Trend: Pink & Green

If there are two colours which have dominated interior design over the last year, it’s pink and green. Millennial Pink has been the Instagram darling of 2017 and the botanical craze with the proliferation of plants in our homes have led to a colour combination that’s bang on trend.

While the look is really suited to just about any interior design style, today, I’m sharing a few different ways to incorporate this stunning combo into your home.

Contemporary Romantic

You might recall I recently redesigned my mother-in-law’s home to create a contemporary romantic look which is both comfortable and feminine. Using soft greys and natural oak for the main pieces of furniture, the soft pinks tones were picked up in the artwork and the cushions and the greenery provided a natural element that tied the look together.

Glamorous Traditional

Using accessories to bring in trends are always a great way to try them out before committing to something more permanent like a larger piece of furniture or a wall colour. They can easily be mixed and matched to refresh your home in any season.

If you are looking for something a little bolder, consider using wallpaper panels to create height and drama in this beautiful combination. Here, our Shay range works beautifully against Chinoiserie-inspired panels with pink and green vintage style elements and soft pink cushions complete the look.

As a subtle nod to this trend, consider just using a few soft pink accessories and greenery for the perfect finishing touch in any neutral space.

Bold Botanical

Want a more intense look for this theme? In my own living room, I’ve used a similar palette but in combination with a bold botanical wallpaper from Sian Zeng. Combine the pale pink with berry shades alongside darker olive and forest greens for a bold interpretation of this style.

Sophisticated Eclectic

I fell for 2 Lovely Gay’s subtler interpretation of this trend in their sitting room design. With an eclectic mix of both traditional and contemporary pieces, the combination of pale pink and mint green almost act as neutrals in this light and airy space.

Contemporary Cool

For a refined contemporary take, consider using a pale green on the walls and accent with colour blocks in pink in the soft furnishings and artwork. This colour is both soothing and relaxing, perfect for a bedroom as seen here with our Canterbury Range.

Far East Inspired

And finally, consider combining pinks and greens with darker colours for an Asian-inspired look that’s anything but ordinary. Here, Karen from Making Spaces created a relaxing retreat with Little Green’s Upper Brook Street wallpaper and echoed the design’s floral pattern with peachy pinks and Kelly green.

As you can see, there are lots of ways to get this beautiful colour combination in your own home, no matter what your style. How will you be using pink and green in your home this year? We’d love to see! Tweet us at @OFLoakfurniture or tag us on Instagram!
