Has pink finally shaken off its girly status? Blush pink is popping up everywhere at the moment and we are living for it.
Blush pink has previously been a well liked colour and (thankfully) it still seems to be that way. Taking the interior world by storm, it’s quickly becoming one of our favourite colours in 2019 so far. If you haven’t already noticed, the colour is being used on everything; from sofas, accent chairs, doors, accessories, rugs, even tiles… Honestly, the list really does go on. It’s showing us just how versatile and the colour is.
Blush is thought to be a comfort colour, associating itself with love and kindness as well as providing a calming effect. Together with being such a happy colour, it can be used in many different ways and work in any room due to it being such a soft pale hue.
If you’re not quite convinced to commiting to this trend with a pink overhaul, start in moderation by adding blush coloured cushions or throws. Even using subtle hints of the colour in patterned fabrics will give you enough colour to help you to make your mind up. It’s worth a try - you might even find that it helps to tie everything together in your home.
Personally our favourite way to use this palette of pink is by incorporating bolder colours. Using blush pink with contrasting darker tones, such as charcoal greys or black, will create a balance. In a similar way to white, the warmth of the blush compliments darker colours, taking away the edge and coldness. This colour scheme will help to soften the overall look of a room as well adding glamour.
Another great colour that works with blush pink is minty green. This particular shade of green is yet another beautiful colour on its own, but when paired with blush, helps to create a chic and sophisticated room. What more could you want?
‘Dare to think pink’. You won’t regret it.
