Interiors Inspiration - Beautiful Blush

Move over jewel tones, rose quartz is not going down without a fight. Call it what you want Pastel, Powder or Millennial pink, all shades of Blush are easy to use and beautifully on trend. The official Pantone colour of 2016, Blush (or ‘rose quartz’) is well and truly here to stay, finding its way into everything from fashion to decor. The rise of this girly colour has been spurred on by the incredibly Instagram-able Sketch London, the pretty pink haven of Londons premier foodie and arty elite. Not to mention the king of colour Wes Anderson’s ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ which is bursting with interiors inspiration, featuring some of my favourite scenes of Blush Pink.

Styling a Pink Interior

Create a complimentary style with a cool grey or pale blue and blush accessories, this timeless pairing can seem both nostalgic and modern. A dreamy combination that looks effortlessly glamourous, taking inspiration from all the shades of a sunset putting chalky pale blues and pale pinks together with little hints at brighter tones makes for a beautiful room. Doesn’t the Below bedroom just look so enticing?

For a sexier vibe try a contrasting style why not go for something I like to call romantic industrial. Contrasting soft velvets against hard metal or natural wood finishes. This gives the girly pink shade a fierce edge, evoke the golden age of cinema with a sex kitten style of Marilyn Monroe. Crushed Velvet, flocked wallpapers and white furs can create the perfect extravagant boudoir vibe.

 Blush and Black doesn’t need to be over the top to look elegant, this versatile combination can be gorgeous when pared back Blogger Kate La Vie’s home I think is the perfect example of this, she so carefully combines Pink and Black to create a beautiful yet simple look. Her apartment tour is the stuff of dreams!

Blush pink can create a bit of a colour challenge as it has a real reputation for being overly feminine. To overcome this pair shades of blush with warm neutral colours such a mushroom or shades of cream, to tie the look together use natural stone and hints of metallic when dressing the room. The below shot by Boca Do Lobo of their stunning Empire table shows how to perfectly dress a neutral space with blush pink in a way that doesn't make pink the main feature of the look.

You can use hints of Blush Pink in otherwise masculine dominated spaces to soften the space, the below Moss Green room is the perfect example of subtle Pink. The refined look uses Moss Green, Dark Greys and simple styling to make an effortlessly elegant room. These colour combinations work because they are very natural and almost chalky in finish, which helps bring the pallet together.
