Blush, that soft, delicate pink that you are seeing in all the interior magazines right now is certainly on trend, we personally love this look in the right space, but it is not for everyone.
It can be a fine line between creating an elegant accent and channelling ‘Malibu Barbie’, so if you are thinking about ‘blushing’ your home, take a look at our tips on introducing this stylish colour in 3 simple ways:
1. Introduce with accessories
We love using blush with soft furnishing, throws, cushions, curtains, rugs and bedlinen are the perfect way to add a dash of soft pink without committing to anything too permanent. Textured and rich fabrics like velvet add an extra dimension and depth to the space to give an ultra-luxurious feel. Pink crystals, such as rose quartz, are another way to add blush with the added benefit of a crystal sparkle. Rose quartz is also known as the crystal of unconditional love and is said to boost feelings of self-love and foster loving relationships with others – just another good reason to introduce soft pink into your interiors!
Another great non-permanent way to add this tone to your space is with accessories like vases, votives, art or lamp shades. These items can also be quite cost effective, so you won’t break the bank by adding a splash of pink.
2. Pair with metallics
Right now, we are loving the combination of metallic with blush and we aren’t the only ones. Gold and rose gold are great paired with soft pink. Incorporate with metallic accessories like votives, candles, trays or opt for gold hardware lighting coupled with a dash of blush like a lamp shade. Gold trim mirrors or gold frames are another subtle and chic way to add gold in the mix, put together with a blush print or abstract artwork. Finally, gold hardware furniture is so classic and elegant you simply can’t go wrong, think coffee tables, side tables and even chair legs, all beautiful pieces to introduce in your home and pair with soft pinks.
3. Choose a Statement Piece
A standout furniture piece like a bold blush bedhead, armchair or ottoman creates a beautiful, subtle and feminine feature in the room. Our recommendation is to select the right statement piece for your home first and then style the room around that. A bold piece like this pairs nicely with neutral tones of white or soft grey, however charcoal and darker greys can also create a nice contrast with softer tones. Again, velvet seems to be a popular choice with blush furniture and rightly so given its luxe feel and texture.
