Blush pink has been one of the most popular colours over the last 12 months and is still gaining popularity throughout Autumn. This ‘new neutral’, now making a bold statement in the design world, is a fresh alternative to the usual off-white, beige or grey often found throughout our homes.
Blush tones are being used in more sophisticated ways as the seasons progress, whether it’s a statement piece of furniture, accent decor or block painted wall. If you’re nervous about using this popular shade, try teaming it with muted neutrals for a more relaxed look.
Here are some of our top pieces to incorporate this colour into your home:

A touch of pink can go a long way when it comes to furniture. If you don’t want to go with the bold pink velvet sofa we’re seeing everywhere at the moment, opt for smaller statement arm chairs or side tables.

If you want to play it safe and inject this colour into your home, using soft furnishings and smaller decor is the perfect option. These pieces don’t necessarily have to match other elements in the room, blush pink looks great with grey tones and greens or coordinate with brass and marble for a more sophisticated look. We found some great blush pink options from The Conran Shop, Marks & Spencer and John Lewis.
