Refreshing Pink and Green Living Room Decor Ideas

A pink and green living room was never on my agenda a few years ago. I have always loved green, but only ever used pink sparingly, in flower arrangments or artwork. However, when we purchased our dark green sofa, we needed another sofa to complement it and I was left scratching my head.

I didn’t want another dark green sofa, as I felt this was green overload. My initial thought was to go with a mustard velvet sofa, but when I visited the sofa showroom, it just didn’t work.

This was when we put a few fabrics together and I loved how pink and green worked, so we ended up with a pink and green velvet sofa in our living room and we loved it.

If you would love to introduce these colors into your living room but don’t know where to start, here are some ideas to get you on your way.

This combination, when done correctly, can create a space that is both stylish and refreshing, blending the qualities of soothing green and a cheerful pink.

Before diving into specific decor ideas, it’s essential to understand the psychological impact of the colors pink and green. Pink, often associated with love and kindness, has a calming effect and can make a space feel more nurturing and warm.

On the other hand, green, reminiscent of nature, promotes a sense of balance and renewal. Together, these colors can create a living room environment that feels both energized and relaxed, perfect for entertaining guests or unwinding after a long day.

Start with a Neutral Base

If, as we did, you are considering adding pink and green furniture and soft furnishings, it is best to start with a neutral base. Walls painted in soft shades of white, cream, pink, or a soft sage green will work.

A neutral base also offers flexibility if you want to change your living room decor in the future.

However, if you feel bolder and more confident with using pink and green, darker shades of green on the wall will work, as long as you keep the furniture and soft furnishings light.

Choosing the Right Shades

The shades of pink and green you choose can significantly affect the mood of your living room. For a more subdued, sophisticated look, opt for muted tones like sage green and dusty pink. These softer hues can create a serene and inviting atmosphere.

If you prefer a more dynamic and lively space, consider brighter shades such as emerald green and hot pink. These bolder colors can add a fun and energetic vibe to your living room.

If you choose a soft white or cream base, you can go with vibrant shades of pink and green. Emerald green and hot pink sofas are a bold statement that are grounded by the marble coffee table and neutral soft furnishings.

To bring the whole room together, choose soft furnishings that have a hint of pink in them, and add plants to complement the green sofas.

Sage Green Walls With Dusty Pink

Paint your walls a soft sage green, such as Farrow & Ball Eddy, and add dusty pink sofas. With the majority of color on your walls and in the furniture, you can keep the rest of the room fairly neutral.

A sage green rug with hints of pink in it helps combine the walls and furniture and the gold coffee table adds a touch of luxury.

Soft Pink Walls With Dark Green Sofas

This color scheme works well for several reasons. The softness of the pink walls provides a soothing backdrop that allows the vibrant green furniture to stand out without clashing.

Moreover, the use of different textures, the velvet of the sofa, the smoothness of the marble coffee table, and the softness of the pillows, add a tactile quality that makes the space inviting.

Green Walls with Pink Sofas

The green walls provide a rich, soothing backdrop that complements the softer pink tones of the sofas.

As the green paint is a slightly darker color, it helps accentuate the wall’s architecture without overwhelming the room. Again, using green and pink in the rug and artwork helps pull the whole room together, making it look cohesive and well-thought-out.

Using Pink and Green in a Neutral Living Room

If you have already painted your walls and have neutral sofas, but you want to bring pink and green into your living room, this can easily be done with textiles, fabrics, wall art, and lighting.

Textiles and Fabrics

Textiles and fabrics are an excellent way to incorporate pink and green into your living room without making permanent changes. Consider green curtains to bring a touch of nature indoors, paired with a soft pink rug to warm up the space.

Throw blankets and cushions in varying shades of pink and green can also add depth and texture, making your living room feel more inviting.

Wall Art and Decor

Artwork and decor items are where you can easily introduce pink and green into your living room. Create a gallery wall featuring prints in shades of pink and green for a modern, eclectic look.

For a more minimalist approach, select a few large pieces that make a statement. Incorporating plants is another great way to add green to your space, enhancing the room’s natural vibe.

Visiting local botanical gardens can offer inspiration and direct access to a wide variety of plants that could complement your decor, embodying the natural vibe you’re aiming for. For those living in Canada, the convenience of having fresh, thematic flowers delivered right to your door is unparalleled. Consider exploring flower delivery in Toronto to add that vibrant touch of pink and green to your living space.


The right lighting can transform the ambiance of your living room. Soft, warm lighting can accentuate the pink tones, creating a cozy and welcoming environment. Incorporate green through lampshades or a statement pendant light to add a touch of color and interest.
