Why everybody is obsessed with blush pink!

I have never been a “pink person”. I’m not a girly girl and I never played with Barbies.

BUT…

I have now fallen in love with blush dusky pink. It is everywhere at the moment and I am seeing multiple converts to this soft shade.

My friends and family know I always swerve the colour and it has just never appealed to me. So why now? Why is this dusky blush tone of pink suddenly so popular amongst those who usually shy away it?

In 2016, Pantone had its first double combination for colour of the year. Rose Quartz & Serenity. Since then, dusky blush pink has rose in popularity.

I have an inkling that the reason dusky pink is featuring more and more in interior design for the home is due to the fact it is actually quite a versatile colour. Blush pink is soft and serene and works well with a whole host of colours. This means that dusky pink can be introduced into your home without changing the whole colour scheme.

In my opinion, a home should be comfortable homely and always show off your personality. The design of your rooms should suit how you want to feel in the space. When using this dusky and blush coloured pink, you can add a certain warmth which is hard to replicate with any other colour. The blush pink colour is popular because it enhances the neutrals in a space and adds colour which doesn’t steal the show but highlights the features in the room.

The second reason why this dusky blush pink is such a major trend for 2017 is that it is the perfect colour combination with the rich green tones of foliage.

And dusky pink is the perfect partner in crime.
