Interior design, like everything is else, is subject to trends and fashions. Over time these trends change and adapt and hopefully we do too. Well, if like me, then you adapt but you are usually late to the party. It would be difficult to miss the recent millennial pink craze if you have spent anytime on the internet in the past year or walked past a shop that sells cushions. There are plenty of other interior crazes at the moment which I am enjoying but the Millennial Pink one is oneI have delved right into. Incase you are reading this wondering what on Earth the ‘Millennial Pink’ is then it is simply blush pink to those who like to stick with traditional names. It has since been dubbed ‘Millennial’ as the age group affectionately known as Millennials seem to have taken this colour and made it theirs.

Why Pink?

So why choose pink? Isn’t it a bit girly. Well, yes, in some ways it is. And in many others it isn’t. There has been a huge rise in people knocking down the gender stereotypes associated with colours and men can often be seen sporting a pink shirt to work these days. For many years it has been ok for girls to like and wear blue, so why not pink?

I have been very conscious myself that Hubby lives in a house with three women. His life has been taken over by pink. So as a vague compromise I have kept it out of the bedroom and gone for a dark blue there (another great trend).

But pink won me over completely due to how well it compliments black, white and grey. Given the choice I would live in a monochrome heaven but in the interest of a few splashes of colour I have added a good amount of Millennial Pink.

Cushions

I started the slip into pink slowly with a few cushions. The larger ones are from Dunelm and the smaller ones can be found at Made.Com. The exact ones pictured here seem to have been discontinued but Made still have a lovely selection of pink cushions of a similar tone.

Initially I was concerned that they would clash, and I guess they do. But the contrasting blush pink tones work really well together. To complete the toning down I will eventually add a cream cushion too.

Prints

I found these prints at Desenio. Honestly, it was so hard to choose which ones to go for. In the end I decided by size and the fact that there were three complimenting patterns. I knew I wanted three above the sofa and I wanted them to make a statement. I couldn’t be happier with these.

Copper Accents

I have a serious copper or rose gold obsession these days and when used alongside pink it seems to work even better. I opted for subtle editions so I went for some fairy lights in a vase (both bought separately) and some small tea light holders.

Coasters

My final subtle addition was the Himalayan pink marble coasters with a gold line. I found these in Homesense which is part of the TKMaxx group. This means that you may not find them if you look. So I really apologise for not being more helpful but it may be worth trying.

Flowers are always a great way to boost a colour or add another dimension.

What are your favourite interior trends of the past or present? Do you think pink will stick around or will it quickly look dated and drab?

    It looks so restful so exactly right but I do live the copper touches too #ThursdayTeam

    This is gorgeous! Modern, clean, and cozy! I love it! The copper touches are brilliant! I never would have thought to combine the two!

    I’m not very updated with trends but I do love pastel colours like blush pink, powder blue and turquoise shades. I love the coasters that you got. #Thursdayteam

    I used to hate pink but I am absolutely loving this trend. I’ve got some rose gold accessories and they go so nicely with certain shades of grey and dusty blue (I don’t know if that’s even a colour!) I’m even wearing a pink jumper today. I have three boys so I’m working hard to inject more pink around the house. #ThursdayTeam

    Love this look hun it’s so beautiful and peaceful and just goes to show that pink can be done very tastefully in the home!

    I’m not a huge pink fan (my daughter is though!) but I do love that dusty pink pillow – its such a subtle splash of colour.. I seriously need to get moving on doing some decorating – I repainted all my walls 3 years ago…and still waiting to put the pictures back – I need to work on that!

    Well seeing as I am a huge fan of pink I think that this living room is absolutely gorgeous. I am especially loving the copper accents as well.

    I am loving how the copper accents are complimenting the pink decor and cushions in your living room space, definitely something I would love to adding my home

    Oh, I am definitely team pink ALL the way! Love what you’ve done in your living room – to be fair, there isn’t that much pink – you’ve balanced it beautifully! And I share a house with four males (two kids, partner and dog) 🙂

    I think it looks so gorgeous. I wish I was allowed to do a soft pink style living room but my fiancee is obsessed with white, grey and green at the moment. I love your prints from Desenio. We’re getting some prints from there for our office soon. I think they do some amazing pictures. x

    I am in love with your living room! It looks so beautiful and the pink isn’t overwhelming but adds in a great pop of colour throughout. Maybe I’ll be allowed to get full creative control on the living room… I would have pink throughout haha

    I’ve obviously been living under a rock. The pink millenial craze totally passed me by, lol.

    When you said pink, I had a totally different vision in my head. These tone are really subtle and the overall look works really well
