Blush Crush – The colour for any season

Pink and all of its glorious shades has been a big trend in 2017 and it is set to be a favourite in 2018. And I for one, are totally crushing on blush! It is a colour with so many possibilities, and can be paired with cooler colours such as grey for a softer spring/summer feeling, or with warmer colours such as terracotta for an exquisite autumn/winter interior.


Blush in its dustier shades is the new neutral and if used correctly can really create a soft, sophisticated interior that will look great through all the seasons.

Here is what Abi Dare from These Four Walls has to say about this colour trend:

Earthy colours are set to become increasingly popular in 2017: powdery pink, terracotta, sand, ochre, cinnamon, rust, olive green. They provide a great way to introduce subtle colour into muted schemes, so they work brilliantly in minimalist, Scandinavian-inspired homes where brighter shades might jar. They’re both warming and calming, and they look wonderful offset against neutrals. They’re incredibly versatile, too: you could start small by introducing a few earth-coloured ceramics, or go bolder and paint the walls.


Here are a few ideas for using blush in your interior:

Create a fresh look in your living room with a soft blush pink couch. Opt for a lighter shade that will soften the room without looking too feminine and pair it with other neutral colours to create an inviting  space. The Madison velvet sofa from Me and My Trend is the perfect shade and the velvet texture creates a luxurious feeling.


Use a blush coloured rug to add a touch of soft sophistication to an otherwise dramatic and modern space or to add a layer of warmth and vibrance to a neutral space.


Not brave enough to make a total commitment to blush? Add a few cushions or art prints to bring in this beautiful shade and lighten up the room. Thread Design has a beautiful range of blush cushions made in NZ. Find unique art prints at Bridget Hall Design based in Wanaka, NZ.

I hope you have fallen in love with blush, and be sure to let me know how you have incorporated this beautiful shade in your interior!
