From flamingo tiles in bathrooms to blush velvet armchairs and even rosy Macbooks, pink has taken the interiors world by storm. This isn’t your gender specific “it’s a girl!” pink of the 80s and 90s, or the over-the-top Barbie pink that conjures up images of Legally Blonde stereotypes.

Pink is one of the most versatile colours in interiors. With so many shades and even more applications – walls, furnishings and décor to name a few – it can easily be incorporated in a home – no matter the taste or style.

Look at the luscious velvet on this Freedom armchair! 

Whether you love it or hate it, there’s no denying the power of pink; depending on the colours it’s combined with, this feminine hue has the ability to bring elegance and comfort to any living space.

Why not pair pink with white for a luxurious delicate feel? Or add grey to invoke chic-Scandi appeal. You can go bold with a deeper shade to create a statement or simply replace an existing neutral with softer pinks to produce instant warmth.

Don’t these Mongolian beauties just make you want to cosy up on the couch?

The key is to balance colours. Use pink as a focal point and be careful not to overdo it. Too much pink can quickly turn “classy” into “creepy” – nobody really wants their interior to look like an obsessed teenager’s bedroom, right?

You don’t need a wall to add a dash of pink to your vertical space

Not sure where to start? Why not experiment a little by sprucing up your walls. Whether it be a can of paint in Millennial pink, some funky wallpaper or a beautiful framed print, this hot hue is the perfect excuse to try something a little different in your home.
