How to Use Blush in Interiors

Not only is blush (or ‘Rose Quartz) the colour of the year, but I am totally obsessed with this colour in interiors right now. It brings such warmth and softness to a room. However, it’s a colour that needs to be done right, to avoid creating a baby girl’s bedroom look. 
‘Less is more’ is definitely the way to go with using blush within interiors, so I’ve put together a few ways to add some peachy goodness to your space without over-doing it, and which can be easily changed up down the track. Plus there are a few subtle ways you can sneak this beautiful colour into your home without your other half noticing that suddenly there are accents of pink wherever he looks…
Textiles
I adore the look of crushed, stonewashed nude linen. However a whole pink duvet cover or sheets is quite full-on (and feminine), so I am lusting over some pink pillowcases to mix and match with our current grey and white linen sheets. I am loving these. Also this gorgeous blush throw draped over the end of the bed or sofa adds the perfect touch of pink.

Paint
Rather than covering an entire room in blush paint, I looove the idea of a pastel pink door! Wishing I had a beautiful front door to paint right now. Other ideas are painting just one wall, a couple of shelves, or a wooden chair/table.

Ceramics
This is one of the easiest ways to bring blush into your kitchen by just buying a couple of gorgeous blush mugs to drink your coffee from, or a beaut Le Creuset dish – pink rhubarb & apple crumble anyone? I am utterly in love with Suite One Studio at the moment, just take a look at their website for yourself and you’ll know what I’m on about.

Art
This might be a more permanent way of using blush within your home, but this tone goes with so many other colours that it looks so beautiful within paintings/prints/patterns. Ashley Goldberg is one of my favourite artists/designers who often uses pastel pinks in her work and it is so fun and contemporary. I adore this woven wall hanging by Maryanne Moodie. I think the way it is styled  in the photo keeps it modern.

    It is indeed a really great shade! My favourite colour is green, but I enjoy the occasional pink, and somehow your pictures are having a calming effect on me. It’s really soft, and laid back, you know?
