From the softest blush to a punch in the gut shocking hue, pink - a colour once consigned to little girl’s bedrooms is back!
In Fabrics, wallpapers and paints pink is a hot trend right now – and what better time to celebrate this glorious colour than February!
Farrow and Ball launched Peignoir (£39.50 for 2.5L – available from FRI) last year; a grey pink with a romantic feel which has quickly become one of their best sellers.
Pink looks great in just about every room –
it can be very flattering on skin tone, making it the perfect colour for bathrooms or dressing rooms.
It is equally at home making a grand statement – So try using pink on the walls or for soft furnishings to make an exciting first impression in an entrance hall.
If you are worried pink may make your room seem too feminine try pairing it with darker colours such as navy or forest green. This will give a fresh, grown up feel.
Or mix it up with bold patterns and artwork
Another effective use of pink is to use it as a neutral in your scheme. A soothing shade of pink brings colour while also perfectly balancing neutral undertones.
