Pink is having something of a moment. The first sneak peeks of the upcoming live-action Barbie movie, starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling as every girl’s favourite doll couple saw a plethora of pinks hit the catwalks over summer. And October is traditionally the month where we’re encouraged to ‘Wear it Pink’ for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so once again the hue is at the forefront of our minds.
Pink has been a rising star in the interiors world in recent years. No longer the preserve of baby girls’ nurseries, pink in all its guises has been seen in every room of the trendiest of homes. Blush pink has become a legitimate neutral option, while shades of fuschia, cerise and raspberry offer a statement accent to any contemporary decor scheme.
Kitchens and bathrooms, especially, have seen an influx of pink-inspired design, with tiles, paint and even baths, sinks and cabinetry in various sweet hues blending perfectly with accessories in luxe muted brass and gold, or modern matte black.
Splashes of pink here and there will add a playful element to your decor, while if you want to embrace all things Barbie, incorporate a range of shades to maximise the effect.
