Ideas for decorating girls' bedrooms in hot pink & black

Updated April 17, 2017

Make your girl's bedroom dreams come true by incorporating her chosen colours -- hot pink and black -- into a well-coordinated bedroom. Both of these colours are on the darker side, so use white and paler shades of pink in the room to open up the space. Consider hot pink and black your primary colours and the white and paler shades of pink your supporting colours. All rooms in darker shades typically rely on white or other light colours to soften up a room, particularly a young girl's room.

Paint and Wallpaper

Four black walls are a lot of black; if your child insists on a black wall, limit it to one wall. Paint the other walls a hot pink if the room is larger. Paint three walls white and one wall hot pink in a smaller room. Another option is to use black and hot pink wallpaper installed on one wall as the accent wall. Paint the other walls a pale shade of pink. This approach works in rooms of all sizes.


Use black and hot pink textiles, such as bedding, curtains, throw pillows and rugs, throughout the girl's room. Keep the bedding simple; hot pink or pink and black patterned sheets work best. Use a hot pink duvet cover or comforter, and toss black throw pillows, along with throw pillows in pale shades of pink, on the bed. Survey your room after adding these textiles; if your room needs a little more pink, add hot pink curtains and black floor rugs. If the room is in need of a little more black, add pink and black striped curtains and black floor rugs.


Black or white girl's furniture will work best with a hot pink and black bedroom. Stainless steel handles work well with hot pink and black as primary colours; handles are one of many items that can be easily changed during renovations. Add a cute girl's chair in a soft pink with a solid black throw pillow.


Stainless steel lights make for a cosy feel for her reading and homework activities. Add hot pink, white, black and stainless steel vases, and poke fake white daisies in each vase. Arrange these on the windowsill. Frame hot pink and black wallpaper in black frames (Keep all mattes white for a focused look.), and place them on the walls.
