Blushing Over Colour

by Carlisle Homes

Combining rich textures and soft pastels into your home will almost always create a luxe, but liveable area for you and your family to enjoy.

Detailing a house in accents of blush, white and grey, then paired with rose gold or cooper trinkets, will perfectly compliment a home’s natural elements like wood and granite and soften the visible natural features too. So get your colour palette inspo on and use it as a way of expressing your individual style.

Uber Chic Accents

Colour palette is key when trying to keep your room free of the over-the-top-syndrome. Staying on trend and classic, will only work if you keep accents in line with the décor. Don’t fear the colour ‘blush’ as it is a subtle take on gender oriented pink and is a perfect partner to classic white, charcoal and black. Keep the textures in line with your choice of accessories too. There’s no need to paint the walls in pink right away, simply start with subtle accents of bright colour and slowly build from there.

Blush Crush

If you decide to take the plunge and keep a room predominantly (different) shades of the one colour, in particular the greatest colour palette trend, blush, then the accents and décor which will work best are bold pops of black or charcoal. These colours, complement each other so well as marrying masculine and feminine tones create optimum interior design counter balance. Keep pieces, a slightly darker shade to the colour used on the wall and for maximum effect a simple but stylish feature lamp will literally make the room pop. Another great effective way of keeping the theme alive, is marrying wall art with hints of the shade/s of your primary colour palette.

No amount of beautiful accessories, will hide second rate linen, so do yourself a favour and invest in top quality bedding, in on trend shades of blush, grey or staple white so you will always have a boudoir suitable for royalty. Once you have good quality sheets, duvet and pillow slips, accents can be added as desired. Wall art, pillows and metallic add a little maturity when you are dealing with pastel shades. Small quirky side tables are a great way to finish off the look.
