How would you describe this look? This is a dreamy scheme, romantic and feminine with a contemporary edge. The baby blue wall and pale pink accessories combine beautifully and work harmoniously together. In fact, these two colours work so well together they were named as Pantone Colour of the Year in 2016! The blue and pink hues echo nature in all its glory (think pale blue skies that melt into marshmallow pinks at sunrise and sunset!) - What better colours to provide a calming backdrop for a bedroom scheme.
But pink and blue sounds a bit twee – how do you avoid it looking too sickly? It’s important to balance the colours and how they are used. In this pretty room, the carpet acts as a neutraliser and the blues and pinks are broken up with areas of white. Keep the skirting boards white for freshness and use the crisp, frilled bedlinen to provide more breaks in the colours to create that ‘girly’ look without being too over the top.
With all the pink and blue – how come it doesn’t look too sugary? By choosing a muted floorcovering, together with contemporary art and furniture, the scheme is lifted and neutralised - it would be a very different story if this scheme was teamed with a Louis XVI floral patterned chair instead of a contemporary Eames-style chair, or if the art work was a 50’s style floral explosion! It’s all about good balance, careful choices and juxtaposition!
