In the pink: new ways to work it

Don’t underestimate the power of pink

From pale and neutral to hot, Miami hues, everyone from London restaurant Sketch and Skye Gyngell’s Spring are using Audrey Hepburn’s favourite colour.

Warm up your home with these effortless new ways to decorate with pink.

The power of pink

Dip-dyed works beautifully in homes and this cool grey living room benefits from the addition of rosy striped curtains and a tonal-gradient floor rug.

Shape up

Striking geometric wallpaper becomes the eye-catching backdrop for rustic, washed-wood furniture and a blush-coloured chandelier.

Romantic style

Replace blues with pinks and channel beach-house chic with this soothing bedroom. Set against wood-panelled walls and rough-wood furniture and finish the look with rosy furnishings, to ensure a bourdoir that’s both relaxed and romantic.

Mix it up

Pastel pink, lilac and gold look glamorous when teamed with black flooring and furniture. The patterned silk panels and matching chandelier complete the look.

Shine on

Pink complements metallic accents so well. Shades of pink with touches of grey, blacks and greens create a contemporary look while keeping the living room space feel bright and warm.

Country style

Pink and white gingham material adds some country charm to the sleek marble sink and contemporary free-standing bath.

Go natural

This traditional bedroom scheme has a natural look, with pastel pink and duck egg blue bedlinen and a neutral headboard.
