Pink Tones

This is really about the different levels of skin tone colours I’ve spotted from a pink through to softer brown tones; they’ve been used as an accent colour or as a block. Pink is usually associated with a girls bedroom but theses are rather more grown up sophisticated tones. It also reflects the popularity of these colour tones in a wider context – in fashion they’ve been very popular trend and as is so often the case colour trends are usually seen there before they make their way into the home. Suddenly all (well a good many!) samples have been given a pink make-over.

Inga-Sempe_Ruche_Lignet-RosetInga Sempe’s Ruche bed for Ligne Roset was a last minute change. “I thought this was going to be blue!” she said as she bounced onto the bed shown atĀ  Maison et Objet. A quick changeĀ  had been made to a softer feminine nude tone for the room set. As you can see from the image Inga left the bed unmade!

    Good trend-spotting! I like how you described them as ‘skin’ colours. I love how peach has finally made it into furniture and interiors in a big way – it has been on the verge of fashion and design for a while now (I think it was outlawed after the 80s when there was waaaay too much peach around for anyone’s good) but now there are so many gorgeous shades of it to be seen – dusty rose, pale petal and more orangey like coral. Thanks for the report and the nice photos! It’s good to get news from the international shows when I was not lucky enough to go!
