Once rarely seen outside of girls bedrooms, pink has been enjoying a well-deserved resurgence in popularity, increasingly becoming the modern, go-to shade for every room in the home.  

In support of Breast Cancer Now’s Wear it Pink campaign we want to show you how a once underappreciated colour can reimagine the grown up spaces in your home so you can feel confident to use it everywhere.

From coral to blush and pale to dusky, pink is a universally flattering colour that can be used for bathrooms, dining rooms and living rooms if you follow a few simple tips.

TOP TIP 1

Pink pairs perfectly with natural and darker woods, leather and vintage pieces of furniture. Stick with clean lines and avoid frilly or fussy soft furnishings and pink forms the perfect backdrop for statement wall decor and lighting.

TOP TIP 2

Take typically feminine floral patterns and pair with a deeper colour like navy blue for a bold look that shouts sophistication. Combine pale pink with emerald greens for a really grown up retro kitsch vibe. Warmer wood tones or leather upholstery also work nicely against the richer colour palette.

TIP 3

Think pink, think trendy tropicals. Fresh and modern, this lively print is the epitome of hawaiian happiness and works really well in bathrooms and kitchen diners. Ideal for a feature wall style with lots of indoor plants for added lushness.

TOP TIP 4 

Metallics and pinks will always work. Aim for gold and copper tones for a cohesive look and add complementary accessories for a fun yet grown-up feel.

TOP TIP 5

For a feeling of calm and serenity pair pink with neutral furnishings and decor and natural textures for a slightly scandinavian, slight bohemian feel that is timeless and restorative.

TOP TIP 6

Pink and green can be used to add grandeur to period features whether it is high ceilings or wood panelled bathrooms. The combination of pink and green adds sumptuousness whilst being soothing.
