Colour crush: Pale pink

Colour crush: Pale pink
For any of you following me on Instagram stories you’ll know that the only colour I’m obsessing about right now is pale pink. Its been so fashionable in Interior Design for the past couple of years it’s almost on it’s way to being the new beige. ‘Blush’ and ‘nude’ have been the types of lingo used to rebrand our favourite sugary shade.

I’m so thrilled that my Mum is up for having a pink bedroom in the new Annex we’re currently renovating. It’s the perfect colour choice as it’s a really relaxing, cosseting and nurturing colour so spot on for a place where you want to rejuvenate. Sadly its become labelled ‘girly’ so for many of us husbands give it the veto. I know mine has. But my Mum is however building her own home and for the first time in her life making all the deisgn decisions for herself. It’s a wonderful experience for her.

So a pink bedroom it is, but getting the right hue, really hard!  Anything towards lilac looks too fresh and chilly for a bedroom and anything to warm could nudge over to peach. And my Mum already did peach in the 80’s and is not ready for the re run. I’ll keep you posted here and on Instagram on how we get on with our pink seeking mission. Meanwhile here is some pink inspiration.

This image just goes to show that pink doesn’t have to look frilly or girly. The rather grand architecture is softened by this perfect shade and I love how the curtains match in with the walls.

This is such a super subtle pink you barely notice it. It’s Middleton Pink by Farrow and Ball and is a very fresh and pretty colour. Pairing it with sleek mid century furniture and soft greys creates a very sophisticated look indeed. I’m also loving the dark wood floor and furniture that lifts the otherwise pastel scheme.

Isn’t this kitchen just absolutely to die for. I love to see pink in a kitchen as it’s rather unexpected. Here its teamed with darks, black and gold, a colour palette made in heaven. And loving the cheeky pop of blue, so unexpected in the corner. This room looks very Calamine from Farrow and ball to me which has been a huge favourite with you guys over on Instagram.
I’ve had this image on my Pinterest boards for years. While its a bit trad for my tastes I just love the soothing vibe this soft pink creates, with the clever darker grey pink on the ceiling. The white furniture and mirrored furniture is all it needs to lift the look.

There are so many things I love about this image. First up it’s styled by my girl crush, Stylist Emily Henderson. Secondly its sharing my love of pale pink with black but if that wasn’t sexy enough some gold brass is thrown in too. Super cool and just how pink should be. Soft but sexy.

So as you can see there is no shortage of pink love out there. I’ll keep you posted with how we get on on our quest for the perfect hue. And if you have any advice on how you find the perfect pink, please don’t hesitate to leave me your comments below.
