Decorating an all pink tile bathroom taking color combo inspiration from wallpaper:

vintage pink bathroomBradbury & Bradbury’s Atomic doodle wallpaper in pink might have been made for an all-pink vintage bathroom. The fun shapes keep the room interesting while also popping in a few more colors — gold, black and white — into the space. The rest of the room should be kept simple so a white shower curtain and plain pink and gold towels get the job done without detracting from the fun wallpaper pattern.

All that you’ll need to finish off the space is a plain white shower curtain and a selection of light pink and grey towels. Easy and elegant.

This look centers around this white, black and coral pink flower shower curtain that blends in with the tile. To create a harmonious and flattering retro botox affect, the walls are also painted light peachy pink. Light and dark pink towels finish the room.

A pale yellow wall color ensures the sunshine bounces around the whole bathroom while towels in dark pink and green bring out the darker hues in the shower curtain pattern to help ground the space.

Choosing a light sage green for the wall paint coordinates with the curtain and uses the complementary color scheme of pink and green to give a balanced feel to the space. Repeating the same complementary color scheme in the pink and green towels helps give the room a cohesive feeling.

A pale pink wall color lets the shower curtain take center stage and coordinating hot pink and aqua towels repeat the hot hues from the curtain elsewhere in the room.

A medium teal blue color, pulled straight from the shower curtain design creates an intense backdrop that lets the curtain take center stage. Finishing off the look are dark pink and white towels.

    I like the flamingo combinations the most, though all are lovely.
    I would recommend if decorating this way-taking the color cues from the shower curtain-to buy several shower curtains because they will have a shorter lifespan compared to the towels.

  2. Joan says

    I love all of these, which surprised me because I’ve never been a fan of pink. I could definitely live with and enjoy any of these bathrooms! For some reason I really like the pink and coral combo!

  3. Carole says

    I would never expect to hear myself saying this….but I LOVE the flamingo shower curtains. lol That first one would make a fabulous wallpaper!

  4. Roundhouse Sarah says

    Loving all the pink bath mood boards. I’ve sent all the links to my MIL since she will be redecorating her pink bath soon.

      (at the way end of the series, we’ll put them all in one photo gallery. but don’t tell anyone yet, it’s a secret!)

    I think this group of mood boards are so stunning. There’s something about flamingo curtains that is so cheerful and exhilarating. I hardly know which I would pick!

    Pam, you are so funny, posting your “secrets” on the web site. You must indeed be getting squirrely.

    My favorites this time are the wallpaper with big gray leaves with pink, the green floral with pink and the flamingo shower curtain with aqua. Wish I had thought of introducing aqua with my pink and gray bath.

    Oh, and I was in my local Goodwill the other day, hoping I would find some inexpensive tiki-like planters for my new patio. I didn’t find any, but I saw a woman who had scored some brand new or nearly new PINK and GREEN bath towels! She had a bunch of other stuff, too, like vintage dishes and Corelle casseroles, so that it looked as though she were just moving into a new place with a midcentury vibe.

    Mind you, when I moved into my pink and gray bath, there were no decent towels in Goodwill of any color. She must have lucked out coming on that day.

    Fun ideas, but none (so far!) that appeal to me, which realky surprises me. I usually find one or two concepts that catch by eye. Perhaps a colour story with stronger usage of black or charcoal? I’m not anti-pink at all, but it’s always been difficult for me to gravitate to. It’s why the pink tiles in the main floor bathroom stayed minimalist and paired with white everywhere until we sold it. I just wasn’t inspired in there the way I was in other rooms in the house.
