Sometimes I just crush on a colour and sometimes I crush on a combination and right now I’m loving all things yellow and pink. I always try and encourage people to have fun with colour and be experimental and creative with it. This cute combination is playful, creating a feeling of happiness and delight. Yellow is the colour of optimism after all and pink can never really be taken too seriously, although together I think they can look seriously cool. Opting chalky dirty plaster pink, like Setting plaster by Farrow and Ball for example, and then slicing that with a zinging almost neon yellow is what really ticks my box! Yellow cake by Farrow and Ball or Trumpet by Little Greene are both great zesty yellows which would make a great accent in a dirty soft pink scheme.
Pale pinks have been so fashionable interiors for what feels like forever, and it’s such a gorgeous colour to live with because it’s soft, warm and nurturing. It felt quite edgy to begin with as an interiors trend but I’d argue now that we have come to accept it as almost neutral. I’m told even the men are on board, especially with the warmer more nude pinks. Pink looks elegant with warm terracotta, sophisticated with navy and has found its perfect partnership with green. But it’s yellow that really makes it feel fresh and new again.
