Firstly, it’s blush, not pink, and after being named colour of the year a few years ago, it is more than a passing design trend, it’s definitely here to stay. Many are attracted to the calming undertones a splash of blush in a room can evoke, that instant ‘I’m home at last feeling’ washes over you when you come through the door. For those who love a colour block, blush is your go-to tone as it partners perfectly with an infinite range of hues, from deep blues and hearty charcoal to fresh nudes and pale greys and silvers.
Let’s take a tour of the beauty of blush through our newest display homes, and discover your new style (and a few shopping hints along the way).
Layer it up
The versatility of blush means you can pair it with contrasting colours just as beautifully as joining it with similar shades. Using the foundation of a charcoal sofa in this living room in the Rochford 1225A, a soft layered effect is achieved using different textured and shades of blush, for a clean and uncluttered look.
Pair it with moody blues
The master suite in the Mayflower 1224 features lovely highlights of blush and magenta to compliment and balance the rich navy blue undertones – creating a tranquil space to escape to. Paired with the ‘greige’ (grey meets beige) backdrop of linear panelling and sheer drapes, this colour combination creates extra space and stunning focal point.

Take your cues from art
Finding the right place to start for your colour inspiration can be the challenge. There really isn’t an exact science to where it begins, sometimes it might just be sparked by a trinket such as vase or a cushion you love. For some, it begins with a piece of art, and the colours flow from there. The striking artwork in the living room of the Rochford 1225A sets the scene for the flow of colours throughout this room, a seamlessly connection to the soft furnishings.

Warm up with hints of colour
While subtlety is the key when including distinct colours like blush and magenta, your bathrooms and tiled areas shouldn’t miss the fun. A splash of colour with a towel or the inclusion of artwork creates a visual link to the rest of the home and a softening effect to hard surfaces.
