The queen of twee has proven that she is also the queen of bathroom wall colors. Zooey Deschanel took to Instagram with a picture in her antique bathroom mirror, and interior designers can't get over the color scheme. The actress debuted her walls that use a combination of pink and cream wallpaper with muted blue tiles. Though unexpected, the pairing is stunning. 

Zooey's bathroom decor invokes a feeling of cozy and traditional farmhouse maximalism, and the color choices just enhance the warmth. Because of its positive effects, interior designers expect that her pink and blue bathroom colors will be everywhere in 2024. 

Jacky Chou, interior designer and Director at Archute, states: 'One of the benefits of using bright colors in a bathroom is that they can create a cheerful and energetic mood. Bright colors can also make a small space feel bigger and more spacious. They can also reflect more light and make the room brighter. A bright color scheme can also show off your personality and creativity. It can make your bathroom stand out from the rest and express your unique style.'

Furthermore, interior designers say the blue and pink of Zooey Deschanel's bathroom work perfectly together. Jennifer Ebert, digital editor at Homes & Gardens, states: 'Blue and pink is always a winning color combination, especially when it comes to bathroom walls. As a smaller room in the home, there's no reason not to go for a bold palette in the decor.'

 Jacky says, 'A blue tile brings some contrast and interest to this room. Blue is a cool color that can balance out the warmth of the pink wallpaper.' He continues, 'Blue can also create a sense of calmness and freshness. It can evoke the feeling of water and sky, which can be relaxing and soothing. A bright blue tile can also add some texture and shine to the room. It helps make the room look more modern and sleek.'


Sometimes, all your home needs is a pop of color. If you love Zooey Deschanel's bathroom, get inspired by the way she uses the same dramatic wallpaper in the living room of her home.
