EX­PERT TIPS

Colour ex­pert and blog­ger Anne Roselt has these tips for us­ing on-trend pale pink in in­te­ri­ors

The en­ergy from pale pink re­laxes the mus­cles and calms the mind, mak­ing it ideal for liv­ing spa­ces.

Se­lect a pink with a sim­i­lar un­der­tone to the other colours in your scheme. In this room, a warm pale pink blends seam­lessly with the wooden floors, fur­ni­ture and ac­ces­sories.

For a beautiful con­tem­po­rary ef­fect, con­trast pink with darker hues such as char­coal, navy blue and for­est green. Green is the com­ple­men­tary colour to pink on the colour wheel; when used to­gether, these two colours balance and en­hance one an­other.

For a more gen­der neu­tral look, in­tro­duce nat­u­ral tex­tures, for ex­am­ple, wood, leather and wool, and for glam­our, vel­vets like this sofa and me­tallics.
