Pink flamingo decor is just fun.  I have rounded up 14 ways to use flamingos in your home.  I don’t know what it is about them that make flamingos so fanciful. Perhaps I have grown so interested in flamingo decor because I am decorating my Florida house, or just because I need some fun color in my life with the drabness of Winter upon us.  No matter why, here comes the what…FLAMINGOS!

14 Ways to Use Flamingos in Your Home

Flamingo on a wall in a small space

From Apartment Therapy, this beautiful flamingo fills the wall of a tiny dining room.  I don’t know how I feel about him staring down at me with that one eye, though. 

I swooned over this pretty pillow cover.  I don’t have anyplace to use it right now, but this pillow cover of this royal flamingo is lovely. 

How fun are these flamingo ceramic dishes?  These would be a fun addition to any grazing board, particularly a summer one!  A soft glow will decorate your room with this lovely hand painted flamingo candle holder.  

Colorful Flamingo Rug

Who said flamingos always need to be pink or even coral?  How about this flock of colorful flamingos greeting guests at your front door?

Flamingo on Canvas

Society 6 has so many amazing products from so many talented artists, and this canvas above is no exception.  This would make an impressive impact in any room.

A gray, white and pink flamingo shower curtain adds a dreamy look to a bathroom. 

If you aren’t ready to plaster your walls with flamingos, how about this subtle triptych, a close up of flamingo feathers. 

A change of linens is always a great way to add some flamingo fun and color to your home decor. 

This beautiful wall looks like a custom painted wall, but it is actually a mural you can put up on any wall.  You can also select a number of colors for the mural.

Flamingo Watercolor Pillow cover

This beautiful watercolor image of a flamingo is a work of art on this pillow cover.  This is a pillow that could be tucked onto a front porch swing for a little pop of summer color.Don’t overlook the kitchen, a great place to add some flamingo fun to your decor.  How fun is this cookie jar?  Perhaps you will have to make some flamingo shaped cookies!



When I came across these flamingo salt and pepper shakers, it reminded me of my grandmother who collected salt and pepper shakers.  These would add some fun to the table.

From the kitchen to the bathroom, this elegant bath towel is a more subtle way to add flamingo style to your home.  


Could adding flamingo decor work in your home?

    1. Thanks Dawn. Those dishes are adorable. I guess living in Florida I can get by with a couple of pretty flamingo prints in my bedroom!

      1. I actually saw a flamingo Christmas ornament and I thought of you the other day. I almost bought it for you because it was in a red truck which reminded me of your red truck post. That was before I even read this post 🙂

  1. Absolutely loved your post! Flamingos are my favorite, and all I have is 3 flamingo Christmas ornaments. Would love to have a few of the things you featured here. Great blog idea!

  2. How fun! I have a small Flamingo collection, but I’d love to add those clever plates to the collection. Thanks for the smiles you brought to my face.

  3. Some lovely flamingo wall murals but I do love those plates.

  4. My goodness…I’m a big fan of flamingos and everything here is soooo cute. Those mural and wall papers are awesome indeed.

    1. I know, Indah! I really wish I had a place to put up some of that fabulous wallpaper!

  5. Great ideas. I started flamingos after living in Florida and being told I could not put a hose in for flowers. I brought in truck loads of sand, concrete Flamingos, turtles, frog and lawn chairs. Love it . Was tired of hand watering the flowers.

    1. Seriously, they wouldn’t let you put in a hose!? Glad you made your own little beach!

  6. Oh, I love Flamingos! And I definitely want more of them in my home.

    Though I think I will start with a mug or a necklace, I really like the salt and pepper shakers!

    1. Thanks Caron! I am still debating adding a pair of art prints of them to my bedroom or not!

  7. The pink flamingo wallpaper is glorius, gaudy and over the top. I could see a upcycled armoire or chest with chalk painted exterior (maybe pale pink, maybe aqua or even gray) and this surprise inside.

    1. Oh, that would be so fun, wouldn’t it? Maybe even in the armoire I just re-styled for my bedroom!

  8. Flamingos make me smile BIG! I’ve managed to keep my collection down to about a dozen items — it would be soooo easy to have hundreds. I actually squealed when I saw ‘my’ salt-n-pepper shakers in your collection lol. I love them!

    1. Thank you Earlette! I only have a couple of figurines, a pair of pillows and a pair of prints on the wall, but I am having a chair reupholstered for my bedroom in the most fun flamingo fabric! I will be sharing a tour of my room when I get it all done!

  9. Where can you purchase share with the pink flamingos ?

    1. Thank you Ania! I don’t often do round up posts, but I was really on a flamingo fling last summer!

  10. The flamingos are fantastic, Chloe. I might start with a pillow, though. I don’t have what it takes to go the full monty. (-:

      Barbara, you could get material and cover an old pillow…an have money towards another flamingo thing! I have a flock of in my yard as flamingoes always have a group on, on a website called 3 Florida gals or girls I got a 1940s salt n pepper set plastic. Very vintage,painted and I filled the salt with pink Himalayan salt! Love everybody’s posts on flamingoes and pintrest. Thx.

  11. Chloe, flamingos make me think happy! I couldn’t commit to the wallpaper, but it is fun! The S&P are so cute…Happy Thursday

    1. Thank you Pam, there are so many cute flamingo prints and décor items out there. I think the key is to not going overboard with them!

  12. Fun Chloe, I saw a large metal pink flamingo the other day that I almost bought, to put near the entry of our beach house, it was so cute…now you’ve got me thinking I should go back and get it!!

  13. Such fun ideas, Chloe! My hubby and I actually bought our daughter a flamingo neon sign for Christmas, and that was one of her favorite gifts!

  14. Kathy dedrick says:

    I am also a flamingo lover! They are in every room of my house and outside too! I love those that love flamingos too! I have a beautiful vintage flamingo mirror that I found at a junk store..absolutely love them!

  15. Pamela K Archer says:

    I have been in love with Flamingoes for as long as I can remember. I lived in Florida and the Florida Keys for most of my adult life and love the tropics. I have Several Flamingo paintings, dishes, clock, pillows, towels, and a large back tattoo! I would love to have the mural for my Bathroom! Thanks so much for sharing!!

  16. Hi thank you for this post. My husband and I have decorated our Miami condo with flamingos, flip flops and palm trees. Because of your post I just purchased dishes from Macy’s with flamingos. There is just no stopping our collection of flamingos; statues made from many different medias, artwork, lighting and now dishes and a tray. I have been in love with flamingos since we moved to Florida and thank goodness my hubby shares in my mania.

    1. Oh how fun! I am glad you stopped by! I found the cutest little feathered flamingo that lives in our walk in closet watching over us!
