I wanted to add some new color to our attic bedroom. I added multiple pinks and it is now so light and bright!
Attic bedrooms can be dark and dreary, but they don’t have to be. By adding some color, you can make any space (especially a bedroom) into a happy space.
How to Add Color to a Room
I thought it might be fun to add it to our attic bedroom. I pulled out a few of my paintings (I painted them a few years ago) and then scoured the home for any extra pink decor items I could find.
We remodeled our third-floor attic bedroom over a year ago and I decorated it in neutral tones.
I love how we remodeled this room. But something was missing … color.
For the Christmas holidays, I decorated it in red and white. Which helped to add some life to this room. But when the holidays were over it went back to a colorless room.
So I decided it was time for some longer-lasting color.
Also known as pink.
How to Add Pink to An Attic Bedroom
You will notice that all I did was add pink accessories. I love that they can make the room look quite different and yet they are not permanent. In fact, most of the accessories in our home get moved all year long from one place to another!
This painting is one of mine. I painted it a few years ago.
The slipcover on the chair is a bit big. I made it and it was my first slipcover attempt but somehow I made it a little big (not on purpose). Hopefully, when I wash it there might be some “shrinkage”.
Both the vintage quilt and vintage pillowcases are from the Rose Bowl Antique Flea Market. I made the felt flower pillow and you can find the DIY for that here.
I switched out some of the books and decor on the bookshelves. It is now mostly pink. What a surprise.

A quick tip – If you want to organize the color in your bookshelves and you don’t like the color of your books, just turn them to the backside and the colors won’t show. If you look at my bookshelves, you can see I did exactly that.
I love books, don’t get me wrong. These bookcases used to be packed full of books.
But we decided the books needed to be moved to our beach house because that’s likely where they will get used. We are starting a remodel of our beach house and I am excited that we will have an office/bedroom with bookshelves to house a library of perfect books to read while at the beach.
I also installed battery operated-remote control lights at the tops of the bookshelves. I love the extra light they provide.
Frequently Asked Questions
When decorating your bedroom, I suggest you keep things simple and comfortable. Use subtle colors and make sure comfort is your priority.
You obviously need a comfortable bed, adequate storage, and really good linens. If it’s a guest bedroom then you might consider storing extra linens, towels, and linens in the room.
Also, drapes are a must for comfort.
You should start every re-decorating job by shopping your own home. Then, start with a reorganization of the room. Get rid of any extra items and move the furniture around. This always is a great start to redecorating.
Shop the sales for new bedding, as a new quilt or comforter can make a huge difference.
If the budget allows, change out the artwork or a lamp if needed.
