Colour Palette of the Month: February


Red is dead, blue is through, 
Green’s obscene, brown’s taboo. 
And there is not the slightest excuse for plum or puce 
—or chartreuse. Think pink!
-Funny Face

If you’ve had a chance to browse the latest home decor news stands, you may have left either confused or singing “Think Pink” from Funny Face. Either way, nearly every cover has somehow incorporated a shade of pink!

When I first saw that pink was making a comeback, my mind instantly went to memories of floral pink sofas and pink lace-heart wallpaper (That was definitely in my kitchen at one-point). I was mildly horrified, but once I started checking out how designers were using pink, I warmed up to the idea! I’m not sure that I am quite ready to paint the walls in fusia, but accessorizing could definitely be fun!

These designers cleverly added a few splashes of glam to otherwise neutral palettes, which could be the best route to go. The more intense shades of pink are balanced with neutral furniture, while the muted shades are incorporated in patterned key features.

Grey has always been pink’s best friend. These soft tones pair really well with both modern and natural elements.

 

All of us know too much blush is rarely a good thing, but these powder rooms have just enough to look unique without looking too much like Barbie’s corvette! Plus, how “Adorable” is a painted pink door!

Can you think pink or will this trend end along with the post-Vday chocolate sales?

P.S. Happy Valentine’s Day!
