This is how you use pink paint in your home like a sophisticated grown-up

From the windows to the walls, it’s time to think pink. Whether you’re a candy girl or fizzed about fuchsia, this hue spreads a feeling of love, safety, caring and compassion. How’s that for a welcoming touch? It’s time to forget those rigid rules of the past; pink and red make the perfect pairing. Think of it as conscious clashing.

Think back to those bubblegum-chewing days of old and bring some colourful pops of happiness into your interior spaces. Pair these shades with a moodier tone to create a more grown-up vibe.

Interior Tips

• Bold tones such as fuchsia, candy pink and red are best balanced with soft whites, such as Resene ‘Bianca’, and blush pink, such as Resene ‘Wax Flower’, or anchored with black, such as Resene ‘All Black’.

• To make these shades work in a sophisticated way, add more jewel-inspired elements such as a touch of emerald green using Resene ‘Aquamarine’ or a hint of gold using Resene FX Metallic.

• Choose Resene paint and wallpaper, and carpet and furnishings that all pull from the same colour story to create a cohesive look with a more modern feel.

• Think beyond the walls and continue your look onto your ceiling, floor and furniture.
