Subtle and sophisticated, this elegant shade of pink has just enough grey in its base to keep it understated and grown-up. A beautiful choice for any room in your home.

 Using colour in the home

Subtle and sophisticated, this elegant pink has just enough grey in its base to keep it understated and grown-up. It works well in a tonal scheme with warm coral and red-wine hues, especially when grounded with a dark grey or blue anchor.

Crisp white is a natural partner for blush pink, but the effect will be sweet and floral. Introduce a dark shade for balance: pencil grey can create an industrial feel, while furniture and accessories with strong black outlines will give a sleek, contemporary finish.

In a simple pink, white and grey scheme, introduce texture by experimenting with materials. Use tiles in tonal red and coral for a kitchen or bathroom, or incorporate white marble, grey wooden flooring and rose-gold fixtures and fittings, all of which will blend seamlessly with your palette.

Blush pink is a muted, dusty tone, so if you’re looking for accent colours, opt for those with a faded appearance. Misty light blue or lilac are good complements, as are antiqued emerald green and soft oatmeal brown.
