Colour Crush: Blush and Green

10/04/2017

There is a new colour crush on the my horizon. Beautiful Blush and Green. And whilst there’s really nothing new about this magical partnership, it is all over my radar and Pinterest pages. The rosy, pinkish tint is somewhat of trending colour for the season. Maison & Objet, an interior design trade fair held in Paris, is the benchmark for interior style each year. The January 2017 show favoured blush in their colour palette, and you’re seeing it everywhere in both commercial and residential spaces.

This colour combination is making a splash in everything from textiles, to tableware, wall paint and flooring. The eternally pretty shade of pink compliments green beautifully – and the best part of this colour combo is that it pairs beautifully with neutral tones like grey. Because, let’s face it, if a colour doesn’t pair well with grey, I’m probably not going to love it.

It is possible to combine these fun, fresh and bold colours with your existing neutral interior. If you’re keen to try out this new trend, I’ve making it easier for you with a round-up of my recommendations from Jotun Paint’s best options for this palette:

For those of you who are not brave enough to cover a wall in blush or green, you can also introduce the colours with soft furnishings and accessories. New scatter cushions are always the easiest way to give your space a quick refresh, but there are so many other decorative elements to use. I am in love with the Sooji Kitchen Towels with Monstera prints from Emaan Home, which could be used to update your kitchen, along with some matching crockery from IKEA’s SOMMAR collection. I’m also loving the Studio Joop Prints, a new addition of artworks available from The Bowery Company. Each print comes signed by hand, with their own story.

Take a look my ‘shop the look’ collection of goodies below to help bring a little blush and green into your home.

  • Mariam from @interiorflavor reached out to me and asked if I'd like to participate in her #monthofinspiration campain and offer a tip to everyone. Mine is a really simple one that has to do with something I'm asked all the time... how do I have white furniture with kids and a pet? The answer is really simple - removable covers, peeps. My white sofa has them and they're washed every few months. It's the very reason why I partnered with @helmiibeds to design a bed frame that has removable, washable covers! No fuss, no stress. #toptip #removablebedcover #removablesofacovers #loosecovers
  • Progress report in Ethan's room... I wasn't feeling the one third ratio of the colour block against the bed, so raised the line to two thirds and I'm so glad I did. Try to ignore the pile of mess just visible on the bed and marvel at the wonder of that colour. It's called Northern Mystic but I'd totally have named it forest green. Either way, I'm loving it!

  • We've got a full house this weekend with my niece and nephew here and all 4 kids are coughing and congested ๐Ÿ˜” poor things.  We've had to pass on our usual Saturday activities with @pirates.surf in favour of a couch day. I caught little miss camera shy, aka Ava-licious, chilling hard with Peter Rabbit ๐Ÿฐ

  • New to the portfolio: a piano room. Take a tour of this moody and discerning space on houseofhawkes.com. image by @marli_smithphotography #houseofhawkes #pianoroom #yamahapiano #wallpaper #pianoman
  • I've put in an order for a new slip cover for my #helmiiXhouseofhawkes bed. It's for my guestroom makeover and I've opted for the off-white. I should have it by next week and I'll be sure to show you how quick and easy the change is! #bedslipcover guestroom #makeover #easypeasy
  • When @style____k (bless her for her patience) was trying to get a shot of us at the @fronteriors product shoot, but we were knee deep in hardware discussions. Again. 
Also, could you die for the plywood fronts and top for BESTA? And the cane doors for BILLY!!?? ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿคญ

  • Today was a biggie for @liveloudgirl and I. That little idea about making custom fronts, tops and accessories for IKEA frames became a big reality as we embarked on our inaugural shoot for the @fronteriors website with the first few items fresh off the production line. The full collection isn't yet ready but we've decided that rather than waiting for everything to be finsihed before we go live, we're going to make items available to purchase as and when they are ready. A decision based largely on our excitement induced impatience, but also because of the 'are we there yet' questions we are fielding on a daily basis. And we get it. At this point, theres already a great selection of options coming online, including the hotly anticipated cane doors for the BILLY bookcase. We're so excited to bring this concept to the local market! Keep on eye out for the announcement of our website going live! 
Big thanks to everyone who assisted us in pulling today together: @nordichomeworx for the dreamy flooring, @8thstreetstudios for the studio space, @style____k for getting me out of my ripped jeans, @marli_smithphotography for being behind the lens, @jleeksma for video  magic, @jotunpaintsarabia for always having our back... and our walls! @thebowerycompany for accessories, @valentina.p.design for amazing organisation

  • Over at @fronteriors some of our first units are almost off the production line and we're prepping to shoot images for the website every soon. Epic excitement here as It's. All. Happening! Eeek. I'm so thrilled to be embarking on this big adventure with such a fabulous partner in design endeavours - @liveloudgirl ... afterall, someone's gotta look good around here! #funtimes #fronts #frontsquad #fronteriors #herewego
  • All eyes on Kate ๐Ÿ‘€ because some icons never go out of style.
