouldn’t be able to get away with pink in their homes.

Mum of three boys, Jenny, said:

‘I love wallpaper. And I love pink! But in a houseful of testosterone, pink flower wallpaper would be a step too far.’

So, in a bid to persuade Jenny (and her boys) that pink floral wallpaper doesn’t have to mean sweet and saccharine, but instead can add a touch of warmth and glamour — whatever your gender — we’ve put together a list of our current favourites.

Vintage Pink Floral Wallpaper

Vintage pink floral wallpaper might conjure up thoughts of granny chic and old-lady vibes.

But vintage is enjoying a thoroughly modern revival — and has never looked so good. Think rose, or 50’s ‘Strawberry Ice‘ shades to evoke a nostalgic feel in your home.

Using Pink Floral Wallpaper in Your Home

Pink floral wallpaper can transform any interior into a warm and inviting space. It can bring a touch of nature indoors with a burst of colour. As we’ve already demonstrated, you can use a gentle, blush shade for a calm, serene feel. Or go to the opposite end of the spectrum, choosing a hot pink floral for a pop of bright, invigorating colour.

Pink is found in so many elements of nature. From shells and rock, flowers and leaves, to birds and animals, the list is endless. It’s no wonder we humans feel at ease when we use shades of pink in our surroundings. It’s a great way of adding biophilic design to your home.

Transforming the Living Room with Floral Wallpaper

The living room is an area of your home where you may want to make a statement and show off your unique style. Whether it’s a contemporary rose pattern with soft blush tones. Or a more traditional design, flower wallpaper can add warmth and depth to your living room.

Pink floral wallpaper is a great way to introduce a soft, feminine touch to your space without being too overpowering. Using it on one feature wall can create a focal point that draws the eye. Pair the wallpaper with neutral furniture and accessories to keep the room from feeling too busy or overwhelming.

Designing a Dreamy Bedroom

One of the most popular rooms to use pink floral wallpaper is the bedroom. The soft and romantic tones of pink can create a relaxing and serene atmosphere, that is perfect for unwinding after a long day. Floral patterns add elements of interest and whimsy to a space, preventing it from feeling bland or stark.

Whether you opt for a smaller, more detailed floral pattern in the bedroom, to keep the ambience restful and calm. Or plump for a larger pattern — as in the image below — as long as the tones are soft, the wallpaper will promote a restful vibe.

Incorporate colours from the wallpaper into your soft furnishings to tie the room together.

Boosting the Bathroom Aesthetics

Bathrooms can also benefit from the addition of pink floral wallpaper. Often, these spaces are small and lack the character and warmth of other rooms in the home. Wallpaper can help add personality and make the bathroom feel warm and inviting.

Select a water-resistant wallpaper that can withstand the humidity of the bathroom. Consider a bold, large-scale floral pattern to give the illusion of a larger space. Pair with white or neutral fixtures to let the wallpaper be the star of the show.

Adding Colour to the Kitchen

Lastly, why not introduce an unexpected edge to your kitchen? Gone are the days of a stark, utilitarian space. These days colour, texture and pattern can all help to soften the feel of a kitchen; using rugs, tiles and — yes, you’ve guessed it — wallpaper.

Pink floral wallpaper can be a great injection of colour and character into a space often filled with hard, functional surfaces.

Choose a wallpaper with an easy-to-clean surface and a pattern that isn’t too delicate to withstand the kitchen’s hustle and bustle. This might mean opting for a stylised, abstract floral design that will continue to look good even with the occasional splash or spill.

Colour Coordination and Balance

When using pink floral wallpaper in your home, consider the balance of colour.

The other shades used in the room should complement the wallpaper rather than compete with it. Neutrals, whites, and grays often work well, as do darker, moody colours for dramatic contrast.

As pink comes in various tones, from pastel hues to hot pinks your choice should align with the overall feeling you want to evoke in the room. Pastels can be calming and tranquil, while brighter, hotter pinks can feel more energising and fun.

Scale and Pattern

Scale is another factor to consider. The designer’s rule of thumb used to be that larger patterns can make a space seem smaller and more intimate, whilst smaller patterns can make a room feel larger. But this train of thought has been turned on its head in recent years.

There’s no reason why big, blousy florals shouldn’t make an appearance in a smaller space.

Equally, it used to be thought that intricate patterns can make a room feel more traditional, while bold, modern floral patterns can make the space feel contemporary and fresh. Again, we believe it’s down to personal taste. Anything goes these days!

Why not play with different styles and see what works best for you.

In Conclusion

Pink flower wallpaper is a versatile design element that can add warmth, interest, and personality to your home.

By considering factors such as the room’s purpose, the scale and style of the pattern — plus your colour scheme — you can create a space that feels uniquely you.

Whether it’s creating a statement wall in your living room. Designing a dreamy bedroom. Boosting bathroom aesthetics or creating a playful kitchen, the possibilities are endless.

And hopefully, this has demonstrated that pink floral wallpaper can work, whether you live in a houseful of Barbies — or a homeful of boys.
