A great thing about “Millennial Pink” is that it works with so many colours so wallpaper is a fantastic way to incorporate it into a room. You can have it on all four walls or just one to make it a feature. That will be sure to make it a talking point.

All these wonderful pictures give us inspiration for our own homes and give us fantastic ideas on how to update a room or transform it completely.



There are a lot of us out there that live in homes with rooms that are completely white or magnolia…. (speaking from experience!) and don’t want to change the colour as it’s relaxing or it looks nice and clean. Therefore going completely pink might not be for you but you might want to have white rooms and change your accessories with the biggest trends.

Thought that might get you listening. Go on – do it, I dare you…..


Here are some accessories that are “millennial pink” to make your room pop!
