When it comes to the colours you might use alongside one of our pinks, there are a few directions you could head in – and our suggestions below are far from your only possibilities.
If it’s a neutral you’re looking for, we’d opt for Salt which is the white in our collection designed to complement the ‘Spice’ palette to which our warmest colours (including Pink Peppercorn) belong. Another option would be to go for a slightly darker neutral like Dove Grey, which looks particularly lovely with Old Rose because they both share the same earthy character.
At the other end of the scale are dark greys and blues – Shale, Smoke, Charcoal and Ink – which will lend pink a more modern, more dramatic feel. Try these on woodwork such as skirting, doors and window frames alongside pink on the walls.
Similarly, we love the look of pink and purple together. That might sound like a recipe for a little girl’s bedroom, but not so when you choose shades that have complexity and depth to them. Our paint colour Clove, which is a purple-tinted brown, fits the bill. The living room corner shot where we’ve combined it with an Isla Old Rose armchair is case in point. With the addition of plenty of greenery, natural textures and modern black-bronze accents, it’s anything but juvenile.
