 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.
