The coolest colour in your home right now has to be pink. In recent years Scandinavian design brands have embraced it wholeheartedly, giving us contemporary sticking-plaster and blush shades which, teamed with grey, pale wood and punchier hues like mustard, banish all connotations of Barbie’s mansion. Gentle pinks also have the advantage of creating a complexion-enhancing glow, particularly when used on walls or as lighting. Joa Studholme, international colour consultant at Farrow & Ball and self-confessed ‘colour geek’, is a fan of the brand’s newly launched ‘Peignoir’ shade. ‘Although it’s warm, it’s not sugary or infantile, and its almost dusty quality proves that pink isn’t just for girls.’
