Pink Upholstery Fabric

Vanessa loves pink with pink with pink! Mixing soft shades such as my Mallow and Lily Pink with the stronger shades of Damson and Sweet Pea, is so delicate and indulgent. The colour is cheery, sophisticated, and pretty.

Sweet Pea is the brightest and most strident pink and makes up striking pink pattern curtains. See Pretty Maids, Simple Ticking Detail, and Stockholm Stripe fabric designs.

Pink Upholstery Fabric

Vanessa loves pink with pink with pink! Mixing soft shades such as my Mallow and Lily Pink with the stronger shades of Damson and Sweet Pea, is so delicate and indulgent. The colour is cheery, sophisticated, and pretty.

Sweet Pea is the brightest and most strident pink and makes up striking pink pattern curtains. See Pretty Maids, Simple Ticking Detail, and Stockholm Stripe fabric designs.

Damson pink is a bluer softer tone and features as the mid pink shade in so many of my designs. Gypsy Garland, Stockholm Stripe, Fruit Garden, Cow Parsley, In Full Flight, and Pretty Maids, are some examples to name a few! It makes the most beautifully delicate soft pink curtains which is why it is Vanessa's favourite soft pink fabric.

Mallow is halfway to Lily Pink, and this pink upholstery fabric from this range can make stunning curtains for a playroom in the Lattice Leaf or Little Fern designs.

Lily Pink is the softest prettiest pink in Branching Out, Wild Fern, Lattice Leaf, and Little Fern. Pink fabrics would suit being made into Made to Measure blackout blinds or curtains for bedrooms, kitchens and playrooms.

Dusky Pink has a more vintage feel with more brown mixed in with it. Popular designs in this colour are my Up the Garden Path, Dawn Chorus, For the Love of Rose, and Pretty Maids fabric designs.

Soft Raspberry is another pinky red fabric, as seen in the Dainty Daisy design. Sea Pink is another light coloured pink, both of which are perfect for soft furnishings.

How to decorate with pink

Think of pink as a neutral — it works with any decorating scheme; Multiple shades of pink combine with crisp white create a warm and cosy feel in a bedroom. With the patterns used stay away from overtly childish themes, sticking instead to classic rose pink floral fabrics for a timeless look that can age with your child. See my Lazy Daisy design for inspiration.

Colours that complement pink

A touch of green can ground a pink decorating scheme, such as the Kale in my Fruit Garden designs, or Sepals and Petals. Give a natural look a garden spin, with blooms of pink. Mix with plenty of light wood tones, neutral linen fabrics. Try pink and green fabrics in more muted tones for a formal living room: Kale and Damson in fruit Garden, mix beautifully with wicker furniture,

Pinks also like to be paired with softer shades of grey, such as Scree and Clay in my For the Love of Rose, French Ticking, and the large bird print, In Full Flight.

My Dusky Pink is a vintage pink fabric: Pink here is really faded red; it’s pink with a past, like a colour that has softened over the years, which gives the room a mature, wise air. This is particularly good for a pink upholstery fabric in the sitting room, either as chairs, cushions or sofas: see my Pretty Maids, my modern day Toile: For The Love of Rose and Stockholm Stripe where I have mixed old rose pink with a gentle brown called Whippet.

With greens, greys and soft powder blues being the best complementary colours with pink, choose my Damson mixed with Kale, Scree or Charcoal: see Fruit Garden Detail, Stockholm Stripe, and In Full Flight.  In my 100% linen woven fabric, Lapland Stripe, I mix soft pink with pigeon grey and soft blue.
