How to inject some millennial pink into your home

When it comes to updating your home it’s best to think pink!

I’ve never been a pink fan of any variety – baby, Barbie – you name it, I don’t like it. But lately my hard edge towards the colour tends to be softening with the onslaught of all things millennial pink. This particular shade of pink can be characterised as any softer pink that ranges from blush to a peach-salmon hybrid. So, although I loathe to admit it, that rustic looking dusky pink which I’m currently coveting, has probably originated from there. So how do you incorporate such a girly hue into your multi-gendered household? The key is to have accents of the shade scattered throughout your home – small touches that will not overpower the senses (or resemble Barbie’s playhouse in any way!) And texture is important. Think velvety cushions, fluffy Tibetan hides slung over the sofa and crisp linens on the bed. Mixing pink with other hues like greys will also save you from a pink overload. Flick through the gallery to see a few of my favourites of the moment which are all found at one of the best homeware stores: Alex & Corban.
