With Valentines Day next week it seems a perfect time to explore the appeal of this colour trend. Pink has been on the radar for a while now – together with Serenity, Rose Quartz was Pantone® colour of the year in 2016. This year there is lot of this colour on the High Street and it remains very popular in interiors.

Blush is a soft warm shade that combines well with neutral, in particular grey but it also looks good with blue. If Rose Quartz and Serenity are too pale for your taste, pair blush with navy for a stronger look. Blush also softens metallics such cooper, brass and gold.

Make blush a feature wall either with paint or wall paper

From the Icons Collection the Palm Leaves print is simple yet striking, This bold print adds a wow to any wall. The Alabaster Pink and Mint colour palette provides an update on retro Miami cool and would combine beautifully with Blush 267 paint from Little Greene. This muted, rosy tone would also combine well with dark colours, to create a stronger statement.

Pick a statement item of furniture 

A striking piece of furniture such as a sofa, armchair or footstool is an easy way to introduce a style update.


We love the retro feel of this Moby two seater sofa from in Vintage Pink. Upholstered in velvet it has a luxurious feel and the collection includes a chair and footstool.

Lighting is a also a great way to make a statement.

Modern vibrant bedding in shades of pinkblue and yellow Based on a fabric design in the  Lohko collection from Scion Tetra is an abstract interpretation of a graphic tree printed onto fabric. The colour palette of mint and hessian gives the bedding a fresh feel as Spring approaches. Accesorise with the Papillo Cushion and throw with their ivory scroll pattern with turquoise stitches on a coral base piped with turquoise from Harlequin. Or the sumptuous mohair magnolia and blossom throw from Sanderson

While you might not immediately consider pink in a kitchen, a splashback combining pink and grey tiles will lift a grey scheme. The Ourika tile at Fired Earth is from the Marrakesh range of traditional Arabesque and Mediterranean designs. A hand made, hand decorated, glazed terracotta tile with uneven edges and an undulating surface.
