Blush Crush

You just need to take a stroll thru your closet shopping mall to see that Pink is a big trend when it comes to fashion at the moment.

 

Worried that this colour might be a bit too “Barbie dolls” bedroom for you?  Here are some ideas on how to bring pink into your interior that is adult-like, sophisticated and cool.

 

1. Pair with Complimentary colours

Personally I think the key to pulling off pink in an interior is what you pair it with.  Pairing pink with brass or gold accents always looks good. As does contrasting it with a dark colour such as a navy blue or deep moss green. And of course my fav charcoal!

2. Use Pink in a small areas

Adding pink in a small space such as on the wall in your entrance hall or guest loo makes a statement without too much investment.  Here you can go intense with the colour or pattern as you don’t spend too much time in the space, and it really ups the ante on the wow factor – two areas which you want to do just that!

3. Accessorize with pink

For a really quick and easy fix, bring in pink with new accessories. Whether its crockery on display in your kitchen or a gorgeous pendant light, this is a simple way to adopt this trend and less permanent too.   Scatter cushions of course are another way to bring in blushy hues, that can easily be replaced next season.

4. Bigger furniture pieces

For a more dramatic look, incorporate pink on larger pieces of furniture.  In a beautiful fabric, a couch becomes a beautiful feature.

5. Strong architectural lines

A contemporary interior with strong, bold lines is the best to pull of large amounts of pink as the masculinity of the space I think balances out the femininity associated with the colour.  I also think contemporary lines help make pink feel fresh in a space.

I would  have to say, my favourite shade: candy pink on my lips, and a soft blush paired with charcoal in an interior!
