News flash! I used to hate pink. From the age of 16-22, if you asked me my least favourite colour, it would have probably been pink. Black, now that was my friend. White, perfect for walls (anything to distract from magnolia). But pink? Not on my watch.
Fast forward to 2019 and I’m well and truly in the “pink is my favourite colour” club, along with all those other millennials I guess. There’s something about the feminine and sickly sweet nature of pink that makes me feel rebellious against my normal gothic self and I’ve set about using the colour in most of my interior design schemes. If you too fancy a little bit of the pastel action, take some inspiration from these 7 pink bathrooms that are bound to get your heart racing.
1. The rock and roll bog.
There’s painting doors pink, and there’s painting doors pink. Design blogger and business mogul (and someone I’m proud to call my pal) Sarah Akwisombe has hit the sweet spot with this small yet edgy bathroom. The monochrome patterned vinyl floor and fresh coral shade make for the perfect Airbnb abode.

2. The creative spin.
Here’s one I made earlier. All hail The Earlsfield Loft! Our time with this heavenly pink bathroom was short-lived but I’m determined to bring it to a future home as it’s genuinely a scheme I CAN’T STOP THINKING ABOUT. As part of my year long partnership with Earthborn Paints, I decked out the room in the sultry tones of Delilah and finished the look with a complementary stripe in Lady Bug. This pink changes up with the light so expect Moroccan hues in natural light and a brighter pop at night!

3. The glam get-up.
We’re all wishing for a double vanity area, aren’t we? Rebecca Judd Loves has created an effortlessly cool bathroom with this symmetrical pink and brass design scheme and it’s fair to say I’m in love. The wall-mounted floating sinks and spherical mirrors keep the look clean and stop it from becoming too feminine.

4. The Californian retreat.
Forgive me if I head into a rendition of California by Phantom Planet but this bathroom is meeting all my Palm Springs requirements. The soft matte tiles with the odd burst of coral is my dream colour combination and I’m loving how the girls at Three Birds Renovations have colour matched the print too. What an enjoyable place to get ready, eh?

5. The retro haven.
Make like Amy Exton, the owner of Margate Location House and get your hands on a retro pink suite for your bathroom. Is this what Barbie’s house would look like? By painting the walls in a hot pink, colour matching the radiator and adding in a bunch of pink and red accessories, Amy has made this a bathroom that pops.

6. The bathroom of the future.
If you’re worried about going too over the top with pink (read: have a partner that opposes the whole thang), try incorporating just a small amount with a predominantly white scheme. This contemporary, almost futuristic, bathroom by Winwood McKenzie is a lesson in less is more. The geometric pink ceramic tiles are enough to floor any guest while the arches and curves are absolutely on point for 2020 trends.

7. The modern ode to the old.
If anybody knows how to do pink, its the boys at 2LG Studio. I’ve had the pleasure of using this bathroom and I’ve got to admit it’s one of the best rooms I’ve EVER set foot in. Referencing their Victorian home heritage but also staying in touch with their contemporary design style, the boys created an ode to the previous connotations of pink (note:the Victorians LOVED it). The walls, floors, shelves and vanity top have been consumed by matte pink tiles but the nickel fixtures and floaty bathtub keep the look soft.
