Have you always thought pink is a bit sickly sweet for you? It had never been my cup of rosy lee, but just lately I’ve become a blush pink convert. It’s that particular shade that keeps catching my eye, a powdery tone that reminds me of polished plaster.
This sweet shade has had somewhat of a makeover lately, giving it a bit more of an edge. By combining it with strong tones such as deep, inky blues, black and grey or industrial finishes like concrete, copper and zinc; it’s gone from pretty pretty, to pretty cool!
Of course those effortlessly stylish Scandi’s were ahead of the game; for design brands Muuto and Normann Copenhagen it’s been one of the key colours within their ranges since 2013 and it continues to feature within Ferm Living and Bloomingville’s homeware collections season after season.
Varying shades of soft pink, from rose to blush and nude, feature throughout all the colour palettes for the 2015 trend predictions by Dulux (Copper Blush being their pick of the year), but it has to be the Powder Pink that is spot on for me.
It also features within Crown’s 2015 trend predictions, in particular the soft, rosy tone, Pashmina, within their ‘Freedom of Expression’ trend, which is paired with strong shades of aubergine, bright turquoise and bold sea blue.
