Colour stories: Urban Blush

Sweet berry chairs add depth and drama to a marshmallow-tinged space, creating a delicious contrast of hues.

A delicate pink-hued glass carafe is the perfect partner for shimmering brass and luxe marble, making a harmonious textural melody.

If walls could talk… For a glam, urban edge, shake things up with a riot of pinks applied in bold, geometric strokes.

From full-bodied rosé to the palest salmon-pink, layering gradated blush tones in statement shapes hits all the right notes.

For a fresh take on luxe soft furnishings, build curtain tiers of pastiche patterns in an understated palette with a block pastel panel.

Avoid an all-out sugar rush by teaming modern pink walls and a sorbet-sweet ottoman with a sleek bronze console.

A watery blush gets an unexpected punch in a painterly wallpaper.

Rose-tinted wall tiles set against a plum canvas create a striking focal point… Brass skirting keeps the look crisp and contemporary.
