This month at Harrods, we are celebrating all things pink, whether that’s in beauty, fashion or of course, interiors… At some of the New York Fashion Week Spring 2016 shows, I noticed how flushed pink was prominent for lips, cheeks and eyes, very much confirming that blush is back!
I loved the influence of blush pink in Chanel’s most recent Spring 2017 Haute Couture Show. What a gorgeous combination, blush pink and gunmetal grey…. feminine yet edgy. I love, love, love…
Pink fashion choices have made their way from the realms of chintz and childhood to sophisticated elegance. This season, its time for blush interiors to do the same. Bring in blush with a statement piece or use it as an accent throughout a scheme, here are my top tips for incorporating the blush trend into any space.
Blush as a Neutral
Blush pink works very well as a neutral and is a great alternative to grey and beige. I, for one, like the warmth that blush pink brings to an interior.
I also like the idea of bringing blush through in a more subtle way. In the the Shamsian collection by Bethan Gray, I particularly like the versatility of the colour palette that was used. Muted, feminine blush tones have been combined with more masculine and saturated colours. Subtle touches of blush were incorporated through the finishes.
House of Hackney x William Morris recently collaborated to create Artemis, a vintage wallpaper design featuring hand painted wild flowers on a blush background … to recreate a vintage style with blush, think pink in total abundance – velvet, painted blush walls and fluffy pink rugs.
For Design Miami, Fendi X Cristina Celestino created the #Happy Room, a travelling VIP room. They used a palette of pinks, blues and greens to create a feeling of warmth. There is a definite inspiration from Italy in the 50’s… La Dolce Vita in Miami – I look forward to visiting their room at Salon del Mobile Milan…
