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.47 words
Sweet Pea is my brightest and most strident pink and makes up striking pink curtains, in Dawn Chorus and Up the Garden Path.
My Damson pink has a bluer softer tone and is the mid pink shade in so many of my designs… see Gypsy Garland, Cow Parsley and Leaf Dance; to name just a few…. I think it is my favourite pink.
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 blackout blinds or curtains for bedrooms, kitchens and playrooms.
Dusky Pink has a more vintage feel with more brown mixed in with it.
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 pink floral fabrics for a timeless look that can age with your child. See my Lazy Daisy design and Wild and Free.
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,
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 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 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.
