Since finishing my grey make-over of the dining room and lounge in a decorative sense, I’ve been waiting to share it with you until I have completed the decorative ‘finishing touches’ it’s currently lacking. I’ve chosen some bits and pieces, re-invented others and have just a few ideas that I need to execute now.
After my overdose of calming neutrals in the grey walls and neutral toned furnishings combined with natural woods, I started to think about how to finish the look. Writing a blog like this comes naturally to me as I’m always searching for visual inspiration, flitting from style to style mentally and alighting on new things to try. Decor is no exception and the best thing about my new grey rooms are that they still feel like a blank canvas, just moodier and with more personality.
However, try as I might I can’t escape my love of colour and more and more I’m thinking about how to inject it back into the room that I’ve just covered in calm with the new greys. I decided to have a look around on Pinterest for some new inspiration and found some nothing short of beautiful images that I thought I’d share with you all today.
Perhaps unsurprisingly after my recent obsession with pink, that’s where I started and although my intention was to share images with you in a variety of accent colours against grey, I found so many pink ones that I thought I’d run a little mini series.
My favourites here are definitely the moodier grey tones contrasted with splashes of almost neon pinks and whilst making my sofa magically turn pink isn’t a viable option, it’s the colour combinations and textures I’m taking inspiration from in these images.
If I had to categorise my own sense of style I’d definitely err on the side of rough luxe. It’s the one category that enables me to combine my love of glamour and style with salvage chic and I’ll definitely be adding some metallic gilt and glass accents to the rooms.
I also totally surprised myself by pinning some paler examples of pink and grey, falling hard for the almost mauve tinge of this velvet chair against the darker grey walls and loving the fresh shell pink curtains in this neutrals and grey accented room.
Right now, I’m just trying to muster the confidence to splash out on some statement and accent pieces to set off the room and keep my passion for brights happy, whilst still making my living spaces a sanctuary.
What do you think about pink accents for your decor? Too girly? Too in-your-face? Have you seen anything to inspire you here?
As always I’d love to hear your thoughts,
