Millennial pink

11 July 2018

This dusky tone is proving quite the hit as this summer's colour of choice for homeware. Our California Modern trend, which you can read about here, highlights this particular palette of pink as the ultimate way to refresh your interior this season. What's more, destinations such as Sketch in London further enhance the popularity of the colour and confirm its au courant status.

Its ability to be matched up with bolder contrasting paint colours means that it's not just a pretty pink, quite the contrary, it can be contrasted against bold blue or burnt orange and still hold its own. What's the easiest way to work millennial pink into your home? We round up our pick of key products for you to choose from.

Statement sofa

Love millennial pink? Then we suggest you go all out and buy a statement sofa to add a healthy dose of wow factor to your living room.

Unusual? Yes. Garish? Actually, no. 

Although it's pink, it's a very soft and subtle tone, making it more liveable and adaptable than you might expect. And, by opting for our blush velvet material as the upholstery finish, it's projected into tangible luxe territory. While it might not be everybody's tastes, it certainly offers something different from the more conventional neutral sofa colours.


Designer floor covering

Consider a tonal rug for underfoot. Rugs are a great way of getting colour and pattern into a room - they have an ability to give a space an almost instantaneous refresh and are relatively simple to install.

Use a rug to "zone" an area. This is particularly useful design trick if you live in an open-plan space and want to create identifiable sections. For example, place a rug underneath a coffee table and sofa to make the area feel more like a living room, or slide one below a dining table and chairs to make it feel more like a separate dining room. 

This Geo Rug is the perfect shade and finish for adding an on-trend millennial pink floor covering into your home this summer. Sporting a contemporary and bold geometric print design, it's great for adding interest and designer detail to a room.


Match it up with... a sprinkle of metallic

Millennial pink looks best when mixed with a splash of metal. Start by painting a backdrop wall in either a pink paint tone or a contrasting blue or burnt umber colour. An edited selection of shimmering copper and rose gold accessories will add an extra layer of luxe to the colour palette and looks particularly sleek when updating a dining table.

Work some metallic magic with a Rose Gold Marble Effect Dinner Set, and add elegance with some metallic glassware. Metallic Wine Glasses and Tumbler Glasses, shown above, will show that you're paying attention to detail, just like a professional interior designer would.

Seeking pink inspo?

We love a design trip, and when it comes to millennial pink nowhere is more apt than Sketch. Interiors editor Rory Robertson sought inspiration via a recent recce of the highly acclaimed London destination that's one of the city's hippest eateries. The main dining room is decorated from top to bottom in our favourite hue, read the feature here.
