If you have a love of feminine pale pinks, Winter 2016 offers the perfect opportunity to update your classic home décor with this refined, faint hue. Just in time for the New Year, shades of ballet slipper pink are set to be major interior design trends for both paint colours and home accents. For anyone who is tired of “greige” walls, pink beige colours or basic whites, here are a few elegant ways to incorporate sweet pale pink into your décor.
Contrast a light pink wall with white furniture: While re-painting all four walls of your living room may be an ambitious feat, you can always craft a soft and welcoming space with a single accent wall. Juxtapose your pale pink statement wall with a white wooden table, cream-coloured sofa and crisp white lampshades to complete your décor.
Use pink décor and blue accents for a striking touch: Pink and blue may seem like clashing shades, but the look of soft pinks and rich navy blues can instantly bring sophistication into any space. Try pairing plush pink accent walls with a royal blue sofa for a glamorous pop of colour.
Pair a pale pink sofa with a shaggy white rug and pale hardwood flooring: For interior design gurus who want to take the plunge into embracing pink furnishings, try refreshing your living room with a light pink sofa. To bring a soft and serene feel to your space, turn to polished blonde hardwood floors and a white shag area rug as flawless finishing touches.
Create a girlish space with soft pink wallpaper and sheer white curtains: If you’re willing to modernize your wallpaper for 2016, turn to pale pink shades and abstract prints to adorn your walls. Contrast the shade with flowing white curtains for an ethereal and ladylike space and an instant girl cave in your own home.
