As we’ve mentioned in our spring trends report, pink bathrooms are having a moment. It’s really no wonder: pink is a fun and playful colour that seems to greet you almost as a friend would as soon as you walk in a room filled with it.
However, as is the case with any other room filled with colour, curating a pink bathroom can feel like a bit overbearing – it can be hard to find a balance between monochromatic design and something that looks straight out of a Barbie movie. But all these worries vanish when you come across Balcon Studio‘s spectacular pink bathrooms.
Although the studio – which you can find on Instagram @balcon.studio – designs any and all rooms in the house in a variety of styles, we’re inclined to think bathrooms are their forte (we might be biased). And among their bathroom projects, you’ll find that many of them sport the colour pink like it’s nobody’s business.
So what is the secret? Well, if you’re going for a more toned down and subtle look for your pink bathroom, you might want to stray away from the hot pink that comes to mind when we think about our friend Barbara Millicent Roberts, and instead for coral or flamingo.
And since we entered the flamingo topic: why not try a wild, safari-inspired theme? Balcon Studio executed this concept to perfection in one of their pink bathroom projects. Having several isolated accent walls with fauna and flora inspired patterns, which then are adorned with magnificent lighting fixtures and even little monkey accessories, this bathroom takes the playfulness of pink to another level, making this little personal sanctuary as exciting as it is chic!
Taking another cue from Balcon Studio, don’t feel the need to use the same shade of pink throughout: it doesn’t have to perfectly match, in fact, it’s probably better if it doesn’t. Combine lighter and darker, colder and warmer shades of this lively colour and watch them bloom into something amazing!
Also, don’t be afraid of patterns, embrace them instead! Patterns and texture are essential in monochromatic rooms to guarantee dimension and interest. We highly suggest terrazzo. Not only is it as jolly as pink, but it is also a superb surface overall for any bathroom!
And for a final decor lesson on Balcon Studio‘s behalf: if someone has ever told you that red and pink together are a no-no, be assured that they were wrong. A pop of red isn’t going to hurt your pink bathroom design one bit, it’s actually going to enhance it! Don’t shy away from playing around with so-called “clashing” colours, it can make for a fabulous look!
