think (pale) pink

Summer is coming you can almost feel it! it’s the perfect time to play with colour in your home.

Soft pale pink has been popping up on my radar for a little while. I love soft, faded pastel shades and pink is it! don’t be afraid of a little pink!

Pink can scare some of us, seen by many as feminine and too pretty but Im not afraid of a little pink at home and I even have a favourite soft pink shirt!

Here is my Pink Edit in store and online from Country Road and 5 tips to working with pink at home.

1. Get the shade right, Pink isn’t always the easiest shade to decorate with its all in selecting the right pink. Soft pale pink is easy to work with consider it almost a neutral, It adds a freshness and calming vibe to any space. I prefer softer shades to loud or bubblegum varieties but you be the judge of how much pink you think.

2. Add a little, don’t go pink crazy (well unless you LOVE it!) a little goes a long way, perfect to add a hint of pink with fresh flowers or table ware to brighten up your day.

3. Pink and grey are best friends, pink and all shades of grey go great together, think textiles and cushions for your sofa or for the bedroom.

4 . As with all colours try before you buy, just like your wardrobe ease into a new colour remembering if pink works in your wardrobe ( or as a go to lip colour) it can also work at home too!

5. Make Pink modern and sophisticated, it’s really easy to make pink look a little dated, forget the frills and lace and floral motifs, instead think bold geometric shapes, sophisticated ceramics and clean lines.
