Adding colour into your home can be daunting, knowing what will work and won’t. There are certain colours that can be polarising and pink is definitely one of those, but the key is to use tones of pink to suit your décor, compliment rather than overtake your current colour scheme. Blush is a subdued take on pink, a dusky, muted tone of pink that almost has a vintage feel to it. This colour has a romantic feel and looks great with a surprising array of other colours!

Tips for Using Blush

  • Blush works well with white and creams, but also surprisingly, works well with black and charcoal. Try adding metallic accessories to really compliment blush tones.


  • Blush works well used in small amounts, a cushion here or a vase there. This is a great way to introduce a new colour into your home, without having to change much.


  • It is a colour that has a romantic feel and I love the look of soft fabrics in a blush tone. Think linen bedding or blankets in soft blush tones.


  • For paint colours in a blush tone try Taubmans Really Rose, Pale Strawberry, Blushing Bridesmaid and Pink Clay Pot.
