Pink is one of those colours that people either love or hate, but it deserves a lot more credit than it gets as a serious colour. It has a huge impact on our emotional state, eliciting calm, happy or energising feelings depending on whether it is pale like blush, saturated like cerise, or vibrant like hot pink. That's a lot of powerful goodness from one colour, so who wouldn't want to live with at least a little of it?
Although it's a colour that will benefit us all year round, this is the time to focus on all things pink. From garden roses to glasses of rosé, pink is the colour of summer. Interior Designer Anna Burles, of Run For The Hills, explains how she incorporates the colour in her projects: "We love using pink in cool ways. The key is to juxtapose it with edgier and more urban finishes, colours and design details to stop it feeling too feminine. Charcoal grey, powder pink and strong, crisp whites are a classic combination."
Here are some ideas for incorporating pink into your interior.
