I love 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 feminine and indulgent. It's not just for little girls. The colour of the moment is cheery, sophisticated, and pretty.
My Damson pink is a bluer softer tone and features as the mid pink shade in so many of my designs, see Gypsy Garland, Cow Parsley and Leaf Dance; to name just a few…. It makes the most beautifully delicate soft pink curtains which is why it is my favourite soft pink fabric.
Mallow is halfway to Lily Pink and looks stunning made up into “Mallow is halfway to Lily pink, and this pink upholstery fabric from this range can make stunning curtains or a playroom in Wild and Free design.
Lily Pink is the softest prettiest pink in Branching Out and Tea Time, both pink fabrics would suit being made into made to measure dusky pink blackout blinds or curtains for bedrooms, kitchens and playrooms.
Dusky Pink has a more vintage bird feel with more brown mixed in with it, see Up the Garden Path.
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.

Colours that compliment pinks
A touch of green can ground a pink decorating scheme, such as the Kale in my Fruit Garden designs and also 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,
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 for sitting room chairs and 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 complimentary colours with Pink choose my Damson mixed with Kale, Scree or Charcoal: see Fruit Garden Detail and Stockholm Stripe and In Full Flight. In my 100% linen woven fabric, Lapland Stripe, I mix a soft pink with pigeon grey and soft blue.
