Winter Pink Inspiration

With the worlds of fashion and decor more in tune with each other than ever before, it should come as no surprise that this winter’s interior design trends are reflective of those on the catwalk. Perhaps an unusual but welcome choice for winter, this year’s emerging colour is pink, the ideal shade for anyone looking to replicate a gentle and cosy winter wonderland in their home.

Pink is a warm and inviting colour that makes a refreshing change to the aquas, blues and greys we are so used to at this time of year. This year’s winter pink is about pastel shades with splashes of French rose, Persian pink and brink pink. It is an easy and effortless look to replicate on a plain backdrop with throws, cushions and accessories.

When coupled with soft and plush textures, using pink in the home can help achieve a homely and luxurious setting to warm the winter blues. Similarly, introducing pink to your wardrobe is a sure fire way to brighten winter’s gloomy days. Vogue editor Francesca Burns says the pink piece to invest in this winter is a coat, with woolly coats from Mulberry, Celine and Miu Miu being firm favourites. This gorgeous woollen alternative from Zara is a bargain at 80 pounds.

Pink works for both day and night dressing, with cocktail and slip dresses in rosy shades and soft textures flying off the peg at Jonathan Saunders, Lanvin and Nina Ricci. This rose catwalk inspired dress is from ASOS and features all over patterned ribbon applique.

In keeping with the trend, rose cushions, curtains and rugs are popular and readily available right now, adding a snug and feminine feel to your rooms and providing an ideal way to introduce the pink trend without needing to touch a paintbrush. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different prints, patterns, textures and fabrics – a mix of textures and shades adds to the homely feel.

A final trend worth mentioning is the use of the statement piece: and this works both in the home and in your wardrobe. Create the wow factor by choosing a single bold piece of furniture in a vibrant pink shade to add focus and attention to your cosy winter backdrop. Stick to the palette and steer well clear of gaudy colours like magenta and fuchsia.
