As nature starts to ‘re-dress’ itself with beautiful pink blossoms and pops of vibrant coloured blooms, both fashion and interiors do too. It’s great to see the soft, blush pinks you’d see on tree blossom and peonies coming back into interior popularity. It’s a good colour for spring coats and shoes, but also such a pretty colour to introduce to your home after the winter months.
Decorating with pink can be daunting, but shades of pink work with almost anything. From wallpapers and fabrics, through to kitchen cupboards and bathroom tiles, you can be as brave as you dare!
Here are my pinky pointers (sorry, I couldn’t resist!), for different ways to incorporate pink into your home interiors…
From bright hot pinks to dusky mineral pink, paired with greenery in whatever form, the combination is uplifting, fresh and very ‘on trend’ right now.
To subtly introduce this combination in your home, you can play around with accessories such as cushions, vases, tableware and plants.
For maximum impact, paint walls or feature walls in one of the hues and use blocks of the contrasting colour in the form of upholstered furniture or window coverings.
The room above looks so fresh and inviting, and note how they’ve used different shades of green and pinks to make it visually interesting.
For a more sophisticated take on the pink trend, opt for a softer pastel shade. It works beautifully with all the shades of grey, or soft sage greens, resulting in atimeless colour scheme.
There are lots of beautiful wallpapers around with this accent colour right now, but if you prefer plain pastel pink walls; accessorising with bold black accessories (such as picture frames and monotone printed fabrics); will help to give your scheme a more contemporary look and feel.
Pink is a fun, vibrant colour which naturally lends itself well to pattern.
A plain pink fabric with a bold pattern overlaid will create a classic, yet fun feel. I’m a big fan of the new Eden collection from Clarke & Clarke featuring a bold printed bumble bee on a plain blush (see above), this looks lovely on the small seat here, but it would also look fabulous on a roman blind or cushion.
Pops of bright pinks on a patterned wallpaper are really striking too, but it will create a much bolder look. Sanderson’s new Glasshouse wallpaper collection has some stunning prints with a range of pinks.
The great thing about interior trends is that you can always commit to it all or just ‘dip your toe in the water’. Hence, my final tip for introducing pink into your home: do just that.
Ease into pink by slowly introducing accessories and statement pieces such as chairs or for the braver; a statement sofa.
Don’t be afraid to mix different tones of pinks together too, even adding red. Shades of different pinks can look sosophisticated.
