Chic and versatile, blush is a grown-up take on the colour pink, offering a sophisticated softness that is incredibly workable throughout your home.


About the colour blush pink

Blush pink – the colour of tutus, roses and macarons. It represents both femininity and our inner child, offering a gentle sweetness along with a hint of playfulness. Like the blush that creeps across our cheeks when we’re embarrassed, this shade of pink is sensitive and warming.

Pink itself represents love, care and compassion. In its lightest blush form, it is synonymous with softness and purity. They say that deeper the shade of pink, the more passionate and energetic it is, and as a lighter tone, blush is more gentle and relaxed.

A new type of neutral, blush pink is a powdery soft alternative to ivory, cream and nude. It arrives in a number of tonal varieties, from a barely-there blush to darker shades of blossom.

Blush pink borrows its hint of lust and energy from the colour red, though this is extremely diluted by a generous helping of white. Some shades of blush may contain a touch of yellow, bringing a sense of warmth. Alternatively, there’ll be a tint of blue, offering a cool freshness.

In colour psychology, pink signifies positivity and hope. In its blush form, this certainly rings true.


How to use blush pink in your home

In the home, blush pink has an incredibly calming effect. When using it, try to stick a limited palette; two shades of blush combined a grey, navy or teal works well. You could also maintain a neutral colour palette with shades of sand, linen or pebble, reminding us of blush pink’s earthiness. For a relaxed look, layer shades of pink upon one another. Or make more of a statement by combining with darker tones of blue, green or grey.

Blush pink walls work well, especially when broken up with deeper tones of terracotta or mauve. Consider a pink sofa or armchair to make a big statement, and in the bedroom, a blush pink headboard will add a soft feminine touch. For a more subtle nod to blush, you could add blush pink cushions or throws to your existing furniture. Much like its close relative, peach, blush pink offers a versatility and workability that makes it far easier to manage that more saturated tones of pink, red and orange. 

Blush works well with a variety of textures, including leather, woodgrain and wool blends, as well as hard surfaces like concrete, marble and metal. It is a truly versatile colour and an excellent choice for décor throughout the home.
