#Trending: Blush Accents

blush tones

If you were to head on over to my Pinterest you’d probably feel like you put on a pair of rose coloured glasses because my boards are all coordinating in a soft colour scheme of blush, white and grey. This trend has taken over the design world, especially after “Rose Quartz” was named one of the Pantone colours of 2016. I love how this rosy colour adds softness and femininityย to the minimalist design craze, and would love to find ways to add it to my home.

While I’m in Toronto I’m definitely going to be taking advantage of the vast number of amazing interior design stores that we do not have in Halifax. I cannot wait to check out H&M home! I have spent many an evening scrolling through their home ware and will definitely make a visit. Better yet, we are driving home to Nova Scotia at the end of the month, and I won’t have to worry about packing all my finds into my suitcase whilst sticking to airport rules! My bank account should be very afraid.

How to make it work for you

To make blush work in a space I think you need to balance it out with some natural elements so that it doesn’t end up looking overly girly. Adding neutral browns and beige colours through wicker baskets is a great way to add texture while keeping the space feeling light and airy. I love the black and beige detail in this basket from IKEA because it gives the perfect amount of contrast and textureย while also complimenting the rosy details.

I think that adding plants is essential to bringing life (literally) to any room, and I especially love how these succulents look in their concrete planters. The concrete, much like the black detail in the basket brings an industrial and masculine touch to the otherwise feminine colour palette.

If you’d like to know what products I featured in this little round up, head on over to my Polyvore account! If I’m ever bored I love making sets for outfit ideas and creating home ware lists.

How will you incorporate this trendy shade into your home?

Sincerely, Rowan
