The Blossom is Out and Pink is In

Branches heavy with blossom are starting to appear in streets and gardens across the country. From delicate blush and sugar pink to deep fushia, a spectrum of shades has burst out to mark the progress of spring. However, their beauty is fleeting, in just a few weeks it will all be gone.

Pink, however, is back on the agenda for interiors. Pantone, the leading colour system company, declared rose quartz to be colour of the year, alongside Serenity, a pale blue. The pairing of pink seems to be the key to success. Team it with blue, yellow or orange for a vibrant palette, or use shots of hot, rich shades to add depth to a scheme. A grown-up pink is starting to assert itself and it’s gorgeous.

Our pick of the new pinks:

Farrow and Ball have launched Peignoir, a grey-pink neutral inspired by the chiffon gowns worn by women. It is an elegant colour for grown-up interiors.

Osborne and Little have launched Lempicka, a bold paper inspired by Tamara de Lempicka, a Polish painter influenced by Cubism. This glamours paper reflects the artist’s glittering life.

Fired Earth’s new spring collection includes Futurism, a luxurious set of chevron shaped tiles inspired by the Futurist movement, sure to become a classic.

Curiousa’s new Oolong lampshade is a beautiful baby pink moon, inspired by Chinese teapots, in a semi-opaque glass. Just delicious!
