There’s a new trend in the interior design world. Let’s hear it for the beautifully understated and underused colour that is baby pink.
Hear me out! Long gone are the days when pink was purely the province of the teen bedroom. The colour has finally grown up and I’m sold.
Although baby pink might not be the first colour that springs to mind when it comes to updating your space, it’s a beautiful shade to incorporate into your home – and here’s why:
It adds warmth to neutral spaces
If you’re a lover of neutral palettes and your home is a fabulous concoction of creams, beiges, and whites – pops of baby pink could help inject some extra warmth.
That’s because pink is a secondary colour and a combination of red and white. So it comes with a handful of red’s warming characteristics, just in a more subdued manner.
It’s colour without being obtrusive
Is your space missing something? Could that something be a touch of colour? Even in large quantities, baby pink is the unobtrusive underdog that continues to hold its own. You can inject this shade into your space without fully committing to colour.
At Furnishing Studios we love the washable linen fabric collection from Romo, called Linara. The best-selling collection is an exquisite cotton-linen blend with a beautiful brushed finished. It’s exceptionally soft, luxurious in quality and super durable. Making it ideal for high traffic spaces, such as living rooms, bedrooms and kitchens.
To give you some inspiration, here’s how we’d incorporate this hue here, there and everywhere.
Draw on it for your curtains
Got a big window that needs dressing? Baby pink curtains would look beautiful, especially if you’ve got a big expanse of curtaining in a neutral setting.
The shade helps to reflect the light, bring colour to dark or sparse spaces and warmth to cool ones.
Revamp your sofa
Depending on your lifestyle and usage, baby pink could work very well as a sofa covering. And the best thing is, you don’t have to buy a whole new sofa to get the look.
Loose covers – removable fitted cloth covers for a sofa or chair – are a speciality at Furnishing Studios. They are all tailored to fit exactly and can breathe new life into a much loved but perhaps worn piece of furniture.
Scatter those cushions
We can make scatter cushions in a range of shapes and sizes to complement your room. They are all handmade and come with their own feather pads. This is a great way to dip your toe in with a new colour.
Rest that weary head
Fabric headboards are all the rage and a fabulous way to bring a luxurious feel to your bedroom. A pale pink headboard could be used to complement your colour scheme or provide an interesting contrast. Either way, it makes for a beautiful boudoir. There are a variety of options in terms of finish and, if you decide to redecorate, fabric headboards can easily be recovered.
Josie from Furnishing Studios says: “Try treating baby pink as a neutral and you’ll be surprised by how easy it is to weave into your home. And with stunning results.”
