I’m not a girly girl, I can honestly say that pink has never been my favourite colour but I’ve come to find it quite appealing lately. A dusty pink offset with charcoal grey looks modern and fresh in the home. There’s something about this particular shade that’s mature unlike the princess pinks beloved by so many little girls (and some boys).
For the brave, paint a feature wall in Farrow & Ball’s Calamine, Nancy’s Blushes or Pink Ground, or Dulux’s colour of the year, Copper Blush, it’s a bold statement that’s easy to change if you get bored. For a more subtle approach try textile highlights around your home like plain curtains, linen bed sheets or cushions. Painting an old wooden chair or stool, or a cheap Ikea shelf can also add a hint of colour to a plain room. Ceramics and small decorative details in soft shades of pink look great dotted around or clustered together. Coordinate with brass and Carrara marble details for a look that’s sophisticated.
