Decorating with pink

Whether your style is romantic or mod, pink provides the perfect dash of feel-good colour


Tip: Combined with loads of white and chrome accents, pale pastel pink becomes very sleek and contemporary; try a stronger shade with orange for a vibey tropical look or use a touch of deep fuchsia to glam up a black and white scheme.


French decor

For a look that’s cool and elegant, start with a neutral shell furnished with linen-covered sofas and chairs and then bring in cushions and accessories in soft pinks that tinge on lilac.


Decor with roses

Take a leaf out of Tricia Guild’s book and combine stripes and over-scaled florals for a look that’s pure garden room – feminine, soft and very contemporary.


Sofa with pink scatter cushions

Surprisingly one of the best colours to combine with pink is orange. Used together, these two shades create a vibrancy that’s both striking and appealing – a dash of orange also cuts the sweetness of a pink scheme.
