I wanted to add some of my new winter colors to one of our bedrooms. I added pink to our guest bedroom and I love it.
How to Add Color to a Room
Pink is slowly infiltrating our home. So far I have added pink to our kitchen, dining room, craft room, and living room. Later this week I will be sharing the pink in the family room.
I thought it might be fun to add it to one of our bedrooms. Just to play it safe, I decided to add some pink to our guest 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 guest bedroom last fall. I decorated it in neutral tones.
For the Christmas holidays, I decorated it in red and white.
Now it’s time for some pink.
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 too, 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. I made it a little big but not on purpose.
Both the vintage quilt and vintage pillow cases 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 in 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 backwards and the colors won’t show. If you look on 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 taken up 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 in the tops of the bookshelves. I love the extra light they provide.
