Colour stories: Urban Blush

From soft pastel tints to burgundy hits, chic shades of pink are this season’s go-to hue

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.
