Putting on the pink for a London bedroom

london streets in gray and pink

I love when I run across some bedding that just begs to have a room built around it. Which is what happened when I first saw the Streets of London set and below is the pink London bedroom as a result.

And easy enough to bring in decor items that coordinate with those colors. I’ve focused on ones that specifically go with the bedding in some way – like the chandelier to match the pillow and the Scottie dog to pair with the one in the comforter and the London bus mirror.

Like the striping? My thought was either to mix up the walls or paint them in the stripe as is. The dark taupe color meant the wall decal got lost in the background and I really liked this particular one for this look. I toyed with a black/gray rug instead of the pink, but decided the extra pop of color was nice. Your choice could vary depending on the color you paint the walls and how much pink you bring in in other ways.

Caveat: Monitor and image colors aren’t always what they seem, unfortunately. Matching the grays and pinks wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be when I started out. This is one of those times when you have to either be flexible or only buy things you can see.
