Think pink...


Since buying some baby pink linen cushions a few weeks ago, I am obsessed with this girly shade. I had hoped this rosy hue would slip back into vogue, and I am pleased to report it has. Most of us are not brave with colour, when it comes to our homes. We live with neutrals, such as cream, beige and white. However, it's time to consider pink as an exciting addition to that safe palette, and did I mention, it also happens to blend perfectly with grey, black and blue. Pink in shades of marshmallow, fuchsia and rose - are making a big comeback. Here are some of my favourite pink rooms, and tips on how to add pink to any interior space.

 

Make pink a statement shade: You don’t have to have an all-girl environment to add pink to your home. Choose a pink piece of furniture, textured fabric or artwork, and add it to any existing interior.

Top tips:

The easiest way to add pink: Is with a selection of pillows, throws or fresh flowers, they offer just the right amount of colour, to update any living or bedroom space.

Make pink curtains or a feature the focal point: Painting a wall, door or adding pale pink curtains is a fast and affordable way to add soft colour to any neutral space.

Clash your colour: Don’t stick with just one shade of pink. Experiment by mixing pastel pink, and bright fuchsia, or dark muddy-mauve pinks, with a pale rose.

Mix and match pink patterns: From vintage florals to bold graphic patterns, mix and match pink fabrics and wall coverings, the more texture you can find, the better.
