Pink carpet? Absolutely! It’s bold, it’s cheerful, and it can truly transform a space from the ground up. If you’ve decided to add a splash of pink to your floors, or are considering it, you’re in for a delightful decorating journey.

Pink carpet can range from subtle blush tones to vibrant magenta shades, and each hue can set a different mood and style for your room. Here at Frank’s, we’re excited to help you navigate through styling your pink carpet with furniture, soft furnishings, and other decor elements.

Let’s get started on creating a space that’s as unique as it is beautiful with pink carpet.

Choosing the Right Shade of Pink

Before diving into furniture and decorations, it’s important to select the right shade of pink. Lighter pinks, like blush or baby pink, create a soft, serene atmosphere and are easier to match with a variety of decor styles. Darker pinks, such as fuchsia, make a bold statement and are ideal for vibrant, energetic spaces.

Furniture That Complements Pink

When it comes to furniture, you want pieces that complement, not compete with, your pink carpet. Neutral tones like whites, greys, and beiges are always safe choices as they let the pink shine while maintaining a chic and balanced look. If you prefer a bit of contrast, choose darker hues like navy blue, deep greens, or even black for a sophisticated edge.

  • Wooden elements also work beautifully with pink. Light woods like oak and birch can soften the look, while darker woods like walnut add a striking contrast.

Soft Furnishings: Cushions and Curtains

Soft furnishings are where you can really play with textures and complementary colours to enhance your pink carpet.

  • Cushions: For lighter pink carpets, consider cushions in varying shades of pink, cream, and taupe to maintain a soft, monochromatic look. If your carpet is a deeper pink, throw in some cushions with bold patterns in complementary colours like teal, mustard, or even purple to bring vibrancy and depth to the room.
  • Curtains: Keep curtains in a lighter shade if your carpet is bright or deep pink to avoid overwhelming the space. For paler pink carpets, you can afford to go a bit darker or bolder with curtain colours. Textured fabrics like linen or velvet can add a luxurious feel to the room.

Decor Elements to Tie the Room Together

Decorating with a pink carpet means you can make the floor the focal point of your room, but you still need other elements to tie the whole look together.

  • Rugs: Layering rugs can add depth to your room. Choose a smaller, neutral-toned rug to place on top of your pink carpet in areas you want to highlight, like under the coffee table.
  • Artwork: Wall art can help balance the pink in your carpet. Opt for pieces that include some of the room’s accent colours or stick with black and white to add sophistication.
  • Metallics: Gold and copper are fantastic metallics that naturally complement pink. Incorporate them through light fixtures, frames, or decorative objects to add a touch of glamour.
  • Greenery: Plants are a wonderful way to add freshness to any room. Green looks great with pink, so consider large leafy plants or even small succulents to breathe life into your decor.

Balancing the Boldness

While a pink carpet is a statement in itself, balancing its boldness with the rest of your decor is key to a perfect space. Keep large furniture pieces in neutral colours and use accents and small decor items to introduce additional colours and textures. This approach keeps the room from feeling overwhelmed by the pink and makes it a stylish, welcoming space.


With the right furnishings, soft furnishings, and decor elements, you can create a space with pink carpet that’s both inviting and stylish. Pop into your local Frank’s, and let’s create a home that’s brave and beautiful!
