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.

A beautiful tropical print pillow featuring flamingoes is a great way to add a little summer fun to your home.  


This beautiful chair would look lovely in a modern Miami high rise.  This chair would draw a lot of focus, so it would need to be balanced with the rest of the furniture and decor.

Flamingo dishes in black and white

This beautiful set of dishes comes from an artist in England who creates these lovely images on bone china.  If flamingo decor isn’t your thing, check out her owl and giraffe dishes!

If you like the silhouette but not the color, add these elegant white flamingo candle holders to your tabletop!   

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.

Gold flamingo on a navy and white shower curtain

A navy and white shower curtain with an elegant gold flamingo would make a nice addition to a beachy or nautical home without adding that punch of pink.

Flamingo Tropical Wallpaper

If you are looking to add a punch of color to your home, you can’t go wrong with this bright, pastel print wallpaper featuring tropical flowers and flamingos.

Margaritaville Flamingo Linens

More proof that decorating with flamingos don’t have to come in pink, this fun navy and white duvet set by Margaritaville can add a fun but tasteful look to your bedroom or guest room.

Pink Flamingo Mural

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.

Flamingo Tiles

Over at IXXI Design, if flamingos are your thing, then you could have these tiles designed for you, but if your designs lean toward something else, IXXI can put anything on a tile for you.  You might want to check out their website for all the amazing inspiration.

Flamingo Salt and Pepper Shakers

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.

Flock of Flamingos Wallpaper

This pink flamingo wallpaper is really calling my name.  I have textured walls, but I am wondering where I might use this luscious paper.  The soft feathers and the shades of pink look quite girly, but I don’t care, I LOVE it!  I may add the salt and pepper shakers and I may find some way to incorporate some wallpaper, but what am I adding for sure?

Flamingo prints

These beautiful prints by artist, Suren Nersisyan are finding a home in my new master bedroom.  I still have to decide if I want them as stretched canvas or framed, but I can’t wait to get my walls painted and get this artwork up on them.

Could adding flamingo decor work in your home?

Flamingos just seem like fun to me, and a world away from Winter!

    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. (-:

    1. Linda hightower says:

      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!
