Pick up an interior design magazine, or log into Pinterest, and you’ll notice that everything is… pink. This color is the shade of the moment. But it might not be the cutesy pastel or hot pink that you’re thinking of. Let’s take a look at how to incorporate pink into your home and office designs, for a subtle, modern effect.
Combining pink with modern materials
Designers are experimenting with using pink on new materials. Instead of restricting pink to fabrics or paint, they’re testing out more industrial materials.
For example, you’ll notice a whole lot of metalwork and appliances in rose gold or pinkish copper. And in one Manhattan bakery, architects have even introduced pink cement.
Here’s an easy way to add pink to your design – without going overboard. Contrast a pink accent wall with more neutral colors, such as classic white plaster or grey stone work.
Antique tiles and textiles
The vintage trend isn’t going anywhere. Now, interior designers are turning to antique tiles and fabrics to get a luxurious effect. Take a look at the dazzling colors of hydraulic tiles from Barcelona, or look into vintage cloth for curtains and upholstery.
Pink home appliances and accessories
If you already love pink, then here’s a way to enjoy the color without overwhelming the rest of your design. Stick to classic, neutral colors for your kitchen or bathroom design – then fill it in with pink appliances and accessories.
